A patient came into our gastro office for a colonoscopy. She wasn't feeling well while at home doing the prep..but came in to see if it should be done anyway. The anesthesiologist would not go ahead since she determined the patient wasn't well enough. She had a respiratory ailment.
Can anything be billed? An office visit under gastro Dr.? Patient feels nothing should be paid to our office, she insists only Dr. who looked at her was the anesthesiologist. Please advise.
