  1. Question Post op guidelines
    New Call-to-action
    Can a primary physician charge an office visit during a post op surgical period? Ex. Pt had colonoscopy by a specialist but can 2 days later to his primary doctor for bleeding? Not sure can anyone please advise.

    Default Global period
    The global period applies only to the surgeon (or partner in the same practice, same specialty) who performed the procedure.

    Hope that helps
