    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Question

I recently went to my first VA appt after retireing from the Army, the appt was to get me in the system and for me to meet my new doctor. After the appt my doctor stated if there is nothing else she will see me next year (June 12, 2012), do I have anything to worry about as far as my comp. being reduced based on this appt and is this how VA treat all Vets?

No big deal.

This is just SOP.

If you get pills they should see you at least twice a year for blood work. When I started to go to the VA psychiatrist it was once a month. Then it was once every two months, and now I am lucky to see him once every three months. Is this therapy? No just med check. The doctor says I am stable. If they ever call me in for an exam I am going to be very unstable.

Thanks for the great advice. I recently had a friend who had an appt and he went in and told them he felt great, I told him that he just screwed himself and that he should never tell VA he is doing great. Not that he should lie, I think you should always tell them how you feel on your worse day, for me my worse day just so happen to be every other day.

When I see the VA or any other doctor I like to do something such as Play Golf or push a mower the day before, something simple as that will have me bent over in pain... I want the Docs to OBSERVE me ON MY WORSE DAY...

Sounds like a regular PCP (primary care doc) annual check-up. You posted that you are 100%. Is your disability stable? Do you have any other regular appointments with different specialists or doctors?

Best wishes,

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
