ER bills $1,000 for Doc who didn't show?

This is a first – the $1,000 “missing doctor” fee.

The doctor didn’t show up, but the hospital ER still billed $1,012…

Dhaval Bhatt, Martand’s father, said he’d been warned about hospital emergency rooms after he arrived in the U.S. from his native India.

“People always told me to avoid the ER in America unless you are really dying,” said Bhatt, a research scientist and pharmacologist at Washington University in St. Louis.

That’s where we are in America – even medical professionals are afraid of the financial risk of visiting an ER.
