CLW:

Call around to the Social Security Lawyers and ask them who they use. You can also call a few Doctors office and ask them if they can help and how much they charge. Someone here got insurance to pay for theirs.

My Doc had to retire he had an eye disease and could not see.

Ask your Therapist at VA if they will help you, It never hurts to ask.

If you are not working have you asked for TDIU? Do you get Social Security? Everything adds up.

Very true about the VA therapists and psychiatrists. Also ask the Chief of the Department to review your records and write one for you. Ask for everything at once, if that's what you want. IU & P&T....as long as you have the medical evidence to support it. That way you don't have to go back later and ask. (worked for me)

As Pete said---can't hurt to ask.

My VA therapist did my IMO and got my original claim granted. I think the VA gives their own more weight than independent doctors that mainly do imo's. Your treating doctor already should know your history and your current situation so that helps considerably.
