    Terrible. He was training a student at the time of my exam. I came in with possible dysfunctional Eustachian tube. The examination last a whole 21/2 -3 minutes. He looked in my ears quickly. Asked a few questions and then pushed his forefingers very hard on my upper jaw muscles. Told me to open my mouth. I could hardly open my mouth with the very hard pressure he was putting on the sides of my jaw. Then he said, it can possibly be TMJ. Don't eat crunchy foods only soft. That was it!
