  1. I agree with Mark in Texas, in fact, I plan on making a trip to see the good doc Ellis soon. Like I've said before I used Dr. Anaise. Currently I've been seeing locals, a Rheumatologist, and starting now a neurologist, until I was able to fund additional IME/IMOs. You will be better off going with Dr. Ellis than with Valor4vets! I posted the reason why on another thread and pasted my response below: If you go back to the main forum page and scroll down you will see that there is a section for IMO. Valor4vet has been posted there. One member used them, posted about it, but hasn't responded with the outcome--since appeals take years. She is a physician assistant, who after becoming one, worked for the VA as a C & P Denier to pay off her student loans. Her husband's a marine veteran (likely had her do all his IME/IMOs for free and cheated the system, so what she is married to a marine vet, they're not one of us) and helps in the office reviewing the c-file for her since she does the exams and write poorly written reports. They have a baby. They are located in Tempe down the street from Arizona State University and market to the wet behind the ears veterans that recently left the service while attending college. For me, I wouldn't spend one of my bahrain dinar on her, when the VA it self can get one of their bottom of the barrel medical school flunkies to write a bogus opinion and continue the viscous develop to deny cycle against you. "You get what you pay for." Which is why I went local with seeing a board certified specialist having this real competent private physician know my conditions for over a year and not just a Jiffy Lube McDonald's burger. And physician assistants under law aren't allow to work for themselves, they need to be under medical doctor supervision. But what about CVS and their one minute nurses?, well they got that covered with one doctor in every state to circumvent that law. So shes violating AZ law and the VA can laugh at you after you believe their fluff website and denied you again at the BVA level because you wanted it quick. Rome wasn't built in a day. General Patton said "A pint of sweat will save a gallon of blood."
  2. Yes I have a Writely (google docs) spreadsheet for each disability and the doc who will do the ime/o for that. Seems I have a re-eval C&P this monday and positive about it going well.
  3. It is very disgusting, the idiot that was doing my annual physical was fighting with me because I knew more than her and wasn't taking her crap. Sorry not sorry you just graduated from nurse practitioner school and only got this job to pay for your over price no name joke school. So she can not get her ten cent bonus lying in my med file. She still lied but it is on record and I filed a complaint to the Sec of VA. Ombudsmen are a joke--which I told them in writing: I do not need you at all and instead filing my own to the Sec VA. I have high standards, up yours. So on Jan 4th I saw retro coming. Was pleased with the small amount. Got it three days later, which was way before the Big brown envelope (it's actually white now) to see what was approved, that came on the 12th. Will be using it for the IMO that I was waiting on obtaining. The actually RO meeting with my attorney was months ago and the decisions finally came. Across the board the clown at the RO denied me on everything. No surprise! Pretty much said that I was never in the service, these injuries were from birth or afterward military service. So every idiot from QTC was in cahoots with the VA. Shaking my head, I'm at the worst RO in the country--yes the one with the death waiting list. This now allows me to see another local board certified physician. Who isn't a bottom of the barrel quack, since I can not even get proper care at the VA hospital/my VA pcp. I'm very much done with them. The outcome was denied and delayed because I'm not dead yet. (The three D's) They even denied my presumptive. The one they approved was one I never sought, this was done only to shut me up, be happy and go away to never return. So now my attorney and I are headed to the BVA. This spring, I'm going to take a trip to Oklahoma, and see the good doctor Ellis.

    IMO from Dr. Anaise, CKD

    No ZZZs, He may be right because he also had published a book (that i bought) which includes sleep apnea, so he's speaking as a VA attorney, besides a MD, and doesn't want you to go through the process only to be denied at the BVA. Go to sleep clinics and ask the Board Certified Otolaryngologist front desk if the doctor have done apnea test for military veterans? Also ask if they would do an IMO after the apnea test? If they say no find another Otolaryngologist,  that would be veteran friendly.

    IMO/NEXUS Service

    If you go back to the main forum page and scroll down you will see that there is a section for IMO. Valor4vet has been posted there. One member used them, posted about it, but hasn't responded with the outcome--since appeals take years. She is a physician assistant, who after becoming one, worked for the VA as a C & P Denier to pay off her student loans. Her husband's a marine veteran (likely had her do all his IME/IMOs for free) and helps in the office reviewing the c-file for her since she does the exams and write poorly written reports.

  6. They're cockroaches plain and simple. As soon as you turn the light on with VA laws and regulations they scatter away and back into the dark. When I do visit the RO I see them walking in during around lunch time with their badges showing security. Since dropping the DAV, for that I saw the stat percentages of them being the highest and was fooled, fooled me once, and I'm not fooled the second time! In Sept 2017, I lawyer up, I never went back and frankly don't need to with the help of this website because I HADIT! They denied me even with my three disabilities being presumptive and lowed balled me on the 4th. So now I'm claiming CUE within my IME. The nexus letter went from 12 pages to 15 for it, since, I added how CUEs are not rare at 7.23% a year, since 1994, and that the fact that I was denied within the year of getting out and still in the presumptive time frame is a violation of my CFR 4.6. I put it right above the middle of the first page and below Dear VA RO who can't read and violated my 4.6 and 3.317 rights THIS IS A CUE. Also here's Johnny with the Writ of Mandamus! (thank myself for taking that addition how to write research papers course in college) It reminds me of playing NES Legend of Zelda as a child and the designers of the game taught me about the real world. People are lazy and if they can get away with being lazy they damn well will be until you put the spot light on them.

    IMO/IME QUESTION

    Look for a orthopedic surgeon DO. Which would allow you to stick with one specialist for both your knees and spine. Go see the chiropractor once a month for the IME, after 6 months, go see the orthopedic surgeon DO. The DO then can give you a heavily weighted and solid opinion off of the physical exams from the chiropractor that has been seeing you for 6 months doing all the foundation (dirty but necessary) work. This is what I have done. Think of it as writing a 5 pages essay. You know the ending. The chiropractor and you can get the rough draft out of the way, then move on to the DO, where the DO can polish it, until it turns into the final, and then publish it. Sit and wait until it does a Mike Tyson TKO to the VA at the BVA. You will have time to complete this as you have to wait for the appeal process. The VA will be hard pressed (and lose once the BVA sees that) with their Doctor who (no pun intended to Dr. Who of Gallifrey) graduated from the University of Youtube with a medical degree in Geocities. Don't forget to file a compliant with the Whitehouse VA hotline against the VA C & P examiner and your local Region Office rater since both "development to deny" for their ten cent bonus.
  8. Start seeing a private physician in your town, might take a while to find one that is vet friendly, and talk to their front office. Can't judge a book by the cover until you scratch the surface. I googled specialist I wanted to see, ie orthopedic surgeon, neurologist, etc. Good luck
  9. 4,300 VA Employees Fired, Demoted, or Suspended for Negligence Under Trump WASHINGTON—Some 4,300 Veterans Affairs (VA) workers have been demoted, fired, or suspended since President Donald Trump took office, Vice President Mike Pence told a room of veterans caregivers on Nov. 26. https://www.theepochtimes.com/4300-va-workers-fired-demoted-suspended-for-negligence-under-trump_2724418.html Good!
  10. Well its the Regional Office, they are nothing but clowns in the circus, and do clown tricks to trick you. But once you are at the BVA they can read. So start saving up for a IMO by a private psych whose Vet friendly.
  11. First off I have heard of all of these docs years before signing up for this sight, and should have "bit the bullet with paying for them" as well as "drop your VSO and lawyer up" -- Vallette, Anaise, Bash, and Ellis. I have an IMO from Anaise since he is a transplant surgeon. As Berta mentioned Bash is a neuro-radiologist. And is the most costly for that he is the most famous with the VA and veterans/Internet, and if you do most of the leg work, then forward it to him, the cost would be a lot smaller and in range of the ones mentioned above. Berta did that with Bash. As I did with Anasie then had him make it medically professionally sound with his stamp. While Ellis is an internalist. Vallette is for psych. These 4 are the most well knowned here at Hadit. But I also mentioned previously that there are others out there that may be Vet friendly, just have to look and find them, and then report back in the IMO subsection of this forums. Each one is a specialist in their field. So you want to go with the one that is closest to what you need. Which is why I went with Anaise, who is in my state, with one of my main disabilities. And currently sought local for some so that my work insurance pays for the doctor's paycheck, while I pay for the office visits, and built up some time with these locals. I paid 2k on a local Neuropsychologist for his exam, instead of having it done poorly at the VA, and this would later help with the Neurologist IMO. That said the VA would be harder to deny these locals that actaully performed physical exams over couple years than a ten minute C&P exam by a quack that was the very bottom of their medical class and paid by the VA. I found one MD whose a neurologist and his IME with Opinion is 3500. While another neurologist opinion would be 750 per hour so about 1.5k to 2.5k.
  12. Unless there are other members here from Washington State, I think you are going to have to do some leg work, and make a list of the types of doctor's speciality you're looking for. Orthopedic, neuro, knee, transplant surgeon, internalist, etc. And do a google search with your city and see the list, jout them down, visit their office, and talk to the front desk about having veteran experience or are willing to start. Come back and let us know with the results.
  13. THIS statement is so true. And completely reminds of playing Nintendo's Legend of Zelda as a child when it first came out. Japanese really knew the way of life and exactly how the world actually operates. First playing the game, you get the sword from the old man, then he vanishes, and he tell's you "take this sword because the VA is dangerous to go at it alone" and then wonder around until you find Death Mountain to conquer the boss Ganon (VA.) You find Level 9 (Death Mountain aka the RO) only to be told that you are DENIED entrance/VA compensation. For a very good reason--you're not ready, because all you have is a basic sword, boomerang, bombs, and a candle. And you don't know anything about 38 CFR, thinking your congress person would be of help and you cry a river (I avoid dealing them with VA matters) because you don't really understand what their job is, a c-file, disability codes, the levels of the VA (RO>>BVA>>CAVC), Vet attorneys because you were brought up thinking lawyers are bad (not hire them) and they are not, C & P exams done by incompetents who are paid by Ganon/VA to lie to you, raters at the RO primary job is to deny/delay/until you die, IMOs or IMEs, DBQs, Nexus letters, Veteran Friendly independent doctor experts, the two websites that are on the WWW, VSOs, and every blue moon one veteran gets a pass to completely avoid this "game" to look good for publicity for the public on donating to VSOs So then you have to play the Game. Going through all the areas, figuring out things, and beating each mini-boss. Dying countless times as you get to harder and harder enemies and stages of the game. The old man and lady give you very basic things--the sword, a map or letter, and a tip or two. Maybe you save up and buy ((pay to play better)) a better controller, the strategy guide, and talk your friend/classmates that have the game too. Or ask you parents to have permission to the official 1-900 number for tips to your problems (I never called neither did the people I knew because you're paying for it.) This allows you to get a better picture of how the programmers created this game/adventure. The old man in the beginning of the game is you decades later. So you went full circle and tell some young vet like yourself at one time "take this..."
  14. How do I do that? Call the RO, the 1800# or the Blue button? I'm going to do that with my current claim. For the fact that I had a IMO by Dr. Anaise who is a expert-surgeon (like Dr. Bash, where the VA knows these few Wonderful Private Experts, Anaise also lives in my state--which is why I went with him) compared to the bottom of the medical school barrel hack that did my C&P exam, read the IMO, and wrote a bunch of dates saying your blood work was normal and according to the ER physician assistant that never even knew I was military said my secondary injury (current claim) to my spine SC was congenital. So now I'm going to the BVA with attorney because I lawyer-ed up and "had it" and don't want to continue to be "the guy" in the song of Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen. Well this is a double edge sword. Many want to have half the VA fired for gross negligence/incompetence. And Trump is cleaning house--which means more privatization. That is why I am trying to do as many C&P exams by private medical experts to avoid this VA Game of Deny, Delay, and Die already veteran; before we dispense compensation for your military injuries.
  15. They stacked the deck against me. What is the CFR law that says they can't do this but they are doing it intentional, not the 4.3 Resolution of reasonable doubt.? The first C&P exam was a physican assistant that use to work for my MD who resigned the day after hearing Trump won the election. And acourse she denied me saying that it wasn't caused from a SC issue. So then I had to wait until I got funds for the IMO from Dr. Anaise the specialist, and the 2nd C&P examiner basically did a timeline of all the poisons they feed me and said it wasn't from that but agreed with the physician assistant who never read my c-file or even knew I was in the military stated that it was congenital. Really. So the entrance exam MD would have found it. The MD for the overseas duty exam would have found it if I had it since birth. It was only discovered until I bleed out in 2015 and thought I finally meeting up with the Grim Reaper. So now I have to get a second IMO from a specialist who is very much like Dr. Anaise to counter this BS, which made me think of my grandfather's brass weight scale. That said can I put and add 38 CFR laws and rulings in the private DBQ + examined from my private Specialist for two years and his Opinion for the other claim that got denied? I'm going to have twice the pages of that 4 page DBQ has with CFRs so they will SUFFOCATE at the RO level. Twice? No...it SHALL be a minimal of three times -- 12 pages. Currently been working on those dozen pages! Going to have them get hit with a Mike Tyson TKO. And send a certified copy of it to the main office, Office of General Counsel (OGC), that Berta always brings up.
