Seems like it was necessary to verify the patient's condition, so yeah, I probably would. Of course, if they don't have insurance, you may discuss it with the doctor to see if they just feel like being compassionate on the financial aspect. That can get pretty expensive, and piling on a huge medical bill might deter them from seeking treatment they could really need in the future. Just my opinion, though...
