First you should determine why it was necessary for the patient to see the oncologist prior to having the chemo.
If it was medically necessary, then yes, a modifier 25 would be appropriate. Not sure if a 99214 would be necessary.
I'd get the documentation and verify what happened during the visit with the doctor before allowing the E/M and chemo to go out on the same day. JMHO.
