I hope it went okay also, and we tried to get a copy but it was not ready so when it is they are going to send it to our house.His first exam was Psyc. he spent about 2 hrs in there, he said she kept asking him if he had any kind of trauma when he was younger or was depressed before the military.Then the next one was Gen. he was pretty nice he listened to all that my husband had to say for about a hr then ordered an Xray then said he would go by the Dr notes... I hope they go by his military records and not by his Primary Care Dr... that dr said his pain in his knee is all in his head and the military said he had runners knee so we will see.. thank you all:) He got out in Dec so i was a little suprised that he was getting a C&P exam.

vista,

Good luck with everything... Some advice that has help me a ton, go with your husband to the C&P's and go in with him.. ( the psyc c&p would not let my wife in, but that ended up working in my favor since I freaked out and had a massive anxiety attack in the hallway. every question she asked me, i ended up giving her a Dr. Seuss answer without ever addressing her question.. she gave up after 15 mins. 50 GAF.. thinking back she lowballed me.. I think it was because I am not violent or suicidial.. ).

But my wife can go through my problems and how they affect me and her, and she sounds sincere.. My wife went to all of my C&P's, except for my annual, and that is the C&P that went badly.

I filed for me knee twice.. years ago my private doc said I needed surgery.. now the VA says I don't.. and it is just minor wear... The VA opinion won out because my private doc's opinion was too old.. ( so my knee improved with age ).

If you lose, go get an outside opinion, but if I am correct, the most beneficial opinion should work for your husband, since he is just out of the military.

My wife went with me to every C&P Hearing and I must say was a big help as she is much more negative than I am. She also let the examiners know that she was unimpressed with the Professionalism exhibited by VA. She can be quite intimidating.

But the truth is our spouses probably know more about the affects than we do.

    • 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...
