Do you mean how long you have to wait to get the exam or how long the exam wil be time wise? My exams usually lasted about 10 minutes. As to how long you will have to wait, God knows, but I would think probably a year.

My husband has an exam scheduled for next month, so just wondering how long the exam itself would last. It said knew GAF, so I thought that would take awhile but I don't know.

Thanks,

Mental C&P exams can really go fast as the doctor just asked me a few questions and took a look at me and that was it. Unless the vet is really out of it I don't know how a C&P doctor can really do an assessment of a person's mental status in 10 minutes but that is exactly what they do. If you have a recent IMO that is a good time to give it to the doctor doing the exam.

Thanks John,

My husband just had an appt. friday with mental health through the VA and the person he sees told him about the scheduled C&P before he was notified in the mail. She also told him that she knew the dr. doing the exam and had known her for 20 yrs. and she told him to take some printed matierial (that he had given her) and give it to the dr. at the C&P. Have you ever heard of this procedure?

Thanks for your help

I think that your husbands Mental Health Person is trying to help him. That is a good sign.

    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?”
