Excellent DDx for pharyngitis!
By Varvara W. on 14. August 2019 for Group A Streptococcus (GAS): Signs and Symptoms

What an excellent lecture! I have not seen a comparison of pharyngitis causes shown next to each other so clearly until now. Having the images of throat presentations displayed on the same slide as the narrative goes on was very helpful. Thank you!

 
Reader "teacher"
By David R. on 06. August 2019 for Cystitis: Definition, Epidemiology & Etiology

If I´m paying for people to read the slides, Im out of this, TBH this whole Lecturio actually is super good only for just a few doctors, like Dr. Raj, and some others, but this man... really? reading everything? I´m actually pissed off.

 
wisdom to be learnt from the experienced doctor.
By Paul J. on 13. July 2019 for Genital and Sexually Transmitted Infections

The teacher is a highly experienced doctor and the way he correlates the lecture with his clinical knowledge is amazing.
