Question About Va Doctors Terminology...



I was diagnosed with Glaucaoma by 2 va eye dr.s and went to the heas specialist in glaucoma who said that the other two were wrong and that I didn't have glaucoma which was a relief to me. So when I went to my neuroligst I told him what had happened and that the first diagnoses were wrong...one of them being a C and P Dr. and that I was more than disturbed by the false diagnosis. He looked at me funny and I got a report on his examination weeks later. He stated that " I am concerned that this patient seeks diagnoses...."

Well yes I imagine we all want diagnosis that are coreect....somehow I think this is code for something else...dos anyone no what they mean when they say "seeks diagnosis"

If you can afford about 30 bucks I'd suggest you have an appointment with a

non-va Optometrist and have a check-up. They will refract you for any visual correction you might need, check out your retina's and measure your inter-occular

pressure for a glaucoma screening. Lots of peice of mind for a small fee.

Good luck,

Its a shame that a Veteran cannot get the truth from the VA.

The VA is professional at obscuring the truth. This is what they do for a living. They are always afraid the truth will start trouble or cost someone their job. They lie and deny by instinct.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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?”
