  1. LHI just sent me the details for my C&P exam appointment. This is for a PTSD increase claim. I looked up the doctor and even though there wasn’t much on him I found that he is a child psychologist, doesn’t have many and good reviews, wrote a book about social justice for children with disabilities that he sells on Amazon for $12 and was deposed for his professional credentials. One review says ‘I can’t believe this guy still has his license’. I’m including a link to his creepy deposition. Where does LHI find these doctors and how can I get this changed? Do I go to VA and ask for another
  2. Odd item but back in 2015 when the rating decision came down for my husband's first claim, he downloaded his files. The C&P belonged to someone else. So, he went back to his VSO with the records and requested a copy of his c-file. The VSO listed the C&P belonging to another veteran that was in my husband's file as the main reason. This exam, that doesn't belong to him even though apparently this veteran had the same injury, is still in his c-file. Just wondering what we should do here. Has anyone experienced anything similar?
  3. Hello, I have C&P exams all in one day in January. Any advice on what to expect? Here's a synopsis on what I'm up against/working with. - PTSD increase is based off several years of VA mental health treatment and a Nexus letter written by my mental health doctor, which named PTSD, Depression, Chronic Pain Syndrome with depression, Panic D/O with Agoraphobia and survivor's guilt as a diagnosis (last 3 are recently added to records). - Knee pain- VA issued me a big knee brace and my primary care (tricare) orthopedics specialist just put me an Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO) brace b
  4. I submitted a claim and was awarded compensation for "tinittus." The award packet/letter I recv'd from VA said that they thought I was also eligible for "Hearing Loss." As a result, I submitted my claim with the same reports and test results I had from two different private Audiologist Dr.'s. I then received a call two days ago asking me to schedule a C&P exam to do a hearing test. I explained to them that I had already gone through Extensive testing with two different Dr's (Audiologist and another M.D. at a Hearing and Balance center) and submitted all of that paperwork, along with
  5. This is the latest Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide dated 20180719. The only other one I've seen is dated 2002, including the one on this website and the VA website. I got this from my claims agent, who got it from the VA. VA Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide 2 Final Corrected 20180719.pdf
  6. Why does the VA continue to make it more difficult for us to view our C&P exams? First, they took away our access to exams done by contractors and now they delay our access to exams done at VAMCs. In the not too distant past, I was able to walk into the VAMC records department, fill out a form and instantly get copies of contractor performed exams. Now the VAMC no longer gets copies of those exams. They said they used to get a courtesy copy of the exams but they no longer get them. I say B.S. I had an exam done at the VAMC on September 11, 2020. I've been checking my VAMC me
  7. My question is I finally received my Military Medical record from the VA after 17months, upon review I found the documentation of my problem with my hand joints swollen and painful. I have been seeing a Rheumatologist since 2009 when i got out after 20yrs of service. so my question is how should I submit the missing information i.e. DD FORM 2807-1 BLOCK 12 H, Swollen or Painful Joints and Block 29 12H 6 months now painful and swollen hands and finger joints, Block 30 12h, hand swelling in the AM, minimally controlled on Naproxen. This was documented January 7th 2009 during the time i
  8. I have a C&P exam coming up for my knees, While I was in service I served aboard 2 different ships, I hear that Ship board ladders are bad on your knees, I didn't start having a problem with my knees until we had our PRT test, during this time I was on recruiting duty, while I was running i slipped into a hole and fell, It was documented and I went to my private physician, he documented that there was swelling and the xray results showed Ostephytes on my left knee, it was sore for weeks, from there I feel like i over compensated for my right knee, I had knee replacement on my right knee la
  9. Hi, I am curious and thought I would ask here. I was trying to find out what my effective date is. I reached out to the DAV to find out if they would be going back to 2011 since my initial C&P exam. Here below was there response: 10/20/11, you filed a claim 1/17/12, the VA said you failed to report to exams (FTR) 4/2/12, the VA deferred decisions on your back and GERD 3/11/13, the VA denied the claims because they said you failed to report to exams in 2012 12/31/13, you filed for your back and GERD again 11/27/15, the VA denied the claim THIS IS WHERE IT
  10. I’ve done the VA claim-bit on my own. I don’t know if this is a mistake or not. I went to a c&p exam recently. I left somewhat confused. I never had a doctor tell me directly that she was recommending an increase as well as IU. She said though it was ultimately up to the rater. I don’t have her report because 30 days has not passed. I was at 50% for ptsd and 10% hearing loss. During the appointment the c&p doctor quoted a couple other reports where VA doctors I’ve seen at various clinics said that I had “long term, chronic and severe...” (Don’t want to get into the what). I find
  11. I have 4 C&P exams this Friday. All for increases. (Migraine, PTSD/depression/anxiety/chronic pain/agoraphobia, bilateral foot pain and knee pain increase [including VA issued knee brace and civilian issued AFO foot brace]). Should I have my wife ad adult kids who both witness and suffer from my mood swings, depression, anxiety and antisocial like living on a daily basis? They can also talk about my constant leg pain and migraines. I also want my supervisor to do one regarding my migraines that have me leaving work early, alot. But that is a touchy subject, because I don't want m
  12. How long does it take to get the Results of a C&P Reexamination back to the VA to work on my claim from a non VA doctor ? When can I see the results ?
  13. I just discovered that a C&P exam was held without me even knowing about it on August 16th. I just happened to see it in my Blue Button VA medical record download today. I have submitted a few claims last year. One in May and another in October. The VA combined my claims and back dated them to May 2018. The estimated completion date has jumped around 4 times. In July it jumped to an estimated completion date of 9 May 2019. At the beginning of August it jumped to 22 May 2019. It's still in the "Evidence gathering, review, and decision" phase. Does anybody know why they did
  14. Hey guys, I don't know if I'm in the right place but i was needing some clarification. After fighting with the military for six years, the C&P examiner stated that my condition precludes me from any physical occupation. I developed asthma back in 2012, while in service. Is that typical wording for pretty much everyone? I guess my English isn't that great and i would like someone to please explain to me what that entails? The examiner also stated that there is a 50% chance or greater that my injury was incurred in the line of duty, does that mean that they serv
