Injection and Office Visit Billed together

I have a claim where CPT 99213 was billed with modifier 24 along with a code for an injection. The medical record was submitted showing that the patient came into the office for a penile injection and the physician spent time teaching the patient how to self inject. I know that in order for an E/M code to be billed along with an injection code, the documentation must show that there is a significant and separately identifiable service, however, I am not sure if patient teaching would be considered significant and separately identifiable considering it is related to the injection.
