NAO Student Testimonial; Dr Mahmood Mohseni, MD

Here we have added another testimonial from an NAO student:

Hello Dear Professor Amir Kazemi:

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your clinical practical Osteopathy classes. I know it's not easy to teach but you managed to keep us all interested and we even had fun! You are an excellent teacher and have inspired me to continue learning with an open and positive mind. I appreciate all your hard work. You've helped build the foundation for improved academic achievement, focus and social interactions. The impact of your help is so significant. I wish I'd had a chance to say a proper thank you in person to you for being such a fantastic teacher.
I also appreciate Dr. Pourgol and Dr. Habibinia for their interesting lectures and Luary for her kindness & cooperation with students.

Thank you again. Best Regards,
Dr. Mahmood Mohseni, MD

NAO Student Testimonial: Kyle Perks

We love our students! Here is a testimonial of one of our students:

"The National Academy of Osteopathy has been an excellent experience thus far! Hands down, this is the best practical training I have received.
Dr. Pourgol does a great job demonstrating the techniques on each of the students so that we can experience the technique first hand and know what we are supposed to feel. This allows us to communicate with the other students to see how our technique compares to the instructors. I am really enjoying the program and I look forward to going into class each day! "

NAO Graduate Testimonial: Angele Boyle

NAO graduates make us so proud. Here is a testimonial from one of our graduates:

"Good evening Dr. Pourgol. I hope all is well with you these days. I see you are making great strides in the Osteopathic world! Congratulations to you and your support team…………….I have been very busy this past year growing my business, lately being booked weeks in advance. The osteopathy component to my practice is definitely what has stimulated the growth in the past year, almost doubling my income in one year! This has happened without advertising, simply by word of mouth, client referrals! And I can honestly say that working with others and helping them cope or relieve their pain is one of the most rewarding jobs I can imagine having."

The course was well organized and easy to follow. Studying at my own pace was excellent. The practical was well taught and highly valuable. The expanded opportunities will be a good challenge. As a Chiropractor I find these procedures as effective with no possibility of after effects. More Chiropractors should get on board.
