There are 2 sides to that.
1. You are not the clinician so whether or not they are actually doing a complete ROS is not up to you but up to the clinician. Get familiar with the diagnosis that you code, example if a pt is being seen for hypertension, obviously Cardiovascular would be listed under ROS. In terms of looking at the exam and ROS to reflect one another, it all depends on what the patient is being seen for. If a patient is being seen for lets say ear infection, it would not make sense to review say Musculoskeletal.
2. Education, education, education. Ask your physicians why do they list all ROS for every visit, you will be surprised to see that most will not know the answer to that question.
You're doing fine, keep going and take negative criticism as something positive, anywhere we coders can learn and expand our knowledge!
