‘He was the most wonderful lecturer on Materia Medica picturizing every keynote, if possible with an example of a patient. His weekly lecture hour where he took only one main remedy for the entire session, was a superb comparative study of numerous remedies. This was an improvement on Allen’s Keynotes and Farrington, with his experience on this……His ‘A Study of Materia Medica’ is a masterpiece of lectures and comparisons.’
