You don’t have to “just live with it.”


Tinnitus is not a disease. It’s a symptom of an underlying health condition, like a head or neck injury, hearing loss, an ear infection, impacted earwax, or even a side effect caused by certain medications. The sound a person hears is often a persistent buzzing or ringing that can interfere with sleep or one’s ability to concentrate. It is important to find an experienced hearing care provider who can personalize your care — a doctor who will listen to your concerns, evaluate the problem, and find the right solution. We’re that expert partner — ready to help you hear your best so you can live your best.

See what people are saying about Oberlin Hearing Care

  • I love the time you get to spend with the staff. They are very thorough and you don’t feel like a number. Dr. Josh really takes time with his patients. He is very personable, wish all Dr’s were this way.

    Connie Y.

  • What I liked best was no waiting. Doctor sets you up with the aid that will perform the best for you. Doesn’t try to sell you something no suited for your hearing problem. His HELP are very friendly. Received courtesy call before next appointment.

    Harry B.

  • I liked the friendly, easy-going staff, no high-pressure sales and answers to all my questions.

    Gerald M.

  • Dr. Hetsko is very comprehensive and personable. Explains everything thoroughly.

    Jeanne M.

  • At my initial appointment, all my questions were answered in a calm and understandable manner, and no question was treated as too “silly” to answer. My hearing testing was very thorough and professionally done, resulting in very little adjustments required when fitting the hearing aids at my first fitting. All follow up appointments were only to review my concerns (if any) but they too were a pleasant experience.
