    Hi! per the CPT guideline for repair closure:
    "Use the codes in this section to designate wound closure utilizing staples, or tissue adhesives, either singly or in combination with each other,
    Dermabond is a tissue adhesive so you would code using the CPT repair code along with your E/M with mod 25 attached to your E/M
