I have several questions please regarding registered dietician services.
1. Can 97802 - 97804 be billed by a M.D. or are these codes for dieticians only?
2. Can the dietician's services be billed under the physician's name? If they can be, do we use an E&M code or codes 97802 - 97804?

Ans 1: CPT code 97802 97804 can only be billed by the licensed nutritionist, registered dietician, or other qualified licensed health professionals such as nurses who are trained in nutrition.
Ans 2: If physician provided diet related services, he should use proper E&M codes.
