What is the legality behind referring specialist or other doctors?
Someone I know was initially diagnosed by doctor A who got my friend tested and got results. Doctor A then referred her to a specialist Doctor B who after consulting was now referred to Doctor C because Doctor B treatment isn't suited. All this referring incurring expensive out of pocket consultation fees. It feels very off and there's a lack of transparency.
Isn't Doctor A supposed to correctly assess the diagnostic and refer correctly to the correct specialist?
