Director of Practice Finance Consulting
With a total of 22 years in the banking industry, Mr. Thompson has spent the last 10 years focusing on practice finance. He has financed transactions in all private healthcare sectors including dental, medical, and veterinary practices. He has helped with practice acquisition or buy-in, start-up, relocation, expansion, ground-up building projects, renovations, real estate, working capital, equipment, and debt refinancing.
Through his years in healthcare practice financing, Mr. Thompson has found fulfillment in helping others achieve their dreams. Whether he is helping a first time buyer acquire a practice or an established doctor relocate, there is a feeling of professional satisfaction.
However, traditional banking institutions did not allow him to help every client, even if they had a great business. Specific qualifications such as a time-licensed requirement, student loan debt payments, cashflow or liquidity requirements, and more can keep a well-qualified client from fitting into the traditional lending box. Whatever the reason, a perfectly good client is turned away.
With LenDRgroup Consutling, Mr. Thompson now has every possible option to help clients achieve their goals. Here, clients are not tied to one specific set of policies or requirements. A broad, varied lending platform is available so the team can say “YES” to more healthcare practice owners as they work to achieve their professional goals.
Mr. Thompson is an Ohio native who resides in NE Ohio with his wife. Together, they have three beautiful children.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“As a young dentist, I was faced with unexpectedly losing my job with the practice that employed me and I had nowhere to go. My consultant helped me immensely—they assisted in finding me part-time employment and then convinced me to start my own private practice outside of a pretty restrictive covenant. More than that, my consultant helped me get practice financing, too! Over the course of three years, my overall gross revenue increased from $400K to $1.2M with a 37.7% overhead. Thank you!”
Eastern NC Area
“Over the years, my dental practice grossed well over $1M annually and had an overhead somewhere in the 40% range. Partnering with my consultant, I was advised to start funding a cash balance retirement plan—and in turn this saved me thousands of dollars each year because I was able to defer large sums of money and plan for my retirement!”
Eastern NC Area
“I couldn’t give [the group] a higher grade. I have been in practice for 44 years and have traditionally dealt with banks—well, it’s not easy to go this route anymore. Banks don’t look at what I am doing personally [as a dental practitioner], and this makes it hard. You need to have an agent who will represent you and your interests. [LenDRGroup Consulting] understands the broader picture, they were so supportive, and returned calls promptly. They worked hard for me—and that’s hard to find these days.”
“I was faced with a routine state sales and use tax audit at my OB/GYN practice. The auditor wanted to tax the practice’s sale and distribution of Intrauterine Devices (IUDs) as a taxable item. I worked with my consultant to handle this issue and after several months, the auditor realized their folly. In the end, my practice prevailed and thousands of dollars in sales tax was saved!”
Eastern NC Area
“I worked with my consultant to identify and begin using an outside billing company to handle patient receivables. It was a great strategy as it improved cash flow from in-house staff by 50% and collected on old receivables that I had thought were long past the point of recovery.”
Eastern NC Area
“My wife and I really appreciate all of your help through this process. Not the smoothest from our end but indeed you guys really guided us through and made the process easy to navigate. We also really appreciate your assistance with identifying other practices, even though it was not even plan B for us.
We will always refer your services to others and use you guys for any future needs for us.”
