Healthcare Professional

you-centric services

Private Client Services offers accounting, tax and advisory services customized for the way you and your practice create value and build wealth.

Private Client Services focuses on the combination of the entities and the individual recognizing the ultimate goal of personal wealth. Our integration of services takes our comprehensive understanding of your needs and how they evolve over time as the business grows and evolves and the individual plans for wealth accumulation and transfer. This integrated approach is one that is proactive, anticipating events instead of reacting to them all the while look for ways to mitigate risk, minimize tax exposure and build wealth.


Tax Planning and Compliance

Our services include tax planning for physicians along with their practices. As your practice may represent a significant part of your income and investment portfolio this calls for integrated practice and personal tax strategies, to grow wealth more effectively.

Integrated practice and personal tax strategies

You may also have substantial investments in enterprises you do not directly control, making a proactive stance toward changing legislative, regulatory and market conditions essential to managing future tax liability and risk.  Global investments, partnerships, family ownership, and your estate planning goals add additional variables and complications. We consider all of these issues as part of wealth preservation.

Accounting Services and Solutions

Core accounting services for physicians are part of our experience-based, integrated approach to top- and bottom-line growth.  These services are particularly timely as the country’s healthcare system changes in response to the Affordable Healthcare Act and physicians move to new revenue and reimbursement models.

Accounting services to optimize practice revenues

We have extensive experience analyzing physician practices and improving both accounting and revenue performance.  These comprehensive evaluations includes:

  • ICD-10 implementation
  • Managed care assessment and contracting
  • Case management consulting
  • Revenue cycle improvement optimization
  • Clinical coding and documentation assessment and improvement

Practice Strategy, Management and Planning for Physicians

We offer practice strategies for physicians from the beginning to the end of their careers. Private Client Services gives you a single point of contact for a dedicated group of professionals who work across multiple service lines — advisors who can integrate your personal and practice objectives, help you accumulate wealth, support the sale/transition of your practice and ultimately embark on retirement.

Toward a successful exit

We can help you develop operating plans, implement operational improvements and define performance improvement metrics (if we handle your practice accounting, we can manage its accounting systems and processes, including bookkeeping, payroll services, tax preparation, and financial statement preparation). Our practice services for physicians span their careers and include the following:

  • Repayment of student loans
  • Buying into a practice
  • Strategic planning
  • Practice valuations
  • Practice transition to successor owners

Retirement Planning

Retirement planning for high net worth individuals has multiple objectives, but one is fundamental — to ensure sufficient income for future needs while maintaining an existing lifestyle for an indeterminate number of years.

In our experience, wealthy clients have the same basic concerns as anyone considering retirement.  However, retirement planning for high net worth individuals demands more sophisticated evaluations and management, particularly with a high level of income consumption. 

Low management fees

We work with our colleagues at DHG Wealth Advisors to ensure that your retirement portfolio is governed by key strategies — asset-class diversification to mitigate risk, dampen volatility and allow for cash flow.
