I would say yes, it's a consult. My reasoning is that it was at the request of Dr. ER, who felt a specialist should see the patient. Dr. GI examines the patient and decides at that point to do an EGD. He didn't know when he came in to see the patient that he would be doing an EGD, that decision was made at the time of the exam. So you have your request (Dr. ER), Dr. GI renders an opinion, and sends/documents a report.
