If doctor needs second opinion on ultrasound, can he charge for his?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

In my practice, i often provide "second opinions" informally and for this there is no additional charge to the patient.
However, there are times when i provide a second opinion which does result in a charge. A second opinion is well worth the cost if there is a discrepancy or complicated medical situation.
