I really like the professor/Doctor who is doing the lectures. Cute and funny with a lot of great info. I especially liked his foot modeling. He is right. I also like how he advises to work with patients and I bet they love him too.

The lecturer is very eloquent and pleasant. He also points to facts which may be confusing and harder to memorize, making it easier in remembering. He gives great examples to stress the importance of the information in his lectures.
