Does anyone have any links to sites where you can check if your VA Doctor(s) - (or C&P examiner-mine was a nurse practitioner) have any board complaints or malpractice claims?

Check with your local medical society. It's my understanding that complaints against VA doctors are filed with the Boards of Medical Examiners in the states where the practictioner is licensed or in the state where s/he practices if an out-of-state license. VA doesn't license doctors and other HCPs, but they do "credential" them.

You can check Healthgrades site too- it costs about 7 bucks I think-

They dont have too much there but I helped a vet knock down a VA C & P doc that they believed over a real expert IMO doc opinion- by finding at healthgrades that the C & P doc was no where near the qualifications of the expert.I copied printouts of both docs.

For this claim I also got a copy from the net a copy of info on a big symposium where the vet's IMO doc gave a major lecture on diabetes.- what the vet was claiming- and the vet -after 12 years- finally got his proper award.

Still waiting to hear- the VA wanted to pay his CAVC awyers 8,000 of his retro-

I think I got it down to 4,000-we filed a NOD- there is a 5 point criteria the CAVC lawyers have to fulfill- and they didnt fulfill that.

    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?”
