This really hit home, because I practice in a rural hospital without any specialties, and usually no one but me on site. Talking to the docs at what I hope will be the receiving hospital is often stressful. They don't want to hear from us, they have patients from their own eds needing beds. I often get something like " Dont you have a vascular surgeon there?" Duh, well no it's just us chickens. I do find being clear ,concise and authoritative helps.
