Dr. Markarian is an excellent doctor. He took time to explain what he thought was going on in my Eustachian Tubeand that there's a new procedure to stretch it. He took pictures of the inside of my nose to get an overall idea of why I have a fluid problem from colds that take too long to drain. He recommended a Hearing Test first to determine how the Eustachian Tube functions, and based on the test result, will determine if I need the stretching procedure.
