I am grateful to have had an excellent experience being referred to Dr. Brian Rotenberg. He is approachable, kind and caring. He really listened to my concerns. My surgery was successful, and the process was worth it. Dr. Rotenberg is knowledgeable and helpful. I am happy to say I no longer have my postnasal drip issues! I feel so much better. Thank you.

You will be in good hands with Dr. Rotenberg and his assistant Desiree. They helped me see them as quickly as problem to try and solve my problem. They would respond to my email questions in the same day I sent them which I know some doctors do not do. Dr. Rotenberg did my surgery smoothly and I had no negative side effects afterwards. Really the best physician and staff you can ask for.

Dr. B. Rotenberg is an extraordinary surgeon and I feel most fortunate that I was referred to him to perform a Eustachian Tuboplasty. The operation was a total success, and I am now able to hear 'normally'...every aspect of the process...from arranging the appointment, the consultation, the operation and post op recovery was professional and friendly. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Dr. Rotenberg and his staff.

Greatest decision of my life seeing Dr. Rotenberg. Had a sinus surgery done that completely changed my life. Couldn’t imagine a better experience.

I had balloon sinuplasty in November. The surgery exceeded my expectations. I went from almost no airflow on my right side to excellent airflow. Dr. Rotenberg and his entire staff are 1st rate. I would recommend this procedure 100% and would recommend Dr. Rotenberg's expertise to perform the surgery. 6 months after the procedure and I am still amazed at the results.

Had a septorhinoplasty done and turned out great! I can FINALLY breathe through my nose, as I had a really bad deviated septum and crooked nose. Thank you so much.

Let me begin with saying that I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Rotenberg. Initially I went to go see Dr. Rotenberg for what I thought would be a Septoplasty consultation. He examined my nose and thought that I could benefit greatly from this procedure, but he also brought up that I would be a great candidate for a Septorhinoplasty (which I didn't really consider until that moment). He described how combining the two surgeries would not only be beneficial for my breathing, but the appearance of my nose would also benefit. Being a person with a crooked and broken nose from childhood, I decided to go through with the Septorhinoplasty. It is currently 11 days post operation, and I can BREATHE. Not only can I breathe, but the swelling has gone way down on my nose, and it looks great. I'm not only impressed with my ability to breathe, but I'm mind blown how much the appearance of my nose has been enhanced (and it's only been 11 days). I'm very happy with my results and I would recommend this Dr. Rotenberg to anyone. He has changed my life.

Dr. Rotenberg and his team are amazing. He took such good care of me for both my septoplasty/sinuplasty/rhinoplasty combination surgery in September 2020 AND my tonsillectomy in February 2021. He was attentive and listened to my needs and was quick to assess when I needed treatment. He wasted no time in getting me the help I needed and even accommodated me for a tonsillectomy on short notice so I could have the surgery before starting grad school. Him and his team have not only treated me, but my sister as well. It is always a pleasure with Dr. Rotenberg. I may add that his administrative assistant Desiree is also amazing and was so good about communicating with me, even on short notice. I would definitely recommend him! My nose surgery went so well that I didn’t even have bruising and the down time was extremely minimal. His attention to detail and his skill is outstanding. Thank you so much for transforming my health, Dr. Rotenberg!

Well worth the wait! One of the best surgeons to go to for any ear, nose or throat solutions.

Highly recommend Dr. Rotenberg! I had a septoplasty / rhinoplasty this summer. My nose was severely crooked, and my septum was almost fully closed on one side. He and his team were amazing every step of the way. Leading up to surgery all of my questions and concerns were patiently and considerately addressed. I was well cared for on the day of surgery and afterwards. He was happy to see me in person to address a concern I had post-op. Everything healed perfectly just as he said it would and I am very happy with the result of the surgery and can finally breathe.

Dr. Rotenberg fought for my health in a way no other doctor ever has. He was always friendly and genuine. I have a fear of surgery and I felt confident in his care. My surgery has changed my life for the better in many ways and I know it would not have been possible without his help. On my post-surgery appointment, he discussed my concerns and let me know methods to address any of them and was even willing to meet up again if I felt it was necessary. In my experience, this is not something most specialists will do. I hope that if any of my friends or family need an ENT that they are lucky enough to receive care from Dr. Rotenberg. On the subject of his staff, they are all extremely friendly and professional, his residents go the extra mile and have great bedside manner.

I have yet to see Dr Rotenberg, but I have faith he’s an excellent Dr. I have been struggling for two and a half years and am desperately trying to see him ASAP. My ears have been blocked with air and popping for over two years and I’m to the point where I cannot cope or live my life, I spend my days in my room crying begging for help and have got to the point where I have been self destructing to try to cope with all the endless agony in my ears, I’m so sad and I hope I will get to see him soon because I honestly can no longer cope with this horrific issue.

After one year and a half suffering with sinusitis I met Dr Rotenberg. He was extremely knowledgeable and made sure that I understood what was going on with my health. Post surgery he ensured I was comfortable and healing properly. He made sure that I could contact him if I had any questions or concerns. He truly changed the quality of my life...I would recommend him in a heartbeat!!!! Truly a life saver!

My experience with Dr. Rotenberg was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and happily answered all my questions and addresses all my concerns. Dr. Rotenberg and his staff went above and beyond to ensure that my surgery experience went as smoothly as possible.

After several years of having tubes put in my ears, they finally didn't work anymore and lasted only a couple months. Without them, I could not fly, too painful and constant ear infections. Dr. Rotenberg did a Eustachian tube balloon dilation surgery and since I have not had one earache and have flown several times PAIN FREE. The staff both at the office and the surgery clinic were wonderful. Thanks to Desirea for putting up with all my calls and questions.

Dr. Rotenberg performed balloon Eustachian tuboplasty on both of my ears last summer and it was overall a good experience. Dr. Rotenberg is very approachable with excellent bedside manner. He never rushed me, always listened intently, and always answered all my questions - even personally over the phone and through email. He was very thorough and had a genuine concern about my condition, and my progress post-op. He took the time to contact and update my ENT back home so that everyone would be on the same page before and after my operation. His staff at both St. Joseph's and his private clinic were friendly and easy to work with. I would certainly recommend Dr. Rotenberg to perform this type of surgery or even to be your regular ENT.

Brian and staff were excellent in all areas of the surgery experience. I had sinus surgery to remove an infection I had for over a year. The surgery went very well, and post surgery was a breeze. The final result was excellent. Thanks Brian and staff. The nurses at St. Joes were also excellent - thanks!!!

I had a Septorhinoplasty about 6 months ago. I am very happy with the results, both cosmetically and functionally. Dr. Rotenberg was very kind and gentle. The nurses at the Clinic were great, too!

First of all, if you are considering Balloon Sinusplasty, I would 100% recommend it. My hope is by sharing my entire experience, it will put your mind at ease. I have been in need on Rhinoplasty for at least 10 years with a severe deviated septum. The symptoms on my right side would get so severe, I would actually have panic attacks from the feeling that I could not breath. I knew that I could not forgo a standard deviated septum surgery as I had it done once before in 1984. I reached out to Dr. Rotenberg after hearing about Balloon Sinusplasty. Right from our first encounter (which due to covid was via phone), I felt confident that is procedure was right for me. Dr. Rotenberg answered every question and then more afterwards via email. Dr. Rotenberg's staff at St. Joe's were wonderful. Desiree (Dr. Rotenberg's administrator) was always a step ahead.
When I finally did have a 1 on 1 with the doctor at St. Joe's, I was very impressed with all the staff. Never once feeling I was putting anyone out. I had a list of questions on a sheet of paper so Dr. Rotenberg sat down and answered everything. Coming from Windsor meant much had to be completed via phone. My preop with Gracie-Ellen just confirmed to me that I had made the correct decision. Again, you could tell she cared about her patients and making sure they were comfortable and informed.
The procedure took place first thing November 20th. I was greeted with a big smile by Kim who made me feel comfortable right away. Next, I was greeted by my nurse Brigitte who took care of me physically and emotional through the entire process. She is truly a kind, gifted person who loves what she does and you can tell she does. AMG is lucky to have her. I then met my Anesthesiologist, Dr. Eddy who took me through the process step by step. In the OR, I was impressed at the steps taken prior to the surgery. "The surgical pause" to ensure every person in the room was on the same page and they all agreed the surgery was a go. The next thing I new, I was coming out of the anesthesia with who else but Brigitte there holding my hand. Never once did I feel discomfort or pain or any feelings of anxiety.
As far as post op pain, there has been very little. I took pain meds on the Friday but opted for just Tylenol and Advil on Friday night. I know the true results won't be know for a couple of weeks but I do not regret for one minute having this procedure done and am sure I will be delighted with the final result. To all the staff, especially the ones I did not mention by name, thank you. To Dr. Rotenberg, your technical abilities, as well as your bedside manner are second to none. To my friend Brigitte, thank you. You are truly a gift. I am glad you appreciated my sense of humour. I hope you use my tomato joke for many patients to come. Warmest regards Ron Leslie
