Patient Refuse Exam

A physician sees a patient for a subsequent hospital visit. Patient with multiple chronic conditions which are uncontrolled due to noncompliance. Patient also with MH issues - patient refuses exam. MD does have face to face encounter with patient and documents vital signs and psych exam elements only. Provider codes 99233- hx is expanded, MDM is comprehensive. Can provider get full credit for exam because patient refuses a more comprehensive exam?
