What is the easiest and cheap solution for getting a cheap and easy local phone number for a business?

I have a therapist with multiple offices. Right now he has all the same phone numbers for each office, and I want him to have unique numbers.

I feel like there should be some kind of easy way to do this with like Twilio, or some web based phone thing. . . something not involving the local phone company.

any ideas?
Well in my opinion getting a local number through the local phone company is the best. First they are a data aggregator so your listing will be published different places on the net automatically and second the number from a local phone company uses a traditional prefix that gives credibility to the business. Many third party providers use cell phone like prefixes that may cause uncertainty with a client.

However as soon as the phone is hooked up I port it from the ridiculously expensive phone company to a third party. I have used hosted numbers .com and also ring central for this. Hosted numbers charges $8 for the first number and 5 for each after.
