Went To Va To Pick Up Copies Of Cand P


matt

Question

So had a C and P for PTSD and Feet back on June 24th. Called and asked if I could pick up copies of the c and p, they said sure. I went to the Va where the C and P's were conducted. I was told that I could not have a copy for the PTSD, until the Dr released it. I was like huhhhh? Didn't make any sense. But ehy did give me the one for the feet so here it is:

Physical Exam:

Patient can wiggle his toes without pain. There is no foot edema. Gait is normal. He has mild bilateral heel calluses. Peripheral pulses are grade 2+. he doe snot have hammertoes. he has mild flatfoot, both weight bearing and non weightbearing, bilaterally. Achilles tendon are mobile and nontender to palpation. he has a mild amount of midfoot malalignment and no forefoot malalignment. This is true bilaterally. He has 10 degrees of hallux vargus bilaterally. He is tender to palpation under his heels bilterally and mid arch bilaterally and under the 4th metarsal on the left.

impression:

bilateral planter fasciitis

bilateral pes planus

X-rays show left foot pes planus hammer toes and posterior continual spur, right foot shows pes planus posterior calcaneal spur and possible old trauma to the lateral malleolus.

Opinion: I have been asked for an opinion if the patient's current bilateral pes planus is at least likely as likely as not a continuation of problems in the military.

the patient was seen for bilateral pes planus in 2001 and planter fasciitis is listed on is report of medical history dated 2005. the planter fasciitis is noted to be chronic. Given this, i would state that his current foot pain is most likely a continuation of the foot pain noted in the military.

So we shall see what comes of this..actaully i was happy that at least the VA can see that I do have feet problems....i would love to just start over with a new set of feet, but that isn't an option, but at least the examinier can see the problems I am having and x-rays don't lie.....

Matt,

Good for you.

Yes, in some instances the Psychiatrist holding the C&P for your PTSD has to release the write up.

Something about being harmful to you.

Check back later to see if they have been released.

I just had a C&P exam and when I went to the ROI office, to get a copy, was told C&P exam copies need to be released by the VBA/veterans service center(VSC), as the ROI office can't release them. I went to theVSC and they're sending me a copy when it's completed by the examiner.

Matt,

The same thing happened to me. I went to get a copy of my C&P results and the lady gave me a copy.

I did not agree with what was said about me, so I filed a complaint with the patient advocate.

This did not go over too hot, so the doctor doing the examination, went in and posted not to release

the records to me.

To late for her, for I already had a copy.

Strange things do happen.

I went back later and did get another copy and saw where she had back tracked and placed that in the

records below the date of the exam.

I am sure they will get a copy to you.

Always,

Betty

If you have a Doc you can request that they be released to the Doc and than they have to comply. Or wait and see what they decide. Usually when they refuse to release its an exam that is in your favor.

From what I see you will get something out of this as you have a compensatable condition linked to service.

Good Luck

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
