Question

I HAVE BEEN IMPATIENT LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE,BUT I DO WANT TO SAY I DO HAVE SOME COMPASSION FOR THE PEOPLE WORKING THE CLAIMS . WHEN I WENT FOR C&P I HAD TO GO THROUGH BASEMENT WHERE THEY KEEP PEOPLES CLAIM FOLDERS AND WAS SHOCKED TO SEE STUFF THAT HAD JUST COME IN FEDERAL EXPRESS JUST THAT ONE DAY. THE LADY WAS HAVING A LITTLE DIFFICULTY FINDING MINE. SHE SEEMED UPSET AND I TOLD HER IT WAS OK I DIDNT MIND COMING BACK. SHE SAID WELL I MIND,SHE SOON AFTER FOUND IT . BUT I COULD TELL SHE TOOK HER JOB SERIOUSLY. HOWEVER THERE ARE ALWAYS GOING TO BE A FEW BAD APPLES IN SOMETHING BIG AS DEPT VETERANS AFFAIRS. ANY WAY I JUST THOUGHT EVEN THOUGH I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR YEARS I WOULD EXPRESS MY FEELINGS ABOUT THEM.

I am like you, I have met some very nice VA employees.

The PhD Psyhologist who did my first C&P

was the highest of intergrity.

Too bad the VA spoiled it all, by deciding to go for another

C&P and shoot him down.

They brought in two big guns.

In the end the PhD Psychologist won at the BVA level.

Honesty is the best policy.

I too used to have the feeling that most VA workers had altruistic notions. After two years (which I know is not abnormally long in the VA processing world) I think differently.

Yes, there are some who are great; however, many aren't even close to that level.

JMO,

I have had some excellent and very compassionate VAMC employees

that provided services to me.

I have had some real SOB VA employees at the Regional office.

I make it a point to send a compliment via IRIS when my spouse or I get good service from a VA employee, be it a doctor, nurse, examiner, the 1-800-827-1000 service officer, or the cashier.

In my opinion, with all the negative press out there for the VA, I'm sure the really good employees who are honestly trying to make a difference appreciates it. :P

I also send compliments when I receive good service. Not that this is the reason I do it, but I believe that the man in charge of the regional office knows I mean it and I always get good service. I should also say, that if something goes wrong, I also send a message.

YEAH WHEN I FIRST STARTED OUT I WAS VERY RUDE ,SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE I FOUND GOD AND CHANGED MY WHOLE PERSPECTIVE ON A LOT OF THINGS.I WAS ANGRY , PART OF MY ILLNESS. AND I STILL HAVE TO WATCH MYSELF, AND REALISE OTHER PEOPLE HAVE FEELINGS TOO. JUST BECAUSE THINGS ARE NOT GOING MY WAY,IS NO REASON TO TAKE IT OUT ON THE WORLD.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
