Dr. Lenkowski diagnosed a cancerous tumor that he discovered, and I was able to get treatment in the early stages. I followed his advice on recommended doctors and his follow up advice after treratment had successfully removed the cancer. He is very personable and easy to talk and laugh with. When you ask him a question, he gives you an answer that you can understand. Everybody in his office is polite, professional, and easy to talk to and be around.

Dr. Lenkowski has a very personable "bed side" manner and is excellent explaining your condition and recommended options for treatment.

My ENT retired and I already knew some good opinions about Dr. Lenkowski so I chose him as my physician. Dr. Lenkowski has lived up to all the good things I heard plus more. He is very friendly, courteous, compassionate and professional. Dr. Lenkowski takes into account my concerns and feelings about the situation at hand and offers his opinion for treatment. I have not been disappointed in my decision.

Dr Lenkowski & his staff have always been courteous & very helpful. I am very grateful that Dr Lenkowski was able to successfully pass on some findings that Dr Lenkowski discovered to Dr Dye; while Dr Lenkoski performed a procedure on me recently. I have an appointment with Dr Dye at the end of May. I also want to thank the staff for being so helpful & courteous to me during some phone calls I made, when I wasn't very kind, during my frustrations. Thanks again, Brenda Wilkerson

I really appreciate how quickly I was able to get my appointment when I needed one so badly. I agree Dr. Lenkowski is very straight forward and professional. He takes time to listen and is very knowledgeable about solutions and helping work through all the possibilities. As I await my cat/scan I am very encouraged by all the previous reviews.

Dr. Lenkowski solved every ENT problem I had. He answered all my questions patiently every time I saw him and he has taken me right away every time I had an urgent matter. He is an EXCELLENT ENT!!
Roanoke, VA |
I went to see Dr. Lenkowski when I had swelling in the right side of my face. He diagnosed it correctly as a tumor in my right paratoid gland. I had all confidence in his ability to perform this surgery which involved removing the tumor from around the nerves in the right side of my face. The surgery was successful! Tumor was benign! Just as he said, it took almost a year for all the feeling in my face to come back, but it did! Thank you Dr. Lenkowski and all the nursing staff!
Rocky Mount, VA |
Dr. Lenkowski is very straight forward. He spent adequate time explaining details of my case, and answered all of my questions. The follow up tests were scheduled immediately. The CT scan results were available the next day, and Dr. Lenkowski called the pathologist, and got the biopsy results. He called me the day after my first appointment with all test results, diagnosis, and recommendations for follow up. His staff worked hard to set up the consultations around my busy work schedule.
