  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Vascular Clinic

Recommended Posts

The VA has sent me to 3 different vascular clinics in the last year. 61 percent clogged in my neck.

Now they have made me an appointment for a 4th.

This should be good for some laughs.

NO! your third year medical students may not cut on me...

The buttheads won't even give me my pain meds for me trashed joints that they tell me need to be replaced or the ptsd medications.

I'm not supposed to drive more than 15 miles, according to the VA ortho prick, and the new appointment is 5 hours away on the interstate.

Why me Lord?

In my last incarnation I musta been a real bad dude.

You need to get something done. Don't let the VA stall any longer.

If you have medicare go to a real doctor and get this thing fixed. The VA in my hometown kills vets just about every week with neglect. It is in the newspaper every other day. Two major VAMC's in my area, and yet they kill vets by not supplying them with the treatment they need by just forgetting about them. What you have to get in your head is they don't care if you live or die. If you die while waiting they will send your spouse an apology if she raises hell with a senator. They killed a vet here recently and the spouse got an "oops, sorry" and that was it.

I figured out a long time ago that the VA medical staff does not have our needs as their first priority.

Last night on 'ER' a doctor told an intern that you can't become a great doctor until you have killed a patient.

I'm not giving any Bozo at the VA his chance to become great at my expense.

I guess I'm not as patriotic as I used to be.

I checked with my 'real' doctor today.

He is taking the correct steps to find out exactly where I stand and what treatment may be required.

So far he thinks I'm not in need of any treatment over an above what I'm doing now.

We went over all of my medications and figured out that the local pharmacy is ripping me off for over 200 bucks a month.

The doctor ordered a particular dosage that the pharmacy says I can only get by buying 2 different batches.

The doctor explained how and why the medication can be administered through the purchase of 'one' batch.

It amounts to cutting pills but the medication is a topical cream. Male hormone.

I'm going to change pharmacies because they have pulled this crap on me before on another medication.

Fool me twice and I'm the fool.

I'm also in the process of changing VA primary care doctors too.

My wife takes care of the books here as the result of my 'past mental history' and she is always going through the roof over what the VA refuses to supply me with.

My first appointment is tomorrow.

On another note, my daughter turned down a lot more money that the VA offered her if she would go to work for the VA. They inquired as to why? She related that her Dad is a disabled vet and that she could not work for an organization that treated the patients so badly. That ended the conversation.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
