Additional Information

Dr. Michael Armstrong is the founder and owner of Richmond ENT, a private medical practice specializing in ear, nose and throat disorders in Richmond, VA. Trained at Johns Hopkins University (1989-1995), Dr. Armstrong was certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery in 1995. He was certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 2001, and now serves as an oral examiner. He completed the fellowship examination of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy in 2007. In appreciation for his frequent lectures and mentorship of advanced practice nursing students and family practice residents, he has been appointed an assistant professorship at Virginia Commonwealth University, in the departments of otolaryngology (since 2003) and nursing (2014). While enjoying the breadth of otolaryngology, Dr. Armstrong has developed a particular interest in nasal and sinus disorders and in facial plastic surgery. He has co-authored several papers on minimally invasive sinus procedures, patented a safety needle device, and brought a new tonsillectomy tool to market. His most recent publication is a review of strangulation injuries (June 2016). Dr. Armstrong has reviewed over 50 medical liability or personal injury cases within the specialty of ears, nose and throat, and has testified in court or in deposition more than a dozen times. Previous cases have included personal injury claims of tinnitus, hearing loss, and throat injuries, and surgical complications following neck dissections, tonsillectomies, nasal and sinus surgeries, and facial cosmetic surgery.
