    Default consult/ consultation ?

    If you visit a doctor, do you have a "consult" or a "consultation" ? Or are both words possible ?

    *not a teacher*

    'consult' is a verb. I consulted my doctor.
    "consultation' is a noun. I had a consultation with my doctor.
    I've never seen 'consult' used as a noun.
