Business Combination and Asset Acquisition [Abstract]  
ACQUISITIONS ACQUISITIONS
The Company accounts for acquisitions in accordance with ASC 805 “Business Combinations.” Assets acquired and liabilities assumed are recorded in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets at their estimated fair values, as of the acquisition date. For all acquisitions, the preliminary allocation of the purchase price was based upon a preliminary valuation, and the Company’s estimates and assumptions are subject to change within the measurement period as valuations are finalized. Any changes to these estimates may have a material impact on the Company’s operating results or financial position. The Company has made adjustments to the preliminary valuations of the acquisition based on valuation analysis prepared by independent third-party valuation consultants. During the year ended December 31, 2021, our measurement period adjustments included reducing intangible assets by $1.0 million and increasing goodwill by the same amount. As a result of these measurement period adjustments, we made an insignificant reduction in amortization expense which is included in the income statement. All acquisition costs are expensed as incurred and recorded in general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations. Acquisition costs were approximately $0.7 million, $0.2 million, and $0.1 million for the years ended December 31, 2021, 2020, and 2019.
