Richmond Virginia Sinus and Allergy Specialists
If your nose is stuffy, drippy, painful, crooked, or if it just looks funny, we can take care of it – inside and out. Our training covers all diseases of the nose and sinuses, including nasal allergies and asthma, as well as cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the nose. Dr. Armstrong is a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy. We are the first in Richmond to offer in-office sinus CT scans on the same day as your first office visit, and the first in Virginia to offer balloon sinus dilation.
Michael Armstrong, Jr., M.D. is a graduate of Princeton University and Duke Medical School, who trained at Johns Hopkins in otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, and facial plastic surgery. He is double board-certified in otolaryngology (ENT) and facial plastic surgery. Dr. Armstrong founded Richmond ENT in 2001 to explore innovative ways to improve care of ear, nose and throat disorders. Dr. Armstrong was a pioneer in less invasive sinus surgery and was a leader in developing modern techniques in balloon sinus dilation. We are currently developing new medications to control nasal polyps, restore hearing loss and reduce tinnitus (ringing ears).
William L. Wilkes, M.D. graduated from the University of Georgia and the Medical College of Georgia before completing an ENT residency and otology fellowship at VCU’s Medical College of Virginia.

He treats a wide range of ear, nose and throat concerns, with a special interest in allergies and ear diseases, including balance, hearing loss, and vertigo.
