From Our Patients
Our daughter received outstanding, personalized care in Dr. Schack's
eating disorder program at Torrance Memorial Medical Center. Dr. Schack
meticulous, attentive, and thorough exceeded our expectations with her
integrative approach to healing. She was on top of everything medically,
but it was the little, non-medical things she did that made a difference.
Dr. Schack is a dedicated professional who obviously loves her work! We
are grateful for her and her supportive staff!
Mr. and Mrs. C., parents of H.C., age 18
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.

"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."

"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."

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.
