I personally would not give credit to the doctor for the tests, unless it is specifically documented that the doctor ordered them.
If your doctor is indeed in charge of "directing" the other staff he should document as such, and then I would allow credit...even if it said "we ordered a ..whatever.... to determine..whatever...."
I think if you are truly having trouble determining who stepped in where, then you shouldn't give credit. The record should be clear.
