“I have worked with Rob Stanbery and Practice Transition Partners since 1999, and in that time he has orchestrated two critical practice sales/mergers on my behalf. He is a consummate professional gentleman with absolute integrity, timeliness and always presents clear strategies that work. He has a very unique manner about him that makes you immediately feel at ease, and listened to. He will spend whatever time is needed to build a relationship with a client, or a potential buyer, and is accessible anytime during a transition process. A buyer of a dental practice will always have significant anxiety and concerns about making a good decision. Rob understands this, and in my case he would spend hours upon hours in meetings to address each and every concern a buyer may bring to the table. He is hands on and intimately involved throughout the process. Rob understands a paramount principle in business which is always seek a win-win deal. This is one of the secrets to the stunning success and longevity of Practice Transition Partners.
In my 31 years of private practice, I have completed 5 different practice transitions including mergers/sales, and so I speak from experience. Rob has completed 2 of these 5 deals, and my experience in the other 3 was not exceptional in any way, but filled with some degree of pressure, confusion, and/or lack of support. By comparison, Rob Stanbery, and Practice Transition Partners have exceeded my expectations in every way.
Rob is so well respected by the professional financial community that he has access to the finest accountants, lawyers and bankers who truly act as his partners for his clients in formulating all legal, financial and tax related issues that are critical to a well-planned dental practice transition. Rob also has a reputation of representing very successful dental practices and he understands the high tech, state of the art dental practice. He can equally and successfully represent a multi-million-dollar practice, as well as a solo small practice. He is about the personal touch, while being totally results driven. This comes in a package with honesty, warmth and a cheerful outlook. Rob is truly like that great neighbor, or old friend who would always be available to pull up a barstool, buy you a drink and offer a receptive ear to whatever was important to you...Rob is a rare find in today’s business world.”
I recently sold my amazing dental practice to Dustin Webb. He is the sort of talented and delightful younger dentist that you dream of selling your practice to.
Selling your practice is insanely difficult and emotional...with countless unforeseen complications that cannot be overemphasized.
You absolutely need a honed professional as your broker! This benefits both the buyer and the seller.
I was fortunate to have Rob Stanbery recommended by a colleague. He is phenomenal on every possible level...I doubt my practice sale would have been successful without his help. I give him my strongest endorsement!
“I have great respect for you and the work you do for all this to be accomplished. Great job, Rob! Thank you, doesn't quite say it all. Your perseverance with me, throughout, was amazing... I feel like I'm putting down a fast action book, the last chapter closes, but the adrenaline is still working… thanks again for everything.”
I want to thank you for all of your help with my recent practice sale. We have known each other for at least 16 years, and I must say you are just as energetic, insightful and upbeat as when we first did business on my purchase of this practice years ago.
From start to finish, your positive insight and ability to understand my retirement plans and desire for a compatible buyer at a fair and reasonable valuation were impressive. You and your staff were accessible and available every step of the way and made the process so much easier than I had anticipated. I can recommend your services without hesitation.
When I was first looking into the thought of retirement, I asked for some advice from a good friend who had gone through the process a few years earlier. We got to the part of having someone appraise the practice and assist in the transition; there was no hesitation in his recommendation of Rob Stanbery at Practice Transition Partners.
I met with Rob and felt very comfortable with his knowledge and experience in transitioning dental practices. Throughout the process I was amazed at not only his attention to the details, but to his availability and willingness to take whatever time I needed to understand, approve, or have options for each step along the way. As I told him numerous times, it took me a while to realize I wasn’t the only person he was dealing with at that moment; Rob truly makes you feel like you are! He made me feel confident during a process which could possibly be very uncomfortable.
Practice Transition Partners made my transition as easy as possible, especially helping me to locate a dentist I felt comfortable passing on the care of my patients.
To anyone looking for help with your transition, I would, without hesitation, recommend Rob Stanbery to guide you along the way. I do not see how I could have done it without his knowledge, experience and dedication. Thank you!!!
"Practice Transition Partners was instrumental in helping me to relocate to where I have always wanted to live. They understood the kind of practice I had and were able to find someone with similar goals and practice style. They were with me, every step of the way, throughout the sale to make it as smooth a transition as possible. The kind of practices that we are creating today requires a transition team that truly understands their unique value."
"With great confidence, we would like to introduce you to Practice Transition Partners. Their team of practice transition specialists represents the very best in the business, and has served many of our valued FPC clients nationwide over the years. Whether providing support for practice sales, acquisitions, mergers or valuations, they are quite simply the best!"
I can't begin to thank you for all of the assistance you gave me in my recent purchase of my present dental practice here in Las Vegas. After you helped me sell my practice in Green Bay, Wisconsin, I never thought I would have to call upon your services again. When I decided that semi-retirement wasn't for me and I wanted to own a dental practice again, you were the first person I thought of to call.
My second experience with Practice Transition Partners was just as enjoyable as the first. You were so professional in the manner in which you negotiated the purchase. You were able to calculate a practice value that was reasonable and fair to both me as a buyer and the dentist who was selling the practice. Even his attorney mentioned how impressed he was that you had so many facts correct and that you made so many great recommendations to the correct wording of the final contract.
Your expert advice was reassuring to me, and gave me the confidence I needed to discuss any issue of the purchase with the selling dentist. There was no disagreement with the purchase price because you had taken the time to correctly calculate the value of the practice. The other dentist accepted your figures without an argument because it was clearly evident that you had arrived at the actual true purchase price and value of the existing practice.
Rob, I can't begin to thank you enough for helping me begin this new phase of my dental career. I would honestly, and without any hesitation, recommend you to any dentist who is considering selling their practice or purchasing an existing practice. You have my gratitude and appreciation, and I will always be grateful for your expertise.
And after selling in Las Vegas a few years later . . .
"It is a strange feeling, but after 44 years, it was just time . . . I enjoy the retirement and being home with Pam. The decision to sell was the right thing to do at the right time. I am so grateful for all of your help in making all of this happen. You have been a very important part of my business life over the past twelve years and I sincerely appreciate your friendship."
"I want to thank you . . . for making this acquisition as smooth as possible. You are very professional and very resourceful. You made it easy every step of the way. I started my transition into Dr. Palmer's practice and using your advice, I have had nothing but a very warm reception. You are first class all the way! It has been a pleasure working with you.
"Although you were representing the seller of the practice I purchased, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated all your help in making this deal come together. You are true professionals. You made what could have been a difficult transaction easy with your high level of service, positive attitude, and personable disposition. Thank you again for all you help.
A big thanks is in order for successfully finding the right buyer for my practice. From our first interview to the final signing of the documents and even the follow up after the sale was incredible. Not only were you great with all of the technical aspects of a practice sale---but more importantly the personal touch you added was the icing on the cake. With the way you handled the personal side of the sale I was convinced you had a Doctorate in Psychology. I feel that I could call you at any time and you would promptly get back with me--even in the middle of your busy schedule. You were the greatest!!!!!
The prospectus and brochure that you put together for my practice were very impressive and thorough. It was first class all of the way, something that I would expect from you now that I have had the privilege of working with you. The fact that we were able to find a buyer with a similar philosophy was probably one of the most important aspects of putting the sale of my practice together. I have since had a number of phone conversations with the dentist that bought my practice and she is doing great. The TEAM is really grateful that we were able to find an incredible person with similar dental skills and philosophy to carry on our vision of dental care. That in itself has made all the difference in the world as far as TEAM and patient retention. Because of similar the philosophy my old TEAM of 12-13 years has felt extremely comfortable with this major change in their lives, a most difficult task to achieve.
Thanks again Rob for not only being the conductor of the orchestra, but becoming a friend through all of the ups and downs with this major change in my life. You made my dream come true---leaving my dental family in the hands of someone that will carry the torch forward with confidence and pride. What more could you ask for???
I have never met an expert that was as knowledgeable as you relating to dental practice valuations. You were able to respond to every question asked of you by the attorney. . . Thank you for being a true professional and thank you for being a friend of our client. . . If I ever have client who wants to sell his dental practice, you will be contacted immediately.
"Practice Transition Partners took all the pain out of selling my practice. Financing for the buyer was lined up ahead of time based on my numbers, and when it came time to do the deal it was a 'slam dunk'. But most impressive to my family and me was the time Rob Stanbery spent with us getting to know his clients on a personal level. I had already relocated my family 300 miles from the practice. Rob came with me on a weekend to meet my family. After this particular weekend, we knew we were being represented by a friend."
Just a note to express my thanks for the great job you did in helping us with the practice sale. I never had any idea how many details there are and how important it is to have someone of your caliber and expertise to oversee the whole process. I would certainly give you and your staff the highest marks for excellence.
"Thanks for all of your help . . . If any other doctors want references, please include me as one who can say that your services were absolutely worth everything and then some! I was very, very pleased with your dedication, hard work and perseverance.
Thanks so much."
"I so appreciate your professional assistance with selling my practice. Both of you were so easy to work with and did such a great job with all aspects of the sale. I realized that you both were very busy, but you always made me feel that my practice was the only one you were handling. Meeting you both in person at the very beginning of our relationship was a big plus for my wife and me.
Your appraisal of my practice was very thorough and I was impressed with the professional appearance of the Prospectus you put together. I was impressed with your knowledge of the market and your honesty in discussing issues related to the marketing and sale. There was not one thing that slipped through the cracks. Your staff was also a pleasure to work with.
I am so glad that I chose to be represented by Practice Transition Partners. I have never sold a practice before but I can't imagine that the process could have been any easier than you made it. I was so pleased that my practice sold for the asking price.
If ever I am asked by a colleague who I would recommend to represent them in their sale you will be the only recommendation I will give.
Thanks again for the great assistance you provided.
"I want to thank you for all of your help and support during the sale of my endo practice. Working with you and your staff, Sue and Katie was a pleasure. So much of the weight was lifted off my shoulders and I sincerely appreciate all of your time and effort spent. Should I ever be in the market for a new practice, "Practice Transition Partners" will be the first people I call. Thanks again for making this transition so seamless.
"Rob Stanbery of Practice Transition Partners was successful in not only selling a practice for me but also in locating another practice for me to purchase. Rob's expertise and abilities are of the highest standards. Both of the transactions were facilitated in a very professional and timely manner. I not only consider Rob a man of integrity and abilities but also as my friend. Practice Transition Partners can be trusted to accomplish your desires with the same level of excellence that they did for me."
"Thank you for all your exceptional expertise with the sale of my endo practice. The skill and knowledge you demonstrated during the entire transaction was extremely impressive. Your ability to take care of the business as well as the personal aspects of the sale exceeded my expectations. It was almost unbelievable how fast and smooth the entire transaction took place.
I would highly recommend you and your staff to anyone who is buying or selling a dental practice.
"Thank you, Don and your team at Practice Transition Partners, for helping us during the entire process of the purchase of the dental practice. My wife and I were scared at the beginning however you and your team made the things easy and clear - highly recommended!
Thank you again,"
"Dear Rob and Sue,
Thank you for all the assistance you gave us in the sale of the practice. It is greatly appreciated! You kept it on track, and even though it was a relatively straight-forward sale, your help was invaluable when we hit the bumps in the road. Everything is going well with the transition . . . thank you for the lovely flowers!"
"Practice Transition Partners is undoubtedly the finest company I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Your attention to detail, personalized care, confidentiality, ability to listen and WOW factor set the standard in the practice transition business. I interviewed over a dozen practice brokerages before entrusting you to handle the greatest decision in my career. People who have seen my Practice Prospectus created by you are amazed. I was amazed. Thank you for helping me and others like me realize their dreams. I could not be happier with the transition you made happen."
"P.S. My successor thinks you are the greatest broker too having worked with a couple of other brokers himself."
"To the Practice Transition Partners Team,
Thank you all for the successful transition of my dental practice. Only after it was completed, could one truly appreciate the amount of time, effort and expertise required to accomplish the objective. Your company met or exceeded my expectations in all the key facets of the transition.
Rob, I want to acknowledge not only your expertise in the area of practice transitions, but also your dedication to always being available to answer my questions, or work through the inevitable issues which surface. The consistent timeliness of your responses to my questions can not be over emphasized. The most amazing and gratifying aspect of the sale was your ability to market my practice discreetly from beginning to end. I wanted to believe this could happen, but didn't really expect it. While this probably is not possible in all cases, it was true for my situation. Thank you for the focused intention you brought to the process. While it is true that you were representing me, I was impressed with your consistent sensibility to all parties concerned in whatever negotiation was occurring.
Sue, thank you for always being there to answer my calls and direct me to the right answer. Your kindness and understanding combined with your professionalism was a reassuring and stabilizing force for me throughout this process.
Susan, thank you for your professionalism and timeliness of executing the transition documents. I always felt up to date and informed.
Finally, if anyone were to ask me about my experiences with your company, I would tell them that the professionalism, expertise and knowledge, communication, and dedication to the success of all parties was remarkable, and I would recommend your services highly. I would be happy to make myself available to speak with anyone interested in knowing about your company or my experience."
