James Lorge, DO

Orthopedics

“I enjoy taking care of the athlete, weekend warrior and the construction worker whose job is probably more physical than half the sports out there. I have a laid-back demeanor and will work to learn about you striving to understand what your goals are and what’s bothering you; is this something that’s significantly limiting your activities or is it a minor thing that we can address and keep you on track for what you want to accomplish. My job is to give patients the knowledge to make the right decisions about what’s right for them and their family. I’ll give you everything I have as a surgeon and physician, in return, I need you to give me everything you have as a patient. I’ll do my best to provide the tools to address your issues and I welcome questions. You can expect routine follow ups from me because I want you to be engaged and interested in your health.”

Special Areas of Interest

I love orthopedics and what I get to do in a day. I’m passionate about fitness and caring for our hard-working neighbors, including the weekend warriors, sports athletes, and the construction folks.

Personal Interests

I am very process focused and enjoy working with my hands. I love to fix things, even around the house. Fitness is a big part of my life and I enjoy it with my family including my wife Kari, daughter Gabi and son Anderson. I also LOVE high school football and have been active in the community covering the sidelines!
