    employment 2.jpeg

After asking why I had another C&P exam for the same condition, I was told by the VA C&P physcian that they could make a C&P exam anytime they wanted during the process, and not in any order.

He let me know who was boss!

You can help by making sure you have contacted all health care providers you've had in the past & get copies of your medical records, "before" your C&P exams are ordered.

If you have lung issues, you will need to see a respiratory specialist.

If you have spinal issues, you'll need to see an orthopedic specialist.

Thats the way it should work.

They had a nurse do all of my C&P general medical exams including neuromuscular disorder.

She didn't even look at my xrays or lab results & couldn't figure out how to write an opinion. So another C&P was ordered. When this came back fully favorable, the VARO rater ordered an IMO without examination & of course this wasn't favorable.

When I had my family Dr look over my C-file & give an opinion, the VARO & BVA completely ignored it.

Don't wait for the VA. Get all your past medical records together & sift through them for anything that will help your claim.

If it's not in your c-file "before" the VARO orders your C&P, then it won't be a part of the record & considered by the C&P examiner.

Does one C&P Doctor cover all areas?

Hearing has to be done by Audiolog.

Tinnitus has to be done by either Audiology or Neurology.

Eye Disease and Vision has to be done by an Optomotrist or Opthamologist.

Mental Health has to be done by Psychiatrist or Psychologist.

Respiratory illnesses must usually include PFT tests.

New Regs for TBI as of Oct 2008:

TBI has to be done by Psychiatrist / Psychologist / Neurologist.

Everything else can be done by

a Nurse, ARNP or PA - but is supposed to be signed off on by a doctor.

    • 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...
