|History of the Practice|
Was a satellite clinic 3 mornings a week when I purchased it in 1997. Gross has tripled in the time since then, even though I have decreased hours from my initial 6 days a week and full on call to 4 days a week and no on call. Calais is a small town of about 3000 right across the river from St Stephen in Canada. We are just north of the 45th parallel(about the same as the little finger in Michigan. Not nearly as far north as it looks on the usual map projection). Our clientele consists of both U.S and Canadian citizens often coming as far away as an hours drive.
|What makes this practice special/Major selling points|
Being a small town, many of the usual big city perks are missing. But so is the traffic, noise, crowding, etc. that comes with it. Outdoor recreational activities abound. We moved here specifically to get away from too many people, to be in a place where we could enjoy the outdoors whenever we wanted. A wildlife refuge is just outside the city. Baxter State Park and Acadia National park are each a couple of hours away. The Appalachian Trail runs through the state and ends on Mount Katahdin. Miles and miles of atv/snowmobile trails exist if that is something you like.
|What might the next owner need to improve in this practice?|
The building can be bought outright or leased depending on your preference. Some repairs are needed and could be deducted from the cost of the building. My idea is to make the cost of the building fairly low. There are two apartments above the clinic, both presently rented(one to my head tech). The attic could be converted to another one, probably(original owner was considering doing that before I bought it).
