Lake Hiawatha, NJ |
Dr. Lorber is my new bff! I initalially felt uncomfortable discussing my hemorrhoid isssue with anyone but after meeting with her, she put all that anxieties to rest. She made me feel at ease and offered a solution to rid me of my issue. I am looking forward to have a better quality of life now...more

Never wrote a review of a Dr. before but Dr. Lorber deserves 5 stars. Just one visit. She was thoughtful, discreet and very clear about her recommendation (and why). Definitely not quick to surgery option
