It is not unusual for a doctor to prescribe something as a result of a preventive visit. If the problem is limited, it is considered to be a part of the preventive workup. From the little information you have given, it seems a preventive visit was the intent, so you should leave it as is as long as services performed meet this level of CPT code.
