  • 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

Had a biopsy done at the WPAFB Women's Clinic over 3 weeks ago. I've been bugging them for test results. Finally got the NP who did the test to call me back yesterday, but we are playing "phone tag". In her msg to me she said she had to speak with a doc first and then call me again.

I called back today, spoke to the receptionist (who normally gives out test results) and she said that the NP has my record on her desk and will call me when she is finished with clinic today.

Ugh!!!!!!!!! Why won't anyone tell me anything!!????????

Why did she have to talk to the doc first?????

I'm impatiently waiting on this call...............

Thanks Pete...When at the Base and at this appt, I gave this NP my cell phone number as my contact number and said that is the best way to contact me. Still no call on my cell. Just got home from a baseball game and guess what.

A msg on my home phone!!!! And still no results!!! All she said was: "I have the information you need, call me at this number at your earliest convenience".................OMFG.

Now I have to wait until tomorrow.

Can't she even follow simple directions??? She even wrote my cell number down on my chart before I left the day of the biopsy....and that's the only number I've ever left when I call in!!!

Finally got ahold of this NP..........Good news! All is well. She said I should have never been referred to WPAFB because the cause of my abnormal tests was something that would eventually go away on its own. I told her that because the VA doesn't have Gyn docs....they didn't even know that. They had no idea how to interpret the test results and could not even answer my most basic questions.

So I'm going to put a call in to the Dr that I had the mtg with yesterday and let him know....this is yet another reason why Dayton needs their own Gyn doc.

    • 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...
