Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
Plastic Surgery & Facial Surgery
Richmond ENT offers comprehensive evaluation and management of nasal, sinus and allergy conditions. After a complete head and neck examination we often perform nasal endoscopy to obtain a magnified view of the nose and sinus drainage pathways. We use video monitors so that the patient and family can see the problems we intend to treat. If a sinus CT is necessary, we can perform the scan in our office in 20 seconds or less - with one-fifth the radiation dose commonly used in hospital scanners. We will review the images immediately with the patient. If allergy testing or immunotherapy is necessary, we can schedule the test right in our office. By making these services available all in one place, we are able to quickly achieve the correct diagnosis and make treatment recommendations - often on the first visit. That allows you to return to work or school with fewer appointments.
Dr. Armstrong was the first surgeon to perform powered endoscopic sinus surgery in the office and the first in Virginia to perform Balloon Sinuplasty. He has demonstrated that office procedures are less expensive and provide quicker recovery compared to sinus surgery in the OR. In his last study, patients randomized to balloon sinuplasty recovered three times faster than similar patients randomized to sinus surgery. Most of his sinuplasty patients resume normal activity the same day - some even returning directly to work!
Dr. Armstrong is also an expert in cosmetic and reconstructive rhinoplasty, or surgery of the nose. He is an examiner for the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and volunteers his vacation time teaching and repairing congenital deformities on children in Africa and South America. He performs facelifts, laser treatments, Botox and filler injections in his office.
No malpractice history found for Virginia.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?

Healthgrades updates the Recognized Doctor list quarterly based on board certification data. Healthgrades also receives sanction and malpractice data throughout the year, depending on how frequently the state medical boards release updates.
We remove a newly sanctioned doctor from the Recognized Doctor list as soon as we receive the information. However, it is important to note that malpractice information is publically available in only 14 states.
