If the physician makes one injection, then fans the medication to cover both the greater and lesser occipital nerves, is it appropriate to bill both the 64405 and 64450?

I have a physician that is not as efficient....also the distance between the two injections is far to "fan". He made two separate injections: one injection for Greater Occiptal and one for Lesser Ocippital. What to code? 64405 x 2? 64405 & 64450?
