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.

WE talked about many different new ideas for finishing up reconstruction of mouth area...Dr. Lorenz gave several ideas to look in to, a brochure to help with contacting a company with equipment I might use for exercising mouth, explanation about an ENT test he did in the office and showed a video with assurances that no tumors were in my nasal cavity. He summarized all that we talked about before we left.

Dr Lorenz is excellent in walking me through the current status of my situation. He talks with my other doctors at CCF. We talk through next steps together. I have peace of mind these days, which is important to my mental health, because I trust Dr Lorenz's advice and next steps.

I cannot even describe how thankful I am for *Dr. Lorenz (also *Dr. Bryson). What excellent physicians... this is what health care should always be like. The confidence I felt after meeting the two of them was outstanding. The amount of time explaining my upcoming procedure. Well worth the trip to Cleveland.

Care from Dr. Lorenz's office has been excellent. He is VERY concerned about my condition and is willing to go the extra mile to make sure I am able to continue to live my life to the highest level possible. Dr. Lorenz will take the time to make calls after hours to check on me following surgery. Not just following surgery, but a month or two, or even three months later he will make a call to check on me and make sure my breathing is okay. I have never had a doctor exemplify the positive qualities Dr Lorenz exhibits while taking care of patients.

I feel my whole visit to the Cleveland Clinic and the surgery that I had the next day was completely awesome. Dr. Lorenz is the kindest and most down to earth man that I have ever had the pleasure of having for a doctor. He took all the time I needed and answered all my questions. The staff was also very courteous and helpful. I worried so much before my visit and surgery, but that sure was a waste of time. The surgery being the fourth one, was so easy and the best one that I have had. Thanks to Dr. Lorenz and a great staff at the clinic and hospital.

I can definitely say I am in the best care with Dr Lorenz. His compassion for his patients is astounding. He even took the time to call me personally to ask me about my symptoms, and made sure I had the best surgical team during my procedure. The 2.5 hour drive I have to see him is well worth it!! Dr Lorenz is the best of the best, I can not recommend him enough!
