    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

Just Got Home From C&p Exam

Question

Good afternoon, I had an exam today at 1:15. It was done by a nurse for a chronic issue I have had due to my service connected medications. I handed the nurse my IMO from my VA doc and she said it was already in my notes and didn't need to read it. I was like "HUH?" I then said, "This is a letter that the doc did off the chart, not in notes." She read it and she said, "well, I will look at the notes." I could tell she didn't want to read because of her attitude. She said, MMMMMMMM. Looks like you might have an issue here. I said, Darn right, and it's been going on for over a year now.

I then started to explain my symptoms and how often they occur and she interrupted me and said, "I will ask the questions." I said OK that's fine. Man, she did not want to hear my complaints at all.

I've had such bad experiences with these examiners I don't trust any of them as far as I can throw a piece of hair.

I thank Hadit for making me more knowledgable on how the examiners try to control these exams to their best interests. I can't express how important it is to make sure these exams are done right the first time. They take too long to get to not make sure they are done right.

Frank,

I am relating my experience with one of my last C&P exams a year ago:

I started telling the psychologist all of my issues, and he stated "I will be asking the questions and you are to answer the questions, understand?" I was pretty sure that He was an arse and this would be a bad C&P for me.

Come to find out that after I got a copy of the C&P, He wrote a favorable for SC with a GAF of 53 that day.

Not saying that this is your case but, their workload is as such that they control the C&P as to answer the required questions that the VA has to have, and of course some are complete arses.

I had this one C&P doctor who said he could not evaluate me for IU because I was not working. This is the kind of crap that makes me always keep a few doctors on the payroll to write my medical reports.

Wow, sounds like you had someone who had already made up their mind about your case and didn't want to hear about anything else. At my last C&P for Soc. Sec., I had a psychiatrist, who was kind of the same way. He asked questions for a half an hour, didn't really want my opinions, and I was out the door. The NOVA lawyer I have says that is because the psychiatrist is being paid by Soc. Sec., and if he rates too many people as qualified, then Soc. Sec. will not keep him on the books.

I am thankful that I will get an IMO prior to my appeal at BVA and ALJ.

    • 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...
