Student Comments

“Organized and professional without being dry and packaged. Dr Gaeta clearly knows his material, and presents it with warmth and passion. And this is subject matter that I will be able to utilize in my practice. I think you are doing a great job!

“I liked all of it. The inclusion of evidence-based data, to help support why we do what we do, is particularly helpful. Beautiful seminar – best presentation of the conference, in terms of notes, balance of contents of notes, interaction with attendees, etc. Can’t imagine anything I would change!”
