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.

 
Good, need more information
By Febelia Devina S. on 19. April 2017 for Atopic Dermatitis

Easy to understand. I recommend adding more information regarding medication such as what kind of systemic seroid we are using.

 
Non-pharmacological options
By Hamed S. on 07. April 2017 for Atopic Dermatitis

Fantastic talk but would have liked further information on non-pharmacological treatment and also the role of allergen testing

 
Like the use of DDX
By Hamed S. on 07. April 2017 for Seborrheic Dermatitis

I find one of the challenging aspects of dermatology is to keep in the various ddx for "similar" looking presentation. The way these lectures are set out has been very useful to have a few ddx to think about when facing a pt with a rash!
