For 98 CP, they may be a one trick pony, but they have a very effective trick, and their exceptionally high skill allows them to heal their patients by 32 HP per day.
Playing that character would be unbelievably boring. Also frustrating when the medical problem isn't a simple injury. And they could spend half as much on their Major Healing and still be just as useful as a healer of major injuries anywhere except in an army hospital in wartime.
