Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
If you did not contract
with this doctor and he was merely in the room as an extra and not part of the surgical team, you have grounds to dispute the fee with the hospital and you can also seek to file suit against them for breach of contract
for them charging you improperly for someone who provided no services and was not part of your team. You would start by filing a written demand to the billing department that they remove the charge for services never provided. If they refuse to do so, then you can seek to file suit against them for unfair and deceptive practices and improper billing for charging you for services you never contracted for and for a doctor who was not part of your surgical team and was merely an extra.
This is your legal remedy against the hospital improperly billing you for services not provided to you.
