When does an #ePatient (empowered, engaged, expert, enabled, equipped, emancipated) become an expert? Expertise=skill or knowledge in a particular area.

He certainly knows more than I do, has confidence in his knowledge, and asserts himself with his knowledge. He’s an expert about dinosaurs, isn’t he?
