20/20 Money Episode # 195 – A deep dive into practice transitions with Dr. Mick Kling, OD (Part 1)

August 1, 2022

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Mick Kling, OD. In this two-part conversation with Mick, he and I have a deep and well-rounded discussion on all things related to practice transitions. We talk about practice transitions from both the buyer’s and seller’s perspective and talk about the entire life cycle of the process.

Today’s episode is Part 1, and we cover information related to the beginning stages of buying a practice. We talk about the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of a buyer, how to find practices for sale, and we explore the due diligence process in detail.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center.
