Pearls of Wisdom
By Frances E. on 15. October 2019 for Headache

Really grateful my brain works well with Dr. Raj's teaching style He always drops in links to other topics & things you should be thinking about when delivering his lectures

Well explained
By Nielsen R. on 07. April 2019 for Acute Headache: Hypertensive Urgency and Cluster Headache (Horton's Syndrome)

Well explained. The failure was to be so explicit without a lot of explanation.

severely disappointed
By Joseph S. on 14. December 2018 for Sub-Acute Headache, Chronic Headache and Migraine

seriously these series of lectures are the absolute worst. no explanation at all, no physiopathology, no images...just a pathologist who seems to be severely under qualified to teach a comprehensive clinical neurology lecture , reading a bunch of bullet points off the most lazily prepared power point presentation. seriously strating to wonder what the point of lecturio is. I do the q bank right after the lectures and literally nothing that is asked is mentioned in these lectures.

High Yield (& complete) synthesis on Headache
By patricia f. on 14. February 2018 for Headache

high yield and very useful. I personally like Dr. Raj (professionalism, kind of humour and teaching skills). Readily helpful for me and my preparation to Step 1
