I traveled to the Cleveland Clinic to specifically see Dr Lorenz for a rare condition. I was BLOWN AWAY by the facility, efficiency, his staff and Dr Lorenz himself. I have never experienced the kiind of care that I received in my life... this faciltiy and his office run like a well oiled machine, but it never loses its warm feel. Everyone we encountered, desk clerks to doctors, were super attentive, caring, didn't rush you along... but still worked incredibly efficiently. Again, I was blown away. I traveled all the way from Texas to see Dr Lorenz, and I WILL do it again in a heartbeat should my condition return. BEST just isn't a good enough word, but he's the BEST.

I chose to go to Cleveland Clinic to get more help with my rare medical condition. Dr. Lorenz has gone above and beyond to make sure I am receiving the proper care. He has recognized situations where I need additional communication and he has taken personal responsibility to ensure that I have a full understanding of my condition. I feel very comfortable under the care of Dr. Lorenz.

I had a wonderful experience. Dr. Lorenz calmed me down about a something I thought was a problem. I just want to hug him -- he's such a Godsend. I always walk out of there on a cloud and smiling ear-to-ear. Thank you, Dr. Lorenz, for bearing with me and taking the time to reassure me and calm me down. Thank God for you!

It was a good experience. Dr. Lorenz was very pleasant and articulate. I was told to have any questions ready to ask the doctor. I had carefully written questions that were important to me. However I felt there was not time left to discuss these.

i found the entire experience extremely satisfactory. Everyone was courteous and competent , from the appointment center to the staff and receptionists to Dr. Lorenz himself! it was all very well-organized too. Dr. Lorenz was friendly, professional, concerned, explained and shared allinfo with me, showed empathy for my situation and was quite helpful. He took time to listen and todiscuss the situation with me, which was wonderful!! This visit was for a second opinion, but I am seriously thinking of transferring over to Dr. Lorenz as my main doctor for this health issue!

Excellent, simply Excellent. Dr. Lorenz did something worthy of mention and unusual:He provided me with the highest and best advice about my condition, and simultaneously encouraged me to reach my own conclusion relative to his advice. For many physicians and other advice giving professionals, this is a hard balance to reach. Dr. Lorenz did it easily.

From the moment I got to the Cleveland Clinic everyone I came into contact with was very courteous and knowledgeable. My appointment with Dr Lorenz exceeded all expectations. As a new patient I feel that we went out of his way to get to know me and my medical background. He was professional and personable and obviously extremely knowledgeable as it pertains to my rare condition.
