Well, Still No Copy Of C & P Exam

Question

Well, I took my C&P exam Dec. 6th, requested a copy on Dec 7th and as of today (Feb. 15th 2011) I still don't have a copy.

I called yesterday, and they told my that it will be done in the order it was received. Frustrating!

I got word about two weeks ago that they have denied my claim for my neck and back. (I'm going to a different forum to discuss that)

But for now, I'm just voicing my frustration over that.

My next step, may be to drive to St. Pete (from Orlando) to show up in person and request copies of my two C&P exams as well as my C-File. I don't know, is this allowed? Does it work?

I had my C&P exams here in San Antonio at one of the VA satellite clinics. After a few weeks I went to the Audie Murphy VA hospital FOIA office here in San Antonio and signed release forms to obtain the C&P exam reports. They gave them to me at that time, but if time did not allow they would have mailed them out to me. Now if you had your exams at a QTC or contracted clinic those copies you can get from your RO. I guess it depends on where you had your C&P exams.

JuanP,

Yes, don't go to the St.Pete RO for it -

Do GO to the Bay Pines VAMC next door at the hospital side

ground floor Release of Information office to request these

if you want to do it in person.

I know you can get your VAMC records from them.

I am not actually sure if you can get a complete copy of your c - file from them,

I don't remember - that probably might need to be done thru the VARO which is next door.

I think I've seen it posted before that this can be done via fax.

You need to request a copy of your C-File in writing. If you just want to look at it you have to make an appointment.

I got a runaround about getting a copy of a C&P from the VARO and the VAMC that conducted the C&P.

Finally, I was able to get a printed copy at my local VA clinic! (A contract operation, no less!) Once the C&P makes it into your electronic file, a VA medical clinic should have access.

The only fly in the ointment was that the clinic's software did not properly format columns of data that were associated with test results.

I assume that tab settings on the original vs the clinic's were the source of the problem.

It also has to do with conversion of formatted documents into text documents, since I also see this sort of thing when I convert a text file to a word file or the other way around.

    • 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.
