    It seems there's a market, at least for YouTube viewers, for sensual eye exams and other types of medical exams!

    She needs to go back to school. I have never seen anyone use an otoscope to examine your eye.

    I don't think this patient cares what she uses as long as she talks that way.

    Can't imagine I could give this level of service. There are some here that would promote differentiating ones self by exceeding patient expectation. Go for it if you think you can.
