Jody's Favorite Sound Memory

There have been endless memories in the 4 year (plus) journey of building Sound, but there is one memory that always pops in my mind when I think of the days approaching the grand opening of our clinic.

Melissa and I were busy moving furniture, finalizing equipment, and ensuring our tests and materials were all purchased and ready to go for January 2, 2015, our opening day. We had also set up our website, and placed a google phone number on the site, as we waited for Comcast to set up our permanent phone number here at Sound. As we were walking back from lunch both of our cell phones began to ring. We tucked into our office building (not even making it into our clinic doors) excited to answer our very first phone call (and patient) at our clinic!

The phone has rung MANY more times after that day, but I’ll always remember the excitement of this first call.
