I agree with you, how can the physician get any information from the patient if she's under anesthegia and at least 2 of the 3 elements of this exam would not be done. He can't possibly have a comprehensive history, and how can he get a comprehensive examination if she can't answer him?
I can't see how he can possibly approve charging this. Just my two cents.
