Testimonials

From Our Patients

I just wanted to say thank you again for everything you did. It seems weird to say, but I kind of miss the hospital!! You all were very nice and made me feel almost like at home.

M.D., age 20, Barcelona, Spain

"After eight years of a losing battle with bulimia, the Torrance Memorial eating disorders team restored my daughter's ability to eat, and they changed the way she looks at food. The support we received was amazing."

B.M., father of Dina, age 22

"Integrity, empathy, and expertise are just a few of the qualities Dr. Schack embodies and utilizes to create a meaningful relationship with her patients. As an adult anorexic on the verge of organ failure and death due to her disease, Dr. Schack's program revitalized me and provided me the foundation from which to jumpstart my new, healthy lifestyle."

M.P., age 26

"I cannot begin to say how grateful I am for all you have done for me."

"I want to thank you for your help. I never had such good doctors before. For me until now you are the best team and unfortunately I met a lot of doctors."

L.R., age 23, Munich, Germany

The care I received was comprehensive and holistic--every aspect of my eating disorder was addressed by a true expert. Each member of the treatment team gained my trust and respect; they worked seamlessly together and with me so that we were all on the same page. When I was skeptical and resistant, they were compassionate and patient. I am leaving with health and understanding for which I owe my most sincere thanks to Dr. Schack and the team at Torrance Memorial Hospital.

M.M., age 24

"Words fail me when I think of how much you have helped me during my stay."

K.S., age 28
