    employment 2.jpeg

Has This Happened To Anyone?

Question

Arrived at C & P Exam and was met by Dr. and his first statement was You here again Mr. xxxxx ?

4th exam with this same Dr. Two of his decisions were overturn by Regional Office. because he didn`t look at all of the evidence.

During exam he was rude, and didn`t ask any questions. Forced me to the point I could not take the pain anymore in Range of motions on my leg I had to stop. This C & P was ordered again for certification for the BVA.

I received the report of the exam from the hospital yesterday. He lied. Incorrect date when condition started,

Knee range of motion 0 to 190 degrees? I thought ROM was 0 to 150

negative anterior drawer and lachman test

negative McMurray test -- this test was also performed two weeks before by physical medicine and they gave me a steroid injection in the knee

but what he wrote in this report is very disturbing. " The patient appeared to have symptom magnification during the left knee exam". " The patient appeared to have symptom magnification during the left ankle exam". I had to look that up. He then says " Aging and overweight play a significant role in causing degenerative changes in the left ankle. Overweight also plays a role in causing pain in the left knee."

His current left knee and ankle conditions are less likely as not a result of hallux valgus or surgery related to left hallux valgus".

No mention of my Left lumbar radiculopathy SC 10% or Lumber disc Herniation L3-4 and L5-S1 SC 10%. I am getting info together to support this claim. But what do I do?

I believe he discrimated against me. AGE and Weight. And also I believe he slandered me. Symptom Magnification.

You need an independent medical opinion. I was accused of faking it after a mental health exam. I went out and got some opinions of my own. I got my money.

I could be wrong, but I thought remands for C&P exams were not supposed to go back to the same doctor. Your doc was an ass.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
