    Overweight
    Exercise/diet d/w pt ... I have spoken with Jacop frankly how these new nedical problems, mainly high chol & high BS are both related to being overweight & may resolve if he's able to loose weight ...
    Proteinuria
    May be related to early DM vs HTN ... he already takes benazepril in lotrel

    My concern is this;if it's ACCEPTABLE if the Provider will not mention the chronic illnesses in the HPI BUT will state the status of those chronic illnesses in the TREATMENT PLAN like for example as stated above as: HTN =STABLE.ETC.
    By the way this visit has COMPLETE ROS AND PHY.EXAM.

    In this scenario, we can consider. But in any case we get 99214. You have Comp PE and MDM - Moderate which suffices for 99214
    Thanks,
