Dollar Bank Private Banking Offers Expertise to Medical Clients

Updated on September 26, 2012

Dollar Bank’s Private Banking division has years of experience fulfilling the banking needs of individual physicians and medical practices.  Client relationships at Dollar Bank are unique in today’s banking world because the Private Banking Officer helps the physician and practice properly structure debt, underwrites and closes the loans and actively manages the relationship.

“We are the client’s bank,” said Robert Collins, Private Banking Vice President.  “We take the holistic approach with our client’s financial needs.  Whether they have a question regarding deposit or loan products, personal or business, they only need to make one phone call, to their personal Private Banking Officer.  We’ll handle all the details and.”

Highest level of service.

Each client is provided with an experienced and knowledgeable Private Banking Officer who can manage the full personal and business banking relationship from deposits to leasing to loans.  Private Banking clients with business needs can take advantage of Dollar Bank experts in corporate and real estate lending, leasing and treasury management. The officer will act as a financial concierge, introducing the expertise clients need and staying involved every step of the way.

If there is already a financial team in place, Dollar Bank’s Private Banking Officer works with the physician’s team of trusted advisors including financial planners, stockbrokers, accountants and attorneys.  “Dollar Bank is not in competition with financial planners, lawyers, accountants or any other advisor, so our officer can complement their services to meet the physician’s goals. Nor are we in the business of generating fees for selling mutual funds, trusts or insurances.  Our goal is to provide deposit and loan products and banking services that enhance the physician’s strategies developed by his or her trusted advisors,”  stated Daniel Gozzard, Private Banking Vice President.

When meeting with clients, officers will meet with them at a time and place convenient to their schedule or at one of the five Private Banking Offices in Western Pennsylvania.  Carol Neyland, Private Banking Vice President, especially likes working with female physicians to achieve their financial goals. Neyland is cognizant of the fact that not only are they accomplished professionals, but they are also wives, mothers and daughters.  These women juggle the demands of family life while taking care of their patients and running demanding practices.

“With their hectic schedules, I make myself available whenever it’s convenient for them,”  Neyland said.  “I’ve met some doctors on their break outside of the ER, on weekends, evenings or even at their child’s soccer game.”

Unique account privileges.

Dollar Bank can provide unique account privileges for its Private Banking clients, including higher credit limits on credit cards as well as different loan underwriting standards than a typical retail bank.  Other collateral such as CDs, life insurance and commercial and investment real estate can be used to obtain financing.  Below are types of financing and products Dollar Bank Private Banking offers to medical professionals and other clients.

  • Ambulatory Surgery Centers Financing
