Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

While there had been major progress in joint implants at the time of my bilateral knee replacement, Dr. Lohrbach chose to use joint hardware that's been around for FORTY YEARS according to my 2nd opinion. It's 4 years later and I'm in constant pain with a range of motion limited to barely 90 degrees in both knees. Dr. Lohrbach is a HACK with the bedside manner of a party clown.

Since my knee surgery two years ago I have been in chronic pain. Talking to Dr. Lohrbach about the issue has been like talking to a brick wall. He asks few questions and seems uninterested in finding a solution. I would not recommend trusting this doctor.
