Ed Guiducci was instrumental in lease negotiations with our more than difficult landlord, more patient than words can convey, always willing to listen to me in times of utter panic. He was extremely helpful in our partnership agreement, explaining details without tiring, solving any issue that needed to be addressed. Ed is so knowledgeable in practice management, always willing AND able to help with advice and referral to other professionals.

I have worked with Ed Guiducci for years. What I like about Ed's style is he strives for a win-win approach in every negotiation. The deal has to work for the buyer, seller, and practice to be successful.

We had the pleasure of working with Ed Guiducci during a very intense practice and real estate purchase. Ed provided sound and expert advice in addressing aspects both known and unknown throughout the entire process and, where appropriate, coordinated his efforts with our real estate attorney.
Although geographically placed on opposite sides of the country (we are located in Pennsylvania), this was never an issue. His response was consistently prompt even on urgent issues. Understanding these types of transactions are stressful, knowing that Ed always had our best interests in mind added a level of comfort that was needed. He was one of the more pleasurable aspects of the entire process and a resource we highly recommend to anyone even contemplating such an endeavor."

This note is a much heartfelt thank you for your unequaled assistance in the recent sale of our practice. We have also included below a more detailed perspective on how your office marketed and sold our practice. This information might be of interest to prospective clients and please share any or all of this information with any interested parties.
Our practice was not the typical veterinary facility. We were a large central hospital (15,000 sq. ft.) and three full service satellite facilities. The central hospital consisted of a Wellness Clinic, 24 Hour Emergency/Critical Care Facility and a Specialty Practice (Surgery and Internal Medicine). Each satellite facility was a two full time equivalent Doctor practice. Our total case load was over 50,000 patient visits per year and we employed 18 veterinarians as well as 110 lay staff.
The sale of such a large practice is not an overnight event. We worked with you for several years prior to the ultimate sale. What impressed us when we first started working together was your knowledge of the veterinary market place. When you initially reviewed the financial and organization data for our practice you identified weak areas that needed improvements. You offered suggestions and pointed us in the right direction to make the appropriate changes. As the actual sale came closer, your assistance in negotiating with the various practice consolidators was invaluable. You quickly identified key issues that were vital to our interests and skillfully worked to make sure these issues were favorably resolved for us. You approached the sale process with candor and integrity which made us feel comfortable as we moved forward. We would most strongly recommend you and your office to any prospective veterinary practice owner who is interested in selling their hospital. You made the sale of our practice a very positive and rewarding experience.
