"Dr. Lorenz and the staff at Meridian OB/GYN are friendly and professional! The environment was clean, comfortable, and put me at ease. I did not feel like I was just another person on a schedule. Dr. Lorenz listened well and explained things in-depth, in a way that I could actually understand."

Elizabeth Carroll


"My prenatal visits were easy but comprehensive and he took extra precaution with anything that even looked a little out of the norm. The whole staff is friendly and warm. I’m happy to finally be done with this pregnancy but sad I won’t be seeing them as often."
