What is the correct code for physician consult with parent without child/patient present?
The reason for the visit can range from ADD, development delays etc.
I have researched and found using e/m codes, but I question that.
I thought it would be 90837. Please comment.

There is no code for consults without the patient present. It is a not a billable service. :(
