  • 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

Vamc Sepulveda - Questions

Recommended Posts

VAMC Sepulveda

I presently live in the Philippines, however, next year about this time will be taking an extended vacation to the Ventura County area in CA. Wondering if anyone has had any experience, good or bad, with VAMC Sepulveda? All the usual questions apply so I can get a feel for first time checking in procedures and getting all of my appointments started. What is the usual wait time for an initial PCP visit?

Any information on the drive, especially time, from VC to the VAMC would also be appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks Pete53, good info but what I was looking for was that veteran personal touch, you know the 'Been There Done That' sorta thing.

Actually guess I should have called it West Los Angeles Healthcare Center, located at 11301 Wilshire Blvd.

Over the years I have heard good things about VA in Southern California. I bet its better than what you have now.All I can speak to is Texas CA's and thankfully they are improving.

Pete53, thanks for your reply. Here in the PI we don't have a VAMC only an OPC meaning NO INPATIENT care and you are only treated for S/C disabilities.

I started going to OPC, Manila in 1996 and I thought for the most part it was excellent. The doctors and staff are pretty much the same and I like that as they have always cared. Over the years there have been many changes, some just for the sake of change, but we now have a new Clinic Manager and he seems alright, we veterans are expecting a turn around in some of the 'SOP' previously implemented. Wish us luck Brother.

    • 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...
