As long as the assistant or nurse gives the injection, you can use CPT code
90772 along with the visit code. If your office provides the B12 medication,
you would also add a J HCPCS code for the medication as well. Be careful
with this one- unless there is a documented need for the B12, ie, Pernicious
Anemia, no insurance company will reimburse for the medication or injection.
-25 modifiers are not usually needed for injections given along with the office visit.
Hope this helps.
