I am intending to sell my thriving private rheumatology practice in Toowoomba within the next 5 years. The new owner would walk into a vibrant, fully functioning practice averting all the costly problems involved in setting up such a business from scratch.
There is an established extensive referral base with ongoing high demand for rheumatological services. My lovely receptionists would be happy to stay on throughout the transition period and beyond if needed.
The practice is located in the heart of beautiful Toowoomba, close to all three hospitals in beautifully refurbished rooms with radiology and pathology services nearby. It is a perfect community in which to raise a young family with superb schools, little traffic, a warm and friendly community but with also an active edgy art scene (First Coat Toowoomba), many new trendy cafés and roof top bars. The cost of the practice would be structured in a tax-effective manner so that I am sure an attractive purchase price could be reached. Please feel free to email me or phone me if you would like further details. You may also wish to visit my website www.drsonjanagel.com. Sonja Nagel. Ph 0418 718 273.
