Yonsei-L Eating Disorder Clinic

 

About Yonsei-L

Yonsei-L is one of the leading private clinics in Korea specializing in eating disorders. We provide pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, and other consultations to help all patients struggling with various types of eating disorders. Our treatment strategy not only involves the recovery of each patient’s eating disorder, but searches for environmental and other psychological or physical issues that may be underlying or interwoven with the disorder.
The letter ‘L’ in the name Yonsei-L represents our treatment goal and message to our patients,

 

“Love yourself”.
“Live your life”.
