Dr.Lenkowski is hands down the best! I’ve been suffering forever with sinus infections, struggling to breathe. The right nostril has been blocked off for almost a year or more. I had an appointment with another ENT doctor and she wouldn’t even listen. I suggested my adenoids might be swollen, then she said you don’t have them while looking at the scan. Just allergies she said and sent me on my way. Choosing Dr.Lenkowski as my ENT was the best decision. Lenkowski got right down to the problem and helped me in anyway he could. Deviated septum with bone spur and enlarged adenoids. Unfortunately surgery never happened that day because of complications with my oxygen levels and I was put in the ICU. Dr.Lenkowski was kind enough to check in on me and made sure I was doing alright the whole time I was there. Choose him, you won’t regret it.

My sinuses and I cannot thank Dr Lenkowski enough! Not only did he help me, but he is, by far, the easiest doctor to talk to; he really understands! And his office is so convenient!

I had surgery for a sinus fungal ball in February 2019. My results were amazing. The day of surgery, it was like I had not had anything done. Dr Lenkowski called me later in the day to see how I was feeling. I’ve had many surgical procedures and this is the first time the doctor himself called to check on me. He is very personable and takes to time to listen to you. After many years of suffering with sinus problems, I feel great. I wish I had seen Dr. Lenkowski years ago! I can’t recommend him enough to get relief from chronically related sinus problems!!!

Dr Lenkowski has been so awesome with both me and my daughter (5). He has worked with us on our concerns, made sure we tried other options before resorting to surgery and just overall has been very attentive and kind. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT for an adult or child.

Dr. Lenkowski was interested in the reason I was there to be checked, he thoroughly examined my ears, nose, throat and neck and ask questions. When I was ready to leave he told me to come back if I had any other problems. I would recommend Dr. Lenkowski to any of my family members or friends.

I saw Dr. Lenkowski for the first time today. I had seen an associate of his that felt I could benefit from seeing Dr. Lenkowski. I appreciated his direct and straight forward approach, as well as his knowledge when he reviewed and explained my CT scan to me. He pays attention to detail and cares about his patients' quality of life. I feel I am in very capable hands as I face surgery in the near future.

In my opinion Dr. Lenkowski is the best ENT doctor in the Roanoke area. He is very personable, exceptionally knowledgeable in his field, and he takes the time to listen to the patient's concerns.
