Our daughter received outstanding, personalized care in Dr. Schacks 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!
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."

giving up on me, even when I gave up on myself."
"Thank you for bringing our daughter back to us."
"Thank you for everything you did for Carrie and our family."
"Without Dr. Schack's expertise I would not be alive today....
I recommend the Medical Stabilization Program to anyone and everyone no

"From the bottom of our hearts, we express our deepest gratitude to
everyone that was involved... Thank you for your care, time, love and

before. For me until now you are the best team and unfortunately I met
a lot of doctors."
"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.
