About Us

At Strategic Medical Brokers, we know it’s not “about us.” It is about you, your needs, and your expectations.

Shaun F. Rudgear - Certified Business Intermediary / Commercial Real Estate Advisor

Shaun F. Rudgear, CBI, CBB

Certified Business Intermediary / Commercial Real Estate Advisor

For more than 10 years, I co-owned and operated Endocrinology, Diabetes & Longevity Center of Arizona, which grew to include an integrative weight loss clinic, medispa, and two medical office buildings in the Greater Phoenix area. Recently, I sold my business interests in the related medical practices.

As a result of this sales process, I witnessed firsthand the challenges and pitfalls facing physicians and healthcare business owners when selling their healthcare business. Many healthcare business owners are unaware of the significant tax, accounting, succession planning, and legal issues that arise throughout the sales process.

I have the background, skills, education, and determination that make me especially qualified to value and market medical practices, which include:

  • Certified Business Broker
  • Certified Business Intermediary
  • Medical Practice Industry Expert (Business Brokerage Press)
  • Certified Negotiation Expert
  • Licensed Real Estate Broker since 1991
  • Member of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA).
  • President (incoming) of the Arizona Business Brokers Association (AZBBA)
  • Member of the Texas Business Brokers Association (TABB)
  • Member of the Medical Group Management Association
  • Member of the National Society of Certified Healthcare Business Consultants
  • Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration (Real Estate)
  • Over 20 years of Sales and Marketing experience.
  • Founder and operator of several medical businesses

Buying or selling a medical practice is likely to be the most important personal and financial decision of your life. Maybe you’ve built a successful practice, but you don’t have a transition plan. Or perhaps you’re looking to buy a practice, but you want to make sure you’re making the best decision. We are here to make the process easier and less stressful by lending our expertise and guidance, but you are still in control and ultimately make the decisions. We understand the confidentiality, complexity, and emotional nature of this transaction. It is important to us that you remain informed and an integral part of the process.

Serving the healthcare industry, we are experts in medical practice business brokerage, medical practice valuation, medical practice performance consulting, pre-transaction planning, and transition consulting. We can assist with medical practice sales across the United States.

When you call us, you’ll always reach an individual agent and will never speak with an automated service. Creative solutions and custom structures are what we do best. It avoids frustration and saves time and money. Just like you have spent years perfecting your profession, we have done the same. You can rely on the experts at Strategic Medical Brokers to help you navigate your future.

Connecting a Buyer and Seller

Connecting a buyer and seller requires expertise in matchmaking and building trusting relationships. It is of utmost importance to find the right buyer.

We’re ready to move when we come across a prospect that might be a good fit to purchase your practice.

Honesty, integrity, and personal attention are our mantras.

You can see from our countless client testimonials that our expertise, experience, and personal service make us unique in the industry. This is not just a business transaction to us; this is the start of a new chapter of your life. Our services don’t end with the sale, and we hope you find that we are an invaluable resource.
