A patient comes in to see the doctor for wound dressing for a laceration on his finger. Suture was already done on the finger at the emergency room before the patient came to see the doctor for the wound dressing.
The doctor writes laceration as the diagnosis and did a wound dressing on the finger. What's the cpt code for the wound dressing?

There is not a code for wound dressing you would assign the appropriate E/M level for the visit based on the documentation.
Hope this helps.
