Listen in as David chats with facial plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Dayan and MedSpa Partners (MSP) CEO Dominic Mazzone. They discuss the consolidation in medicine in general and aesthetics in particular and delve into why Steven chose to sell his practice to MSP.

David begins the conversation by asking both Steven and Dominic about their upbringings and career paths.  Steven explains how his practice grew over the decades with his use of research and “guerilla marketing,” and when selling the practice first appeared on his radar.

Steven shares what he learned going down the road with three other firms to the letter of intent (LOI) stage before finally agreeing to work with Dominic’s firm.  Dominic then addresses the areas that a physician should look for when choosing a platform, the key questions he asks potential physician partners, and why integration is crucial – not just consolidation.

Steven the gives David his perspective, including why he chose MSP and how he continues to see MSP as different than other platforms when he speaks with colleagues.

Dominic tells listeners what his firm looks for in a potential practice for acquisition -- including financial and non-financial elements – and why he sees aesthetics as different from non-cosmetic specialties.

David concludes with asking Steven to give his best pearls of advice for fellow physicians considering a sale.
