“Great service the best”
“Pat Taft is just wonderful to work with. She seems very professional and obviously knows her craft. I was referred to her by a friend who feels the same.”
“It had been 20+ years since I sought help for my hearing issues. I had had hearing aids before, but probably wore them only a dozen times as they were uncomfortable and I still had difficulty hearing in many situations. Since I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable with not being able to hear well, I sought help. My journey took me to Professional Speech & Hearing and Pat Taft. Pat was able to assess the myriad of issues I had and she patiently and professionally helped me through all of them. She has opened a world of hearing for me and I am more active and involved in social settings. I am beyond grateful. Additionally, all of the staff at Professional Speech & Hearing are always polite, respectful and professional. ”
