FYI not trying to get into a pissing contest as I admit we NEED your skill set, but your comment comes across as a condescending attempt to belittle other specialties.
He's a CTS. I would be shocked at anything other than condescension.
If anyone needs me I'll be over in the corner working on a proximal rta.
