I've was a patient of Dr.Lorenze for quite some time. I have sent friends, family and co-workers to him over the years. He is not the same Dr. I remember. I've had three surgeries total by him. Almost 6 months after having knee's replaced, still in pain, walking stick legged and can't do stairs. He basically brushed off my pain. I went to another Dr. for a second opinion and left there hearing my knee's need to be replaced again. Go to a Dr. that does just knees.

Referred to this doc after an injury to my arm with some nerve damage; at first very pleasant but I did note he never really examined my arm. After three appts he decided he could not help me since I didn't need surgery. Told me he could not help me and refused to make a referral to another doctor; stated I don't know anyone in that field. Rude and unethical.

Made an appointment for a 2nd opinion. Once there, he tells me he doesn’t do 2nd opinions! His answer to my questions "I don’t know". Very curt! Waste of time.

I've been a patient of Dr Lorenze since 1999. I first came to Dr Lorenze with a shoulder injury sustained at work. I was treated and back to work in a short period of time. I was so impressed with Dr Lorenze that I have continued seeing him over the last 15 years for many orthopedic injuries . He's a skilled surgeon with a great bed side manner. I trust Dr Lorenze immensely and I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Lorenze took the time to explain the implications of a total knee replacement. He visited me in the hospital on a Sunday evening to see how I was doing. I would highly recommend him!!!

Had endoscopic carpel tunnel both wrist. Could not be more pleased with outcome- and essentially pain free, scar free. Great staff too. For once I made the right choice of providers.
