1 doctor agrees
In brief: Varies
You can expect at least an inspection of the nose with a speculum, looking in through the front of the nose.
The doctor may also elect to use a scope to look further into the nose.

In brief: Endoscopic exam
When an ENT surgeon examines you for a sinus infection he will do a complete head and neck exam. You may also have a nasal endoscopic exam - very easily done in the clinic.
This is using a telescopic camera to look in the nose a sinus passages.
