I always find Jake Fratkin to be an excellent teacher and easy to listen to.

I always value Jake Fratkin's courses because he is a practicing clinician. Combining academics with life long clinical experience is always a stronger approach than courses given by those who are primarily lecturers or theoretical specialists.

For someone who is completely lost with Chinese herbology, Dr. Fratkin makes it understandable in small workable chunks. I am confident in my ability to suggest herbs to my patients who come in with colds, coughs, sinus conditions. I am looking forward to moving forward with the courses.
