some dictionary time:
first "Professional" - someone that gets paid for doing the job. Skill, knowledge (and connections) will dictate how much they get paid

Expert - a person who is very knowledgeable about or skilful in a particular area
- oh, so they could be "very knowledgeable" but just not good at implementing that knowledge.

It like any industry, once you start working with them, then you start to realise they just as fallible as you
