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,

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
