How do I reinforce compromised load-bearing studs?
If the doorway wall has a header in it and is carrying the load from ceiling/floor above, there is probably a king stud and jack stud still supporting it. (Under the trim casing). The 3 studs are carrying a point load from above OR are just backing for the doorway (partition) drywall. It may just be blocking sandwiched between two studs if not loaded and you drilled through the solid blocking.
If any ads are present below my answer or words underlined/colored, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed/linked to, they are there without my consent.
WELCOME to the forums, if I forgot to say it!
