I have never commented regarding several issues that I felt were
inappropriate, but this time I cannot hold back. If this list is intended as
an "academic adjunct for professionals in the field of vascular
surgery/technology," then all comments made by commercial representatives
should be limited to technical in nature. Mr. Diagle and Mr. Middleton have
used the flownet as an advertisement for some time. If this is how they wish
to participate in the flownet then they should pay for advertising space.
It is ironic how other major ultrasound companies stay off the flownet. This
shows a great deal of professionalism on their behalf and a total lack of
professionalism by Mr. Diagle and Mr. Middleton. Let's keep the flownet
pure!! Manufactures and their representatives need to reserve their comments
to the privacy of their customers offices.
Thanks Steve for handling this situation. It left a very polite and talented
tech very upset.
