Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of San Diego Sports Acupuncture, a premier acupuncture clinic that focuses on the treatment of injuries related to sports, work, aging, postural misalignment, and improper movement patterns.


For what projects/services did your company hire Tragic Media?

We needed web design.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a dynamic online presence for my acupuncture clinic and have one of the best-looking websites in the industry.


How did you select this vendor?

Richard (Owner, Tragic Media) has been a good friend of mine since we were at The University of California together. It was an extremely small project compared to what Tragic Media normally tackles. I don't think they would take on a project this size any longer, but since I'm friends with the owner, he was willing to help me out.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They designed our website and have refreshed it once. Richard was flexible on costs with me for the first iteration, back when I was just starting my acupuncture practice. After I got the business going, I paid him for the second iteration, which was well worth it. Tragic delivered on all fronts and also took their time working on the creative aspect to help me get exactly what I wanted when I was unable to really articulate my needs.

The website has approximately 10 pages, multiple calls to action, integration with my scheduling program, and a blog that I can update. Aside from building the actual website, they helped me interface with the developers so they could translate my ideas into something they could work with. I'm very happy with the end result.

What was the team composition?

Richard chose and managed the team for me for the entirety of the project.


Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Since hiring Tragic Media to build my website, my acupuncture clinic has become one of the most successful practices in an already very saturated environment. I'm extremely proud of what they've helped me build and the livelihood it has provided for me for the past six years.

They've done a phenomenal job and are ready to update the website yet again, though several time constraints on my part have prevented me from moving forward with it.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I communicated directly with Richard and he would interface with the team. It felt extremely efficient and well managed on my end.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by the level of customization in their work. Tragic Media can make exactly what you want and will work hard to deliver on every detail and aspect until you’re satisfied. I know for a fact that they coded everything from scratch. They even built tools so that I could manage the website without having to know anything about programming.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

Nothing comes to mind. They went the extra mile every step of the way.
