If they have someone reason to doubt the accuracy or completeness of the information you provided them, or believes that after a month, an update is appropriate, yes: an employer is entitled to confirm the existence of the condition(s) claimed to require FMLA leave, and if there is no rule or law saying that they have to take the first information you provide as the final and complete answer.
