“My favorite aspect of Sound Advice Hearing Doctors is two part. First, I love when patients share their success stories with us. Second, I love working with the team we have in place exploring methods of how we can be even better.”
Dr. Vesely grew up in Cleveland, Ohio before moving to Searcy, Arkansas where he attended college. During his tenure at Harding University Brian took time to study abroad in Athens, Greece. Eventually, he moved to the Ozarks where he decided to stay. Brian’s beautiful wife Ashley used to work with him at the Springfield location, but has since retired to take care of their children, Kori, Finley & Grant.
Brian is very active with his church family, and when he is not working or spending time with family you can usually find him in the woods hunting or on the lake fishing.
