Dr. Loren is a very knowledgeable, kind and helpful doctor, and an outstanding person.
My son was born at the UWMC at 27 weeks gestation, and Dr. Loren was his doctor there. Dr. Loren was warm and calm with our son, and the same when dealing with us. After ten days at the UWMC we had to transfer to Children's (for neurosurgery) and Dr. Loren talked us through the process, called us the evening after we'd transferred, and visited us during our stay (10 days at UWMC, 65 at seattle Children's).
Dr. Loren takes time with his patients, and he takes time with parents. When I first met him, I was drugged to the gills (morphine due to my c-section, magnesium and a slew of other drugs due to my other problems) and he was calm, patient, kind, and took lots of time to talk to me about my son's issues, treatments, and always made sure to answer any and all questions we had.
On a more personal note, I remember laying in my bed (I was still a patient) and Dr. Loren was talking to me and my husband about the multitude of problems our three day old son was having, and he said (not exact words, because it's been almost six years) that our time in the hospital would be hard, but once we got our son home it would begin to get easier, and that over time we would be able to process our experience - he was the first medical person to say, in any way, that we might be taking our son home someday. And this idea that it was possible that our son could survive prematurity and blood problems and a bad brain bleed and go home was a breakthrough for me. I had been assuming he would not live, and that I probably wouldn't either. From there I started to recover, and I had hope. The day we were released from the hospital with our son we stopped by to see Dr. Loren.
If you are in the heartbreaking position of having a baby under care in a hospital, you could not do better than to have Dr. Loren care for your child.
