C&p Exam Clinicians Guide 9.4

Question

Would there be a CUE if the following is not followed in a C&P Exam of this type? Only one doctor did my exam back in 1981. Very little information was entered by the Doctor. He did not note any my complaints in the exam report. This is what the guide states must happen at the exam please see bolded item.

Thanks in advance

C&P Exam Clinicians Guide 9.4

What needs to be reported about anatomical loss or loss of use of a creative organ and why?

The examination must include the following information:

a. The details of loss of a creative organ may be in the medical records, but the examiner should still describe lost and remaining portions of the penis, scrotum, and testes.

b. Impotence, sterility, or retrograde ejaculation should always be described and the cause named (e.g., Peyronie's disease causing impotence or TURP for BPH causing retrograde ejaculation). If a vasectomy was performed, the examiner should report when it was done and the reason.

c. With impotence, the report should indicate whether it is constant, whether it is permanent, what treatment is used, and the effectiveness of treatment in allowing intercourse.

d. With penile deformity, whether erectile function is wholly or partially lost should be reported.

e. Examination for testicular atrophy must be conducted by at least two examiners. The size and consistency of the testis should be recorded. Reduction in size should be described as reduction to one-third or one-half normal size, or even less, for example. If only one testis is affected, the size of the unaffected testis should be recorded. The etiology of the atrophy should be reported.

In short the answer is no. No Cue would exist in this case. The only argument you would have is inadequate exam which should have been approached shortly after the exam.

Keep in mind a guide is a guide and not law. Cue only exist when there is a failure to comply with law (as cue is a legal issue). Although there is no CUE successful arguments of inadequate exams have been resulted in re-exams and the award of a claim. However, such an argument would have to had been made at the time or shortly after the exam.

    • 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...
