Diagnosed in 2021'and in a very fragile state with very low weight and low self esteem.Dr Vtich took her under her wing and brought her back to a fairly healthy weight.This time only her weight was healthy and mentally not so good, and unfortunately she refused to engage in services and her weight and mental health regressed after a few months.
Our Dr referred her back to Dr Vtich and thankfully this time everything went really well and we were so thankful she took her on again.
Our daughter was seen each week by Edel the dietician and Siobhan the nurse ,and they gave her such great support, understanding and professional care and kindness .
Our daughter has gained great confidence delights in getting dressed up and going out to meet her friends and she's enjoying life like a teenager should again. We are beyond grateful to Dr Vtich , Siobhan and Edel for supporting us and our daughter through a very difficult time .
