Look like an Annual Gyn Exam to Me

Looks like an annual gyn exam. I would only code this using a preventive exam code.
Basically all of this visit was just as the preventive medicine codes state: age and gender appropriate history, examination, counceling/anticipatory guidance/risk factor reduction interventions, and the ordering of laboratory/diagnostic procedures.
As Skenyon stated this is strictly a preventive visit only, I"m unclear as to where someone picked out an e/m as well as the preventive piece.
