If the pediatrician also did wound cleaning and dressing with gauze for abcess (icd 9 682.9). What cpt code would I choose for the wound cleaning and dressing for the abscess (icd 9 682.9) and what modifier should I append to the wound cleaning and dressing cpt code?

Wound cleaning and dressing are not separately billable. It include under appropriate E/M visit code.
