The office was orderly and welcoming, with coffee available. Doctor Rehse was so informative that I didn't even have any questions for her once we were finished. I have never been to a healthcare office that put so much effort into making sure I knew and understood my results. I highly recommend visiting Dr. Rehse for any hearing concerns!"

"The audiologists at Professional Speech and Hearing are the best ever. If I ever have a problem with my hearing aids, I am seen quickly to get the issue resolved. We go to have check ups every four months, as long as our hearing aids are under warranty, we are not charged for the tweaks and adjustments. I cannot recommend them highly enough."

"I had been going to Pat Taft for the past ten years and always received excellent care throughout that time. Late last year I moved from the area and shortly after the move a wire for my right hearing aid broke. I tried and could not find a place locally to repair it and ended up calling Pat\'s office to see what could be done. When I spoke to Pat I reminded her that I no longer lived in the area and she said\ Harry, once your my patient, you are always my patient.\ We tried to identify the type of part I needed, but I was unsuccessful in doing so. I thought I would have to spend day traveling to Ocala and back to get it repaired. Shortly after that call Pat called me back with the name and address of a local repair facility only a few miles from my residence. I had my hearing aid repaired within an hour and all Pat got from it was the satisfaction of getting me help. That\'s my idea of a dedicated professional and that\'s what you get from Patricia Taft and the staff at Professional Speech and Hearing. "

"I am 55 years old and have diminished hearing. For years I have struggled to hear in group environments, rooms with poor acoustics, and even around the dinner table with my family. My hearing loss was effecting me in ways that I wasn't aware of. After my recent hearing evaluation with Ms. Pat, she informed me a new technology had arrived and she described it as a technology she had only dreamed about for her entire career. She fit me with a pair of Oticon hearing aids and my life instantly changed! Sitting in her office I could actually hear my wife speaking in hushed tones! I didn't have to fake it (lol)! We all were amazed! We went outside and it seemed a new world to me. The Oticon's bring out speech while limiting other noises. They Bluetooth to my phone and are highly programmable. A separate unit for your TV can be purchased, which allows Bluetooth to the TV. Amazing! I can honestly say that I can't wait to put my hearing aids in each morning. Ms. Pat said she had never heard a patient say that before! I love my hearing aids! Thanks Ms. Pat and Professional Speech & Hearing!"

"My husband and I have been patients at Professional Speech and Hearing for about four years. Improved capability to hear, dramatically improves one’s quality of life. It can take time to adjust hearing aids to their optimum for the user. The audiologists at PSH always spend the time to make the appropriate adjustments to ensure that our hearing aids are at the optimum for us. I believe that we should celebrate our hearing aids and should be delighted with the improvement i A number of years ago a geriatric specialist (MD) told me that hearing loss exacerbated dementia; if one is not hearing well, the neurons in the brain are not firing properly. It can take time to adjust hearing aids to their optimum for the user. The audiologists at PSH always spend the time to make the appropriate adjustments to ensure that our hearing aids are at the optimum for us. I believe that we should celebrate our hearing aids and should be delighted with the improvements in our hearing which improves our quality of life. I could write more about not only how fortunate we are to be able to have hearing aids, but also about the audiologists at PSH, their outstanding knowledge, their patience, and professionalism, instead I will conclude by saying: If I could wave a magic wand over all audiologists, they would become exactly like Pat Taft and the other audiologists at PSH, but since I can’t, I very highly recommend using Professional Speech and Hearing before any other audiologists."

"I am so glad I went to Professional Speech and Hearing Specialists, especially after disappointing results at two other local offices. Tabatha McCallum was my Dr., and she is very knowledgable and professional. She listened to me regarding my needs, and together we were able to fulfill those needs. My existing aides needed upgrading, and thankfully I now have a huge improvement in my hearing. Plus, the office staff is on top of my needs, very friendly, and definitely adhere to current CDC requirements. Call them for an appointment...you won’t be sorry!"

"I have been going to Professional Speech & Hearing Specialists since moving to Ocala Florida 4 years ago. Every visit has been professional, and pleasant. My Audiologist; Danielle Rosser, always takes the time to throughly evaluate my Hearing exam every year. She always takes time for my questions and concerns. I had asked her to keep me informed when new products become available, which she promptly does. Today I just received my new Hearing Aids; Ear Q, F Series and was somewhat emotional because even though I loved my previous pairs; this is the first time since before I started losing my hearing more than 30 years ago, that I am Hearing like I was in my twenties. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Professional Speech & Hearing Specialists."

"We have been pleased with the professionalism and service at Professional Speech and Hearing for many years. My husband has profound hearing loss which is a great issue for a professional piano player. Dr. Tabatha McCallum has been a tremendous help in ensuring Lenny has the best hearing device for him. She recently told of us of a new device using advanced technology that she believed would be good for Lenny. He was hesitant to spend the money, but decided to go to office for a demo. It was evident quickly that the new device with advanced technology was a major improvement.We highly recommend Dr. McCallum for help with any hearing issues."

"I highly recommend Professional Speech and Hearing for assessing and improving hearing health. I've been a patient under Tabatha McCallum since 2014, and she, along with the other office staff, have always been very conscientious and caring about my hearing.Mrs. McCallum has a genuine passion to assist her patients to hear the very best they can. She worked with me to continue to use my existing hearing aid until my loss exceeded the limits of the technology my former aid provided. Now, I'm wearing aids in both ears, and the difference is astounding. She made the process easy."

"Pat Taft and her staff at Professional Speech and Hearing, to put it simply, blew my socks off! Not that I was ACTUALLY wearing socks, but the time Pat took to care for my husband, Ted, and me recently was nothing short of amazing. That, plus her professionalism, technical expertise and experience, as well as her courtesy, kindness, and friendly sense of humor; well, I couldn't have asked for more! My husband, Ted, and I relocated to Ocala from the Washington, D.C. area subu I needn't have feared one iota when it came to a hearing specialist! I've never had a more thorough hearing exam, nor more advanced technology utilized in both Ted's and my hearing analyses. Pat's office is not only more advanced in terms of how they measure one's hearing acuity than the one I came from up north, but she spends more careful time, and she is more thoughtful, friendly, and considerate than anyone in ANY professional discipline! Thank you, Pat, for not only improving my hearing and making my overall life experience more pleasurable as a result, but for becoming a new friend and health-care partner for life! Bobbi Simmons"

"Professional Speech and Hearing was recommended to me nearly twenty years ago, and I have never regretted following that recommendation..Patricia Taft and her staff are consumate professionals in every sense of the term. Pat has now seen me through three sets of hearing aids, and I have nothing but good to say. She listens to patient's concerns, she has an encyclopedic knowledge of what specific hearing aids can and cannot do, and she is able in certain cases to make hearing aids to perform above and beyond.I have recommended Professional Speech and Hearing to many people who have asked about my hearing aids, and I will continue to give an unqualified recommendation about their caring attitude, professional skill and unwavering attention to detail. They are simply the best, bar none."

"I respect the knowledge behind the Professional Hearing & Speech staff. I originally started off with them years ago. When it came time to replace my hearing aid, I tried another place trying to save a few dollars. I ended up returning the hearing aid and getting my money back. The store didn’t know what I was talking about with the jargon I was educated with from Dr. McCallum. They kept telling me what the hearing machine was saying I needed and not listening to my needs. What a BIG mistake and waste of time...all to save a few bucks! I returned to Professional Hearing & Speech and ordered my new device and boy, am I overjoyed I did!!! I can’t say enough about my satisfaction. My hearing aid does things I never thought possible and was well worth every penny spent on it. If you’re trying to make a decision, give Professional Speech & Hearing a try. Hearing the right way is a fantastic thing!"

"I met a retired audiologist and in discussions about my hearing losses due to my past work environment and age ( I am 74 ), he pointed out that it was very important to get a thorough evaluation of my specific needs rather than just hearing aids that produced higher volumes. He strongly recommended Dr. Rosier at PSHS. During my first appointment, Dr. Rosier clearly and in language that I could follow, explained the tests to be run, what she would achieve from those tests and included my wife in some of the tests as obviously it is her voice that I will be responding to most.All that data was then used to construct hearing aids that allowed me to hear those frequencies that I had lost. I have had the hearing aids for eight months and THEY ARE GREAT. I should have done this years ago. I now hear voices clearly (it no longer sounds like everyone is mumbling), I don't have the car radio and the TV so loud that it hurts my wife's ears, and I no longer am constantly asking someone to Please repeat that. Dr. Rosier also built into the hearing aids a Loop for use in church, concerts and stage performances.This has really been A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE."

The only criticism I have is that for most appointments I have had to wait 20-30 minutes. If you are a person who needs to be on time, this may bother you. But the flip side to this is knowing that if you need more time with Dr. Maccallum, she is there for you. And, thanks to Nicole and the office staff for being courteous and friendly."

"Life ChangingIt’s been eighteen months since I had my hearing exam and was fitted for my new hearing aids. Having tried and rejected a pair of devices elsewhere, about ten years back, I was reluctant to try the latest technology at Professional Speech & Hearing Specialists. I knew it would be costly and I had my doubts about its effectiveness and comfort. However, after a period of adjustment and frequent visits to Professional Speech & Hearing Specialists, I have found that I can’t function without them. The level of expertise and attention that I experience at Professional Speech & Hearing Specialists, along with the incredible functionality of the hearing aids is remarkable. Now I can carry on two-way conversations, rather than faking it or just nodding. I do so in relatively noisy environments. I can connect wirelessly to my cell phone to converse, listen to music or follow GPS directions when driving. I can also follow the news and dialog on TV via Bluetooth.The devices, which are small, light and comfortable, are actually computers that can be programmed for various situations and uses. They are not inexpensive, but three years of service, including cleaning and maintenance as well as instruction and excellent, thoughtful professional counseling and testing is included. I was able to pay for mine over a year and a half at no additional cost.I would highly recommend Professional Speech & Hearing Specialists."

"What is your hearing problem? How and why did this even occur? What are your options? Will I really notice a difference? Who can help? Enter Patricia Taft, MS.Heeding the advice of a trusted friend, I visited Pat Taft for answers to all those questions. Having access to the latest technologies and being more than well versed in every advancement in audiology certainly equipped Pat for succeeding in helping me, but it was her care, professionalism, attention to detail and persistence to get every aspect of my hearing improved that made the most difference. I’ve been around a long time and visited more than a few medical professionals but can definitively state that none has done a more thorough job than Patricia Taft and the warm, caring and well trained staff at, Professional Speech and Hearing.I could not recommend anyone more highly and if you ask why I choose to give them all 5 stars—it is because six was not an option."

Emily Gaines, Au.D. did an excellent job with the testing, and gave me a very clear description of what the test results were. It was a pleasure to meet your staff, and I will be pleased to recommend your facility to others. Well done !!"

"Professional Speech & Hearing Specialists, Ocala, Florida is where I have purchased hearing aids since buying my first aids in January 1999. I have purchased three sets of aids over the last 18 years, the latest of which was this month, October 2017. I can't say enough about the good service I have had from them. They have always been concerned about any issues and very willing and able to do what is needed to remedy the problems. They are very courteous, friendly and make me feel very comfortable and welcome. I have been assigned to Patricia Taft, who is very skilled in her work, and I would never consider going anywhere else.Betty H. CraigSilver Springs, Florida"

Tabitha is always patient about teaching and - when necessary - reteaching me. I am not great with electronics, but I can use my aids, the TV sound projection and my Iphone with my aids."

"They are very down to earth and treat my son like he was their own child. He's been there since he was 3 and he's made a lot of improvement. When he started he could only speak like 3 words, now he can hold a conversation."

"Very satisfied with the practice and Dr. McCallum. When I recently moved, my prior practice of 15 years in Maryland recommended this one. After my first visit, I feel that the transition will be very smooth."
