The C&P Doc doesn't know anything about you before you get in his/her office. I had a C&P last week that I feel went great. I took copies of X-Rays, X-Ray reports, copies of my doctor's reports, etc. I highlighted the important parts. The C&P Doc told me he wished every vet would do the same thing. It makes his job so much easier.

While I was sitting there he dictated his report and it included comments from my own doc's.

Also, if he moves your legs or touches your knees, say OW!

You have about an hour to show them the impact that your injury has on your day to day life. I suggest that if you take pain meds, you stop taking them the day before the exam. Remember you want him to see your injury at its worst, and pain meds ease the pain. Also, bring copies of all submitted documents, because you might have stuff that "never" made it into your file. Make sure to wear the braces.

JMO,

Guess what?? The exam was for my hernia!!! WOW.... They said the others will be scheduled later.

Sheesh!! :unsure:

The doc said they purposely dont put in the notice as to what the exam is for so vets dont "prep" for it.

    • 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...
