It's a good thing you aren't around me when a doc's office does stuff like that!! "A charge" for phone consults is one thing, but $60 for every 5 minutes?!?!? And as the others have said, you didn't place the call or request it??? Then it should be on their dime and not yours. Ohhhh, that stuff just brings out the wrong side of me!!
Good for you though for standing up like you did!!!
When I started with my doc, she had never treated anyone that knew they had Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia, RMSF, and the rest of the 'gang', and yet I have healed. It's not an easy road to walk when neither you or your doc is that familiar with these diseases, but it can be done if you are up to the task of educating them when they need the help!
