E/M same day different hospitals

We have an infectious disease doctor that saw a patient at one hospital. Then the patient was transferred to another hospital and the doctor saw them on the same day. Can you bill two E/M's for this scenario?

Same Doctor, same patient, different hospital?

So Dr. Get Around saw patient 123 at hosptial A and then on that same day patient 123 went to hospital B and randomally saw Dr. Get Around again? Wow. What a coincidence.

yes

Yes. Our doctors perform the infectious disease services at several hospitals. Rarely, but sometimes the patient transfers from one hospital to another that the doctor provides services at.
