What the physician said to you is based on his belief. You know as much as I do that there are other factors that determine a service of that level. Yes you may have a comprehensive history, comprehensive exam, but what about medical decision making or medical necessity? Remember, medical necessity should be the driving factor for the visit. Does this doctor order a round of tests or review and summarize old records for all his new patients? Is the diagnosis that he is dealing with complex? These are things to keep in mind...
Good luck :0)
