We had a great experience with Live Oak Bank.  They are the ONLY bank that actually DID what they said they were going to do! Lots of banks made promises – none were delivered. Live Oak believed in our small business.

They always provided quick responses to all of our questions and guided us through the loan process. This was our first time building and we were actually encouraged to ask questions.

Financing my practice with Live Oak Bank was a positive experience. The entire lending team worked as a cohesive unit and streamlined the loan process, which was imperative given my schedule. I enjoyed developing a relationship with Mike, and it was good knowing that he trusted my ability to be successful in my new business endeavor. We are already working on my second loan.

I have nothing but good things to say about the friendly staff at Live Oak Bank.  When I started my practice, I had enormous financial requirements, and they were able to help me accomplish those goals with absolute ease.

Live Oak Bank announces its expansion into the Medical Profession

By |February 4th, 2013|

Tuesday, February 5, 2013 – Wilmington, NC – Since 2007, Live Oak Bank has provided practice financing for dentists and veterinarians across the country. The bank is now extending its scope to include medical professionals. While this industry is highly competitive, Live Oak has found their niche.

Currently, medical professionals who need financing for ground-up construction projects, commercial real estate, major renovations or who want to leave their leasehold space to purchase a freestanding practice, will likely have a difficult time finding financing. Enter Live Oak Bank.

“In my years of lending to the healthcare industry, I have seen a void in financing for medical professionals, especially those who need funding for construction projects,” stated Keith Merklin, General Manager at Live Oak Bank. “Live Oak is here to fill that void. We recognized that this is an underserved group, and we want to help them achieve their career goals of practice ownership.”

“Since our inception, Live Oak Bank has strived to provide financing to industries that lack an existing, desirable alternative. When we enter the industry, we fully immerse ourselves in order to understand the challenges our borrowers face regarding their business,” stated Chip Mahan, Chief Executive Officer for Live Oak Bank. “Our knowledge, paired with our unsurpassed customer service and customized financing options, allows us to distinguish ourselves from the other banks that serve each industry. We look forward to this new endeavor.”
