The LBA Group is recognized as the leading healthcare CPA and consulting services firm in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida. Approximately 40% of the firm’s client base is healthcare related and we serve more than 700 physicians and physician groups in Northeast Florida.

We pride ourselves on providing first-class traditional accounting services to these clients, such as:

  • Tax compliance and proactive planning strategies
  • Merger and acquisition strategies
  • Asset protection
  • Internal controls for practices
  • Physician compensation and employment agreements
  • Bookkeeping services including support for QuickBooks® and other accounting software

In addition to these traditional services, we have emphasized providing management consulting and planning services above and beyond what is normally provided by a traditional CPA firm.
