What Our Students Say"
It has truly been a pleasure working with Toya and her professional Doctors. Not only was she always available when needed but she made sure I had a safe place to stay and helped me with transportation when I was in an unfamiliar area. I highly recommend her services.
My rotations through Toya Banks were beyond my expectations. I have done my core rotations through Toya in the Chicago area and was absolutely thrilled with my experience. All of my rotations were scheduled in advance and started on time. There were no delays and if I had any issues Toya was there to help me right on the spot. All of my rotations were hands-on and full of interesting cases and clinical experience.
I’m so thankful for Ms.Toya all of my rotations were top notch. She guided me in the direction with help to my Match process. I am forever grateful for my sister.
Dr. Tabitha Watts was very committed to ensuring that all the students were able to maximize their learning during this rotation. This rotation exceeded my expectations and I am so thankful to have been provided with this opportunity.
Sessions with Dr. Cedric Coleman are really interesting. The main reason I like the sessions are because of the questions. I feel that I’m made to think and actually put my mind to work rather than just getting information. It is very helpful because it is an open discussion and I’m able to apply whatever I’ve learnt in the past. Initially, I was a little nervous in the start, but now I feel more confident. All thanks to doctor C!
