I think I'm over thinking this but want to be sure.My question is about the order of diagnosis for a patient who came in to have a nail trim done with a systemic condition, I understand how to place the diagnosis codes in a certain order if there isn't a systemic condition by reviewing the LCLs for routine foot care. The provider performed a diabetic foot exam and trimmed all toenails and billed it this way:

E11.51
B35.1
L60.0
11719 - Q8

Would it be correct to first code the reason why the patient came in, followed by the systemic condition?

B35.1
E11.51
L60.0
11719 - Q8

Thank you for any suggestions.
