Student Testimonial From Saudi Arabia: Dr M. Alanzi, MD, DO



A letter from one of our Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) students in Saudi Arabia.

Dear Dr Shahin Pourgol,

It was really a pleasure being a student at this respectful academic institute and I was honored being one of the graduates of this university.  I would like to extend my appreciation and admiration for you personally and the rest of the faculty at National University of Medical Sciences for the limitless help and continuing support given me during my study year.

I may not have had the chance before to express my true feelings towards the institute as well as towards you personally, and I am sure that there are no words that can explain how much I really appreciated all your assistance and help.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and happy graduation for all graduates, and best of luck to all.

Warm wishes,

Muahmmed A. S. Almashhour Alanzi, MD, DO
