    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

Starting My C & P Process


Good day Hadit,

I have spent several hours reading around here, and I have to admit that I have never seen a forum where the other members are as helpful and patient as you all are here. I filed for Tinnitus, Vertigo, ROM for Neck and Pain, ROM and pain for both shoulders and wrist pain. Fortunately I have good entries in my medical records to back these up! From the time that I filed (I chose the DAV to represent me) to getting actual appointment, maybe 4 weeks went by, that was a pleasant surprise.

I had my first appointment yesterday with the ENT clinic. I was met by a MD, she was very pleasant for the hour and a half I was with her. She wanted to know all about my vertigo and tinnitus during this appointment – focusing mainly on the vertigo. She asked me questions based off of a computer and entered my response via the same.

Close to the end we spoke about my neck injuries and ended up suggesting that my neck may be contributing to my vertigo. I Googled cervical vertigo and it actually seemed to fit. Anyways, I have my “General Medicine” appointment next week and one with Audiology the week after that. I have to say, my first impression was favorable, with this particular doc… but I have read enough here to be guarded.

Time will tell – I’ll keep on reading and will add to this as the events come and go. Thanks, in advance, for any comments or suggestions.

Hi Geo4k,

Welcome to Hadit. It sounds like you had a really good exam, especially because your first doctor was very pleasant. I hope your remaining doctors are equally as nice as her. I had two C & P exams. The first one was short and lame, because the doc really did not care. The second one was more of what I expected to happen, which was a good experience which granted my SC.

Be sure to get copies of the exam results. You can go to the release of information office to get them.

Good luck!

    • 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...
