Nice overview.
By Vidar d. on 01. April 2018 for Seborrheic Dermatitis, Psoriasis and Impetigo in Children

Nice summary of most common rashes in children. Nice recap questions.

Articulate and engaging style of speaking
By Hala A. on 20. November 2017 for Atopic Dermatitis

I don't think he's robotic at all. The way he talks keeps me engaged, better than most monotone professors I have in med school Excellent explanations. He is very articulate and knows how to tie facts together and emphasises on the key facts so you at least leave the video knowing what Atopic Dermatitis is about

excellent presentation
By Courtney W. on 17. September 2017 for Seborrheic Dermatitis

I love how he directly emphasizes main points with repetition and gives details of differentials. He is very direct and to the point, no wasted time.

Smoothly presented lecture, good content, could use some additions
By George L. on 14. May 2017 for Atopic Dermatitis

Good lecture. The talking is very smooth and continuous not robotic like it sometimes tends to be the case with Dr.Raj. Excellent! Good explanation of the terms and the difference between atopic and contact dermatitis! Some more elaboration on treatment options, including non-pharmacologic and the role of allergen testing (should you do it or not?) would be a good addition.
