Pathology with Dr. Raj
By Ali J. on 10. March 2023 for Introduction to Red Blood Cell Disorders

Dr. Raj's style of teaching has made me really really dislike pathology. I wish you'd consider updating his pathology videos and filming them with a different professor. There are many other users like myself that do not find him beneficial at all.
