The documentation that must match the billed service, is the office note not the encounter form. If the documentation is not clear then you should query the physician. If it was clearly the incorrect CPT code then why wouldn't you change it?
Why would the phyician be responsible for the correct codes? That is why there are professional coders. We allow the physician to treat the patient and we do the coding.
