You don't get any clear cut ones, do you?
The doctor is sending some pretty mixed messages about the chest pain - I can't tell you how the nitro fits in...Really, the "non-cardiac" is probably irrelevant, since the doctor used the word "suspect" (assuming this is outpatient)...Can't code for suspected conditions - only definitive Dx, or signs/symptoms. So back to the drawing board...The RCA may be a relevant comorbidity, although I still don't see a way to fit the stent into the MDM. Anyways, I think you're safe with a 99214 and Dx codes you mentioned.
Reading the note on the Anorexia patient - I can see why you're unsure. So there's no mention of any psych treatment recommendations? It's odd to me that the doctor would prescribe medication to treat a loss of appetite without dealing with the psychiatric aspect of anorexia, if he was referring to anorexia nervosa.
