PTCOA Freeway ASC, a limited liability company, spent $3.4 million to buy an Arkansas Surgery & Endoscopy Center building in Little Rock last month.
PTCOA stands for Pain Treatment Centers of America.
Dr. Meraj Siddiqui and Dr. Ronald Tilley are co-managers of PTCOA Freeway ASC LLC. They also are cofounders of Pain Treatment Centers of America.
David Smith is an officer of the limited liability company, which is at 8907 Kanis Road Suite 400 in Little Rock.
The building, constructed in 1999, is at 9 Freeway Drive near South Rodney Parham Road and West 12th Street.
The property, with an almost 11,400-square-foot building and more than 1.5 acres, last appraised at $2.3 million. About 65 percent of the building is an outpatient surgical center and 35 percent is office space.
PTCOA Freeway ASC LLC borrowed $2.8 million from First Community Bank in Batesville to finance the purchase. The mortgage matures in 2025.
A spokesman with Pain Treatment Centers did not return a phone call seeking comment.
Pain Treatment Centers of America have about 10 offices in Arkansas, including in Batesville, Bentonville, Conway, Little Rock, North Little Rock, Searcy, White Hall and Mountain Home.

The utility plans to build a new distribution substation and interconnection to the transmission line, said Kerri Case, an Entergy spokesman.
Entergy is planning to build similar substations in other parts of the state.
The utility is not required to get approval for land acquisitions from the Arkansas Public Service Commission, Case said.

The seller was Otter Creek Land Co.

The new owner plans to resell the property, said a spokesman for N&M Davis, who asked not to be identified.
"We're looking for a buyer right now," the spokesman said.
About 165 acres of the property has 2-year-old pine trees growing on it, the spokesman said. The new owner is willing to divide the land into smaller tracts.
