Why would my angiogram doctor want to transfer me to the surgical hosp
My cardiologist set up a catheterization angiogram at a local testing center to determine the level of blockage.
The procedure revealed blockage in at least 3 arteries, and recommended bypass surgery.
However, the center wanted to immediately transfer me via ambulance to the surgical hospital, the same day before I had even seen the potential surgeon.
I refused, pointing out that is was a Friday afternoon and even if the hospital admitted me, nothing would ne done over the weekend, or later until an with the surgeon was obtained and the surgery scheduled.
Anybody have this attempted? Seems to be a scam to charge the $8000-10000 for an unnecessary ambulance trip.
