Testimonials from Satisfied Patients

“For Some time, I’ve been aware that my hearing was not as sharp as it should be. A friend suggested that I see Audiologist Patricia Taft, MS who had helped her husband with his hearing loss.

After asking some initial questions, Ms. Taft gave me a hearing test, which was much more thorough and detailed than any I’d previously experienced.

After the test, Ms. Taft entered the data into a computer program and analyzed my hearing capabilities. She explained the results clearly so that I understood what I was seeing on the computer screen.

It was immediately obvious that Ms. Taft has great knowledge, experience, and expertise in her field and is focused on achieving the best possible results for her patients. She is easy to talk to and puts you at ease right away.

During the next visit, Ms. Taft fitted me with state of the art hearing aids, and I am now trying them out for a week. So far, I am thrilled with them. I was shocked to realize how many sounds I was NOT hearing before. For example, driving home, I heard the clicking of the turn signal for the first time.

I was also thrilled to listen to music on my IPhone that was no longer too loud and did not disturb anyone else. I could hear ALL the notes! As a nature lover I discovered more sounds I’d missed of birds and wildlife. Thanks to my audiologist, Ms. Taft and to the new technology, I am enjoying a renaissance of sound in my life!”

“I was one of those individuals that firmly believed I would never wear a hearing aid. It was hard for me to admit my (obvious) hearing loss and the impact of it. In a professional and caring manner, Ms. Taft persuaded me to try a hearing aid. I have been very surprised that it has been such a great benefit. I am very thankful for her care, concern and assistance.”
~ Jack T.
“Pat is very thorough in explaining & showing how to use new technology.”
~ Dixon P. Wegner
"I have been a hearing aid user for more than 8 years with Professional Speech and Hearing Specialists. For the last two weeks I have ben wearing your Oticon More aids. I want to express my thanks and let you know how they have changed my life.

Certainly, the Oticon aids I have used before have given me improved hearing and my wife's and my life easier. But, with these new Oticon More aids, my hearing has improved a minimum of 30 to 40%. How?

1. Construction began on the back of our house to install a screened patio. I was in the family room and heard clearly the tools used to secure the screen to the concrete. It was as if I was with the crew on the porch securing the screen; I could hear them all with crystal clarity.

2.My Oticon More has eliminated the background noise that was so distracting when trying to join in with a normal conversation with friends. The aid seemingly adjusts to the environment that is around me and makes it easier for me to hear in a crowd. What a wonderful gift!

3.My TV watching has improved especially with the movies with a lot of background music that seems to cover the actor's words. Now if I choose, I can even watch TV without streaming via Bluetooth.

4.Lastly my wife has noticed the improvement in my hearing and that is an improvement to any relationship during this pandemic time we are experiencing. Often, she is surprised that I heard what she has said whereas before she would have to repeat her comments. She is happy and of course so am I.

I do not often write reviews or comment to the companies of products I buy or use. But this is an exception. Your company has produced a superior product for the hearing impaired.

I thank my Clinical Audiologist, Patricia Taft, for introducing me to the Oticon More. And again, send my sincerest appreciation to the Oticon More personnel for their dedication to making tremendous improvements to help the hearing-impaired world.”

"Dr. Rehse, Your adjustment of the Widex hearing aids is very good. I can now make out all the words on television shows and can discern what people say behind their Covid masks. It feels great to be real again.”
"Dawn makes this one of my favorite appointments. She is so professional and friendly that I'm completely at ease.”
~ Evelyn M.

"I used to think that I was a happy deaf person. I lost my hearing over a long period of time, and didn’t notice that the only people suffering were my family members. I had the volume on the TV so high they could not enjoy watching it with me. Conversations with me asking, “What did you say?” were the norm. My wife finally convinced me to have my hearing checked. Ms. Taft tested my hearing and helped me select the best solution for my particular hearing needs. Her professional treatment and knowledge of hearing loss solutions gave me the confidence to give hearing aids a chance. Since being fitted and having my hearing aids programmed to my specific loss, I am amazed at what I have been missing. I am now a much happier hearing person. Now my wife asks me to turn up the TV. Ms. Taft also assisted me with my TV, home telephone, cellphone, and remote adjustment of my hearing aids for different hearing situations (like the movie theatre and restaurants.) The commitment of Ms. Taft and her office staff to my hearing needs has truly improved my life. Thank all of you.”
~ Richard & Terry Gilbert
"From beginning to end of my time with Tabitha, I found her to be very helpful in explaining exactly what was wrong with my left aide, what she could do for me, how long it would take, and the cost. Every facet of my time was well spent, and I came away knowing that I was in very good hands, that she and the company she represents are professionals, care about their clients, and have the clients\' needs topmost in their minds. I will most surely want her to be my go-to person for any problems or needs with my hearing.”
