Dr. Lorber is my #1 go-to Doctor when I (or a family member) has any concerns regarding colon/rectal issues. I am so relieved to have found such a professional and compassionate practitioner. I would highly recommend Dr. Lorber.

I had a bad experience with Dr. Lorber. Aside from her lack of compassion and bedside manner, Dr. Lorber misdiagnosed me. She was indignant when she read my gastroenterologist’s colonoscopy report which, according to her, indicated that I had untreated microscopic colitis. As a result of her interpretation of this report, I began being treated for this condition. My new gastroenterologist showed me the actual report which stated r/o microscopic colitis which means ruled out. She didn’t see that.

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 that Dr. Lorber is my doctor. The staff may seem alittle standoff-ish but they are just as helpful and professional as the doc. I would highly recommend a consult with Dr. Lorber.

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
