Patient Reviews (1)
in Charlotte, NC |
I went to Dr. Lorch in 2010 after a 2008 back injury, later developing severe sciatica pain, and after seeing many other doctors.. Dr. Lorch is a no-nonsense physician and can 'appear' to be gruff, but this doctor gave me my life back and I am forever grateful. In trying to locate him I ran across the reviews and had to let others know how wonderful a provider he is.
