Practice for Sale.

For a moderately small investment, you can own an established, highly-regarded acupuncture practice that is rurally based with a regional draw.  It fills a unique niche; there are zero other licensed practitioners in a population base of 100,000 plus residents.  As the more rural areas become attractive to city dwellers, this turnkey practice has a solid professional presence and the area is ripe to expand the business into other wellness modalities.  Gain the competitive edge and enjoy low, low, low overhead.

Asking price is $30,000.  No owner financing is available.  Serious interested parties can email me at docbarb928[at]aol[dot]com.
