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.
