I appreciate all that my AmerisourceBergen pharmacy acquisition advisor did to make the selling process so easy. I was impressed with his knowledge, expertise and hands-on approach, as well as the frequent calls he made, just to check in. He was there every step of the way. I could not have done it without all his knowledge and expertise.
