I only use them for our podiatrist but I would suppose that if your non podiatrist physician is billing a CPT code that requires the Q modifier to be present & your non podiatrist physician is credentialed/contracted to perform & receive reimbursement for one of those CPT codes (example 11055-11057 & 11719-11721)..then a Q modifier could be valid.
You might check your specific payers your physician is contracted with to verify a Q modifier is required to be present for reimbursement of a specific CPT code.
Hope that makes sense & is of some help...
