My husband has had several back surgeries due to injuries. After Sustaining
his last injury, over a year ago, He not only had severe back pain, but
also burning in both legs. He had lost hope of having any kind of relief.
Dr Rogers was his surgeon to implant a nerve stimulator in his back. While
she was operating, she was able to remove some hardware from prior surgeries.
He now has no burning in his legs. His still needs to get stronger, but
He has hope for the first time in a long time. His entire demeanor has
brightened. Dr Rogers is not only a great clinician, but she is also patient,
kind, empathetic, and appears genuinely happy to be helping!

Dr. Barhaghi is by far the best OBGYN I have ever been to. She is kind
and patient and takes the time to answer all your questions...even if
you have a list of 20 written in your journal. She understands and is
sensitive to personal complications that may go along with visits to her
office and shows empathy and compassion. She also took 10 fibroids out
of my uterus this summer and provided excellent care both at the hospital
and during all the follow up appointments. She is simply the best.
Leonarminda Buan, Patient

to check out staff. Excellently organized and efficient workforce.

Rene Torres, Patient
I would like to commend Dr. Michael Yu and his assistant May for being
so caring and taking their time to listen to their patients, and for making
sure our health needs are met. I would also like to comment Olivia the
front desk receptionist. She is very friendly and always greets the patients
with a smile while checking them in, and makes sure to go out of their
way to help with any issues that may arise. It is a pleasure to be able
to receive such great service from a great medical facility. Thank you.
Therese Bohn, Patient
Susan Starr is one of the most compassionate and understanding professionals
I've interacted with during my illness and followups. She takes the
time to understand what I'm experiencing at the time, whether it was
during treatment, after treatment, during reconstruction, or standard
follow up appointments, and provides suggestions and solutions. Susan
is also prompt to reply to portal messages. I sincerely appreciate her
genuine concern for me and my health and the healthcare I'm receiving
in her office and elsewhere.
Dr. Kissel is a great doctor, super nice and excellent staff.
Marek Panasewicz, Patient
Laura at Dr. Kissel's office is the best. She's friendly and compassionate
and is by far the best at drawing blood - painless! I'd like her to
always take my blood when it needs to be drawn. Thanks!
Lisa Hall, Patient
Great, Dr. Taylor answered all questions thoroughly. Also office staff
great, so helpful!

I am very impressed with Dr. Ro's attention to detail, her openness
to my "story", her support for my good health. I am "on
board" with her as my new physician. I will be happy to refer her to other
Barbara Ramsey-Duke, Patient
Dr. Lee Kissel is the BEST Doctor Ever! Lorrie took blood and gave shot
so smoothly and without pain. She rocks too!
Mike and Barbara Millea, Family Member
I was in to see D. Lui with both my parents today - Dr. Lui and her staff
are wonderful. They are so gentle and caring with my parents. Dr. Lui
is a jewel. She is an extraordinary doctor and has the best bedside manner
of any doctor we have ever had.
Judy Schuay, Patient
This is the first time I have walked into a doctor's office and felt
at ease. The doctor was wonderful. Dr. Cooray explained a lot of things
I didn't know about. She seems like she really cares and has made
long term plans. I have seen a lot of doctors in the past 4 month and
none of them treated me with respect as she did. Thank you.
Christina Graham, Patient
Thank you for being thorough, Dr. Corray. I appreciate your considerate
staff. I'd recomment you highly any time!
Gilda Lane, PhD, Patient
Hope to have Dr. Gamboa as my MD at the clinic. Excellent personality,
cheerful, encouraging, knowledgeable, humble, ethusiatic - all that a
paitnet likes a MD to be
Blanca Intriago, Caregiver
Dr. Morales and her staff have been beyond exceptional with my mother.
It is refreshing to see a doctor take her time and be thorough and concerned
with the elderly. I am so happy my mother changed her general practitioner.
John Mifflin, Patient
Dr. Hawkins makes "getting old" much easier!! His deep knowledge
of many medical problems and his pleasant demeanor are always helpful...and
Heddan Golden, Patient
Dr. Elaine Jones and the office staff are always so efficient and professional.
They show they care.
Michael Berg, Patient
Dr. Hawkins is wonderful. I am blessed to have him as my doctor. Over the
years, as I moved around locally, I have been fortunate to have been able
to keep him as my primary care physician, and I am more than satisfied:
he knows me the way only a long-time doctor --- and a good one --- knows
Diane Newman, Patient
Pavan Brar is a wonderful practitioner who has always showed sincere concern
on my health. Easy to talk with and very knowledgeable in what she does.
Lauretta Loveland, Patient
Outstanding staff. Dr. Haas is an excellent doctor and treats patients
with respect. He LISTENS, which is almost rare with so many in the medical field.
Pamela Mullowney, Patient
My last few visits have been on time. I barely sat down in the waiting
room when I was called in. This is especially commendable as my appointments
were running late in the day. Dr. Mellor is always warm and welcoming.
She helps me explore numerous alternatives when that is appropriate.
Sabrina Williams, Patient
I would like to commend Mathew Ryan, NP. He has been amazing, patient,
supportive and very caring in helping me to find answers to why I have
been experiencing so much pain since the beginning of the year. I was
diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. He lets me know that he TRULY CARES and that
means a lot. He has referred me to doctors who could offer further assistance
when he didn't know the answer. Not once did he say "Its nothing
else I can do". I am so grateful that he is apart of the Network
and pray that he continues to support his patients because it means a
lot when you know your doctor cares and you are not just a "copay"
and money in the dr. pocket.. I still experience pain, but at least I
know it won't be always because of the efforts he has taken to make
sure I get the proper help I need. He is truly an asset to The Torrance
Memorial Team and Dr. Glazer.
Beverly Mairs, Patient
He is knowledgeable, professional, thorough, compassionate - choosing Dr.
Chen was one of the best decisions my husband and I have made. We feel
our health decisions are in good hands.
Douglas Clements, Patient
Dr. Kissel has been treating me and my wife for over 30 years, and he always
been a very caring and knowledgeable physician. He has adapted to the
new technology extremely well, he handles patient care the same way as
before the new stuff arrived on the scene. I would never change doctors.
Crystal Svoboda, Patient
I am extremely pleased with my experience, with The Torrance Memorial Physicians
Network. My doctor, Milena Shakhbazova M.D. is easy to talk to, she seems
to really listen and she explains things to me. I never feel rushed during
my appointment, which allows me to ask questions or voice concerns. Her
care team has always been very helpful and polite.
Shirley Dunn, Patient
She shows genuine concern for her patients. She calls me at home if she
has a concern befor my appointment. She seeks advice from her peers and
consults with my other doctors.
Geroge Smith, Patient
Dr. Yu and Dr. Shin all have been wonderful in my aorta valve replacement
issue! I have no desire to change any of my doctors...they all are great!!!!!
Nick Brajevich, Patient
Well run office [Dr. David Wallis]! You are all awesome!
Lisa Miali, Patient
Dr. Kissel is the best, he listens and genuinely cares and has the best
advice. Nurse was so quick with the tetanus shot, I didn’t even
know I got it!
Dave Matthews, Patient
I had low back spine surgery by Dr. Tiffany Rogers, MD. Check in to check
out everything went very well. The staff were kind and professional. I
would give them a 5 star rating.
Margie E., Patient
Dr Tiffany Rogers, is outstanding, she has done two back fusions on me-
One as a result of spinal stenosis which after 25yrs, finally got to the
surgery final option. It was very successful, but then due to an auto
accident, it compromised the discs above the fusion, so needed a 2nd fusion.
So continued success, I do recommend water therapy as the best for better
recovery (besides the land PT for maintenance), since I used water PT
for previous surgery, she continued with recommendation. Hope this helps
if you're contemplating surgery.
Gayle Shubin, Patient
Very, very good experience. Grateful for front and back staff. Especially
Vanessa. She is patient, kind, funny and took the time to care for me
and my insurance issues and Jasmin! Thank you!
James Kirwan, Patient
Dr. Milena is an excellent physician who takes time to listen and ask pertinent
questions. She is the best MD I have ever had.
