Good explanation

Makes something hard easier. It is a good explanation and the presentation represents the most important points.

The content is informative, not every one is able to lecture or teach for that matter, but these doctors do an excellent job. The videos are short and easy to watch which makes it easy to retain the information.

I am not very fond of Endocrinology and I do not know why, because I am a physician scientist myself. But this Lecturer Dr. Lazarus is very good explaining things.
