Ioannis L. The professor and his team were great but the problem was with the organization since the day i arrived the prof didnt know that we were having a course since you haden't informed him...Luckily (very) we did it the next day but i had to stay a day more in Paris and spent more money etc . I hope in the future everything will be more organized and i think you owe me a discount or something for another course (also a certificate of attendance for the course) Best Regards Lekkas Ioannis MD PhD
