pryorrd

Question

Hello,

I had my C&P exam for sarcodiosis, almost three months ago and here recently the va rater ask for a medical opinion from a va docotor and he said the following: I am been ask if I agree with the opinion given by bash 10/08, he state evidence that she had sarcoid while in service, he speculate that changes was sucequesly diagnosed as sarcoidosis must have begin while in service. I did not find evidence to support this. In the service finding dr bash sites wheezing and path cervial nodes are non specific and my be seen in upper respiratory infection which she also suffered after these finding, she had normal chest x-ray 06/90 at separation, she states no problems asthma, it is clear she had sarcoid after service I can’t resolve when the issue of when sarcoid begin without speculation.

Please provide me some feed back on this. I am currently awaiting rating decision.

Thanks

You need to find out what the Doc is that rendered this opinion that refutes Dr Bash. You should also copy Dr Bash and see what he has to say.

This is a bad opinion but you need to gear up and fight it. Dr Bash should help you.I would research the VA Doc's credentials

Go to your states Medical Licensing link on the internet.

Usually something like The Department of Professional Regulation.

Find a link on it for look up license.

Not to hijack, but holy cats!

I just found out that my VA psychiatrist got his medical degree here:

Out of the country medical/veterinary school!

This doesn't mean anything, right? I shouldn't be concerned, right?

Pyrorrd, did you retype the statement from the VA Doc in a hurry, or were those typo's in the statement? Aren't most C & P examiner's Nurse Practitioners or Physician's Assistants? Why would it even be conceivable that the VA would take their word over a MD or a Specialist?

I think that you paid Dr Bash to give an opinion to help you and he did. It seems that he should take a look at C&P and Doc's at VA opinion and shred it for you.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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
