This is not acceptable attestation for the teaching physician for Medicare.
Google "primary care exception" and you'll get information telling you what the lower levels of EM that can be used under this exception.
In our practice (pediatrics) if the patient is covered by Medicare (rare) or Medicaid (more common) we adhere to the requirement that the TP was present and participated. If the patient is covered by commercial insurance, we allow the kind of statement you have indicated.
Hope that helps,
