Starting from the first year of university, Roger Weiss attended several lectures by the topnotch psychiatrists, experienced volunteers, and honored physicians.

Due to the enormous interest in self-development as a specialist, Dr. Weiss is continuously searching for new therapeutic ways, approaches, and investigations in the niche.
