I don't see this as a consult. The ED physician called the GI in for the purpose of taking over care, not to help him treat the problem.
It is almost impossible, based on my understanding of consults, to get a consult from an ED physician. The intent of a consult is to get advice or opinion on how to manage/treat a problem, then the patient goes back to the originating provider for continued care. ED physicians don't manage problems, they treat what they can and send the rest on to other providers.
Just my opinion,
