They physician will need to clarify. Unless the ICD-10 guidelines state otherwise with a default or a NOS option, you are not a doctor, and you cannot diagnose a patient. It seems this is a major issue as a clarification was added to the 2017 guidelines which state that you cannot assign a dx based on the diagnostic criteria a physician uses to reach a diagnosis. I could have sworn similar language appeared in the 2016 guidelines.
