Diagnostic Limited ultrasound
Please use a separate procedure note. This allows for better tracking with billing and QA.
Start a procedure note when you place your order. You will not forget this way.
If you do not know how to document what you are scanning, do not make up a note. This confuses our coders and it results in long email chains that take up time.
