Dr. A asks Dr. B to consult a patient. Dr. A sends all notes and records to Dr. B. Can Dr. B use Dr. A's notes for the HPI, ROS, PFSH, exam, etc?

No, the provider must obtain those by way of his/her staff or directly servicing the patient. Those elements (using someone else's notes) are tallied in the MDM segment of the E/M service.

Thanks kevbshields, that's what I thought, just wanted to make sure.
