Very pleased with Dr. Brian Rotenberg. Great service from staff and Dr. Rotenberg. Surgery went well, very happy with the results. After the surgery I can finally breathe through my nose, no more sleep apnea. No need to use CPAP machine, which is the huge for me, don't need to take it with everywhere. Plus, my nose looks amazing, and I can finally follow my dreams:)

Most amazing ENT out there. After many trips to several sleep labs, seeing another ENT, CPAP machines, and dental appliances I was never able to get a good night's rest...not until I saw Dr. Rotenberg. After my first visit with him he suggested we perform a sleep induced endoscopy to take a look at my air way while I sleep. Makes total sense, doesn't it?! This procedure led him to discover that my epiglottis was collapsing as I slept and a CPAP machine would actually make it worst, which it was! Dr R suggested a procedure to correct that and after the surgery I am now able to get a good night's rest. I've suffered with this sleep disorder for over 20 years and am extremely grateful to him and his team for changing my life.

Had a major surgery (4 corrections) by Dr. B. Rotenberg, He is the reason I can breathe easy. I am so grateful. I had follow-ups. Also, my heavy snoring is gone. I feel like I started a new life. If you have nose blockage and problem breathing, you will understand what I am talking about. Of you get Dr. Rotenberg you have nothing to worry. You are in good hands.

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 was amazing and helped change my life with his advice as well as the incredible job done for the major reconstructive surgery he performed. He was great at setting the expectations and delivered when it came time for my surgery. I healed very fast and started sleeping much better. Highly recommend him for his professionalism, bed side manor and intelligence. By far one of the best Doctors, I have encountered in my life.

Following an assessment of my sleeping/breathing challenges Dr. Rotenberg decided on a procedure that would open my airway. The surgery was performed on October 16, 2020, and it has completely changed my life. This great outcome is the result of his incredible surgical skills and while the first 10 days of recovery where a little rough, I immediately started sleeping soundly and waking refreshed. The procedure is called a UPPP (uvulopalatopharyngoplasty) which removes excess tissue from the throat. I received the best care from Dr. Rotenberg and his entire team and I’m grateful for their professionalism and genuine concern for my welfare. My sincere thanks.

I had two surgeries done recently with Dr. Rotenberg. I had a septorhinoplasty and a tonsillectomy. Dr. Rotenberg and his staff, both in his clinic and his surgical staff, were extremely friendly and made me feel so comfortable. I had my tonsils removed as they were very large and caused snoring, issues with swallowing and strep throat. I had no issues during recovery and my snoring has stopped and I have noticed a big difference with swallowing, and I no longer sound muffled when I talk. I had the septorhinoplasty as I had collapsed nose valves and couldn't breathe through my nose. I have been a mouth breather since as long as I can remember and so Dr. Rotenberg suggested this surgery. It is by far one of the best decisions of my life. I can now breath when my mouth is closed, which is something I think a lot of people take for granted. I had no issues with recovery. I had the cast on for a week and he removed it at my one week follow up appointed and I have not had any issues since. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Rotenberg. I would also like to give a shout out to Desiree who works for Dr. Rotenberg who was extremely nice and helpful. She also made my experience less stressful and more comfortable. 5 STARS!!!!!

After many sleep studies and being told by the sleep Doctor that I would die a young death because of my severe sleep apnea, I panicked, which put me into self help mode. This is where I found the amazing earth angel...Dr. Brian Rotenberg! I traveled from northern Ontario to meet him, discuss my situation and in no time, we agreed on a surgery. With any surgery it may or may not get the results you want. All I can say is it worked! Dr Rotenberg saved my life! And I mean that in every literal sense. His skill, caring disposition and his determination to leave no stone unturned is why I am alive and well on my way to healing fully and living a full life. There are simply no words good enough to say thank you for saving my life! I could go on and on. But to anyone who needs help and skill and knowledge beyond belief. this man gives so much of himself to his patients! God bless you and your staff we are so lucky to have you!!!!

After suffering with snoring for many years, I was referred to Dr. Rotenberg by my family doctor. Dr. Rotenberg recommended me for surgery, and I could not be more pleased with the outcome. From pre-op to now has been an excellent experience and I truly felt like I was being listened too the entire journey. He has truly changed my life and I actually sleep now! Dr. Rotenberg's has a great team as well and I highly recommend him to all. Thank-you for your care and compassion!

Three years ago, I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. I was prescribed a C-Pap machine. For the first year, I suffered through using the C-Pap. I was still having many episodes of apnea and I woke up constantly every night with the mask bouncing around on my face. It was definitely not working for me. It was a traumatizing experience every night for a year. I hated it. In desperation I looked for an alternative to the C-Pap. I was then prescribed and fitted with an oral device (Narval) which was supposed to move my lower jaw forward to keep my throat from collapsing while sleeping. I was also told that there were surgical alternatives but that they don’t always turn out well, which scared me. My sleep tests on both devices showed that they were doing the job, however I had my suspicions that they weren’t as I was still waking up light- headed and horribly tired. My appointment with Dr. Rotenberg came about 9 months into using the Narval and at this time I expressed my concerns that I was still in danger. Dr. Rotenberg suggested a sleep induced endoscopy to see what was going on. This saved my life. The results were that the oral device was doing absolutely nothing to prevent my throat from closing. It was also determined that I had overly large lingual tonsils (secondary) that were falling into my throat immediately after falling asleep. The C-Pap was actually blowing the tonsils down into my throat and choking me. The lingual tonsils combined with an overly fleshy throat contributed to my throat being reduced to the circumference of a pencil immediately upon falling asleep. Neither a C-Pap machine nor an oral device could have remedied this situation even though my sleep tests done while using the said devices indicated otherwise. Dr. Rotenberg suggested that the best results would be to have the surgery including the procedures as follows: lingual tonsillectomy, uvulopalatopharyngoplasty and an epiglottoplasty. I was more than ready to take this step and I had the surgery on April 10, 2019. I am an older gal, and it took about 2 weeks for me to fully recover and to return to work as an instructor. As I needed to be able to talk to a group, I had given myself a little longer to let my throat heal. I am so amazed at how well this surgery worked out for me. It is a joy to breath deeply and unobstructed. I had no idea how compromised I had been. This surgery has been life changing for me. I have a new- found energy both physically and mentally. I am FREE from all devices! Dr. Rotenberg through his attentiveness and brilliant expertise saved my life and for that I will be forever grateful! Sincerely, Val Bradley

Just had surgery to help with my snoring. Apparently, it was...rather loud. I'm happy to report that not only was everyone involved with Dr. Rotenberg, at both is office and the surgical suite, amazing and friendly, the snoring has all but vanished. Dr. Rotenberg was straightforward right from our first meeting and explained all the different options I had available to me. I know patients often don't get a choice of who they get referred to, but if you've been referred to Dr. Rotenberg, you're in good hands.

Dr. Rotenberg performed surgery to help with my sleep apnea. He was confident before the surgery that he could help me and that was the case. My breathing is much easier, and my wife says she checks on me to make sure I'm still breathing because she can't hear me snore. I am just a month removed from the surgery so I am excited to see how much better it will get. I would like to thank Dr. Rotenberg for helping me and his attention to detail. I am telling other guys I know about him.

He helped a great deal with my apnea. I had severe apnea and due to the excellent work done by Brian my apnea is now less than 10% of what it was previously. This has had a dramatic improvement in my life.

Professional and caring medical treatment. I had nasal and sleep apnea surgery and things are great. From the first visit to the operating table, I was cared for and kept informed of the procedures. The follow up appointment went well with some minor adjustments that were clearly explained. I highly recommend Dr. Rotenberg. He is a true professional. Thank you.
