Success Stories

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 comforting.

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 his patient.

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.

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!!!!!

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.

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.
