When you visit Formé Medical Center and Urgent Care with concerns about an ear infection, you can expect prompt, professional, and attentive care.
Your provider reviews your symptoms and medical history and performs a physical exam. Then, they examine your ears, nose, and throat using a pneumatic otoscope, which is a special instrument that helps diagnose ear infections.
With the pneumatic otoscope, your provider gently pumps air into your ear to look for movement of your eardrum. If there’s no movement, then you have an ear infection.
