All MDs fill out a billing code sheet (the codes come from the ICD10, which is International Classification of Disease)and are how Doctors support the time they charge for. These must be coded to allow billing.

Fibromyalgia M79.7
IBS K58.0 (with diarrhea)
IBS K58.9 (without diarrhea)

This took 30 seconds on Google. The Doctor is being lazy and giving you the runaround.
