Experience counts! When evaluating an appraiser or broker for your healthcare practice, look deeply into the individual's background for credentials, and for their practical experience in the field. New, inexperienced individuals buy -or become employed by- long-standing broker/appraiser offices, then claim the firm's decades-long experience as their own in their marketing. Make sure the individual you interview will be the same one handling your account, not delegated to an underling-in-training. New credential-mill "associations" frequently spring up then fade away, so don't just trust an "association logo" on a website. If you are in a state that requires licensing to appraise, broker or even "consult" on a value, sale or buy-in (most notably California, Florida and Colorado), ask to see their state-specific license and personal CV, or look it up online. Licensure counts, just like in medicine. Transactions almost all have tax-return impact for both parties, so make sure your appraiser is a Qualified Appraiser by IRS Standards so you can use your appraisal with your tax return and in case of IRS audit of either party in the future.

"AMA ConsultingLink®, part of the American Medical Association, carefully screened and chose the top healthcare consultants in the country -- advisors who have what it takes to help your practice thrive in today's constantly changing healthcare environment." They did their homework to make your selection process hassle-free. We are proud to have been a member of the AMA ConsultingLink® network from 1993 until closure of the program in 2005.
To be included in the American Academy of Family Physicians' Network of Consultants (FP-Assist®), consultants were required to undergo an extensive application and peer review process. Their credentials -- education, training and experience -- were carefully evaluated. This ensures that they were qualified to provide you with the services you request, and, most importantly, understand the unique needs of family physicians. We are pleased to have been among the few firms in the nation accepted by AAFP's FP-Assist® for family practice consulting, appraisal and brokerage. PMM was an original Founding Member and participant and on faculty until the cessation of the program in 2010.
"Medical Economics Editorial Consultants are the experts in medical practice that you see listed in the front of each issue. Long before a consultant is invited to join ME's consultant panel, they've established solid working relationships with ME's editors. Editors call upon them when researching articles; send them pre-publication copies of articles for their review inviting comments and corrections to make sure ME has gotten the facts straight; and occasionally publish articles that they've bylined." ME is confident that we know our stuff; and has published numerous cover-articles authored.
