I am "just" a hearing aid dispenser. I have a very good relationship
with an ENT in town and he allows me to occasionally OBSERVE ENT
procedures (typanoplasty, etc.) I touch nothing. I just look as he
explains whats going on. To me, it is very interesting, but I would not
dare touch any instruments, even if asked. My realm of expertise stops
after testing, earmold impression taking and the fitting of hearing
Have a nice day,
