Course Testimonial

“Personally I found that this “in person” style of training was far superior than the “online” option I participated in later that year for my advanced training. Having that personal connection with Doug and with the other participants made a huge difference in creating a more enjoyable and richer learning experience. Getting to know the other participants and hear their experiences with Neuroptimal was enlightening. Being able to ask questions as they arise and have the answers immediately was extremely helpful in understanding and learning the information being taught.”
