The Doctor is extremely experienced. Has over 2 decades of experience in ENT-related issues; an extremely well-informed Physician.
I had a ear block. Dr after checking identified as was. Asked me to put some drops for a week and come back. When I got back after a week, he removed it easily.
The doctor left way before my appointment. He did not even know I had an appointment with him. Not worth the time or money.
