Clients who list practices with PPC or request practice appraisals receive detailed valuation reports that include a site visit to verify the practice’s ability to deliver and transfer good will. Potential buyers receive notifications of listings that match their interest profile on a regular basis.

PPC has a strong working relationship with several well-known practice acquisition lenders and will facilitate the lending process from beginning acquisition through to practice closing. Other services provided by PPC include associate buy-in, annual practice valuation, and equity development planning for practicing veterinarians.Dr. Baxley received his Bachelor of Science degree from Clemson University in 1981.
