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."

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

"Thank you for saving me and my life. Most of all, thank you for never 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 matter how severe or hopeless you may think you are."

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

"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."

"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."

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