Does C&p Dr Contact The Veterans Mh Dr

Question

I JUST HAD A C&P EXAM FOR AN INCREASE IN MY PTSD.

AFTER LEAVING AND TRYING TO REMEMBER WHAT SHE ASKED ME SO I COULD TELL MY WIFE.

I REMEMBERD I QUESTION THAT BOTHERED ME AND NOW KNOW WHY IT DID.

SHE ASKED ME "IF I WAS AT A STORE OR AT A MALL" I FORGET WHICH ONE SHE SAID

BUT NONE THE LEAST

"AND I FOUND A WALLET OR PURSE WHAT WOULD I DO?

BEING AN HONEST PERSON AND NOT EVEN THINKING

THAT I WOULDNT BE CAUGHT DEAD IN A MALL LET ALONE A STORE

BECAUSE I DONT LIKE BEING IN CROWDS OR AROUND LOTS OF PEOPLE.

I TOLD HER I WOULD GIVE IT TO A MANAGER OR CASHIER MORE OR LESS TURN IT IN.

TO ME THAT IS A NO GOOD TRICK. SHE SAID "IF" I WAS AT A STORE. KEY QUESTION "IF" I WAS. I WOULD TURN IT IN.

THATS THE KIND OF TRICKY, SHADY SHIT I DONT CARE FOR WITH THESE PEOPLE.

BECAUSE I KNOW DAMN WELL THERE GOING TO SAY HE ANSWERED THAT QUESTION.

WOW HE CAN GO TO A MALL OR STORE AND HE HAS SEVERE PTSD?

ALSO CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME IF IM BEING PARANOID FOR NO REASON?

I HAD A REGULAR APPT THE VERY NEXT DAY AFTER MY C&P WITH MY MH DR.

I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A HARD TIME TRUSTING THIS MAN FROM THE FIRST VISIT.

SO I HAVE A HARD TIME OPENING UP TO HIM.

HE STARTED THE APPT THE SAME WAY AS ALL APPTS HOW AM I DOING?

I TOLD HIM NOT WELL THAT IM FEELING MUCH WORSE SINCE OUR LAST VISIT

THAT MY MEDS DONT SEEM TO BE WORKING, THAT IM HAVING MORE FREQUENT SUICIDAL THOUGHTS,AND THAT

I THINK I MAY BE LOSING MY JOB REAL SOON.

HIS RESPONSE TO ME WAS.

NOW THIS IS WHAT REALLY PISSED ME OFF.

AND I THINK IS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST AND BREACH OF PAITENT DR TRUST.

HE SAID WELL I SEE HERE YOU WERE AT A C&P EXAM YESTERDAY FOR AN INCREASE FOR YOUR PTSD

YESTERDAY?

HOW DO YOU THINK THAT WENT?

DO YOU THINK THAT WILL HELP YOU OUT FINANCIALLY?

PERSONALLY I DONT THINK ITS ANY OF HIS BUSINESS TO BE ASKING ME ABOUT MY FINANCES

AND MY C&P EXAMS AND HOW I THINK THE OUTCOME IS GOING TO BE

HIS JOB IS TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT MY MH.

HE IS VERY GUARDED NOW IN WHAT HE WRITES IN HIS MEDICAL NOTES.BECAUSE HE KNOWS I HAVE MH CLAIMS?

I GOT A COPY OF HIS MEDICAL NOTES OF THAT APPT AND HE FLAT OUT LIED IN THEM.

SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT I SHOULD DO ABOUT THIS? HIS LIEING.

I KNOW I AM DEFINETLY GOING TO REQUEST A NEW DR COME MONDAY MORNING.

HE SAID HE ADMINISTRERD A PTSD EXAM DURING OUR VISIT AND PUT ALL 0'S IN THE RESULTS AND PUT ALL THIS FAVORABLE

THINGS IN HIS REPORT.I JUST GOT DONE TELLING HIM I WANTED TO END MY LIFE?

WHEN HE NEVER ONCE ASKE ME ANYTHING AT ALL PERTAINING TO PTSD .

I AM QUITE FAMILIAR WITH THE PTSD TEST THEY HAVE GIVEN IT TO ME NUMEROUS TIMES NOW.

DOES THE C&P EXAMINER AND THE MH DR TALK VIA EMAIL BEFORE THE C&P EXAMINER FILLS OUT THERE REPORT AND SENDS IT IN? I HOPE NOT.

BECAUSE IM NOT SURE WHAT HE WOULD SAY FOR 2 YEARS HE SAYS I HAVE A SEVERE CASE OF PTSD THE NEXT WEEK HES WISSHY WASHY?

SORRY THIS IS SOOOOOOO LONG

THANKS FOR ANYONE PAITENT ENOUGH TO READ THIS AND RESPOND

I don't think the C&P doctor and your VA doctor talk to each other. I think you don't like you doctor and he does not care for you either. It is a good idea to get a new doctor. I think you should get a IMO to help you with winning an increase since your regular doctor does not sound helpful.

TANKERJOEO - first off, you might want to not post w/the capital letters?? On the internet, capital letters mean you are considered shouting and are not appreciated, by many. It could reflect on how many respond to your post and cost you some good help. jmo Thanks!!

Generally, I would say no they don't but on my recent C&P, the doc did contact my counselor for an opinion. jmo

Try to get a copy of the actual C & P results.

It could be better then you think.

I am not saying you are paranoid.

How the docs act is one thing, but what they put down on paper might help the claim.

"HE SAID HE ADMINISTRERD A PTSD EXAM DURING OUR VISIT AND PUT ALL 0'S IN THE RESULTS AND PUT ALL THIS FAVORABLE

THINGS IN HIS REPORT.I JUST GOT DONE TELLIN"

Was that the MMPI test?

Try to get a copy of that too.

Don't worry they ask hypothetical questions to see if you are not in outer space. Most of the time the answer is not important.

As far as contacting your Doc its highly unlikely you will be lucky if they even read your file.

sorry philip just a bad habit of mine to keep the caps lock on all the time.

no disrespect or yelling meant by it.

i can see the text alot better when its all caps. lol

pete53,i hear ya on that.

but i am out there on occasion ? lol :ohmy:

but i do know i would return someones purse or wallet if i found it. :biggrin:

i have had a c&p dr that i think didnt read my file.

thankfully this one seemed good. i think she may get it right this time?

ill have to wait and see though.

berta, i plan on getting a copy of the c&p results

and hopefully it will be as you said better then i think?

i have alot more respect for this dr versus the 1st dr i had.

so ill have to wait and see how that goes?

as far as the ptsd test i was talking about that was in my local va clinic mh drs notes from my

appt the following day after the c&p exam.

he said in his notes that he administered a ptsd test and they were all 0's?

and he never even asked anything about ptsd during this visit.

just the normal how are things going kinda stuff?

i think that now that he knows i have a claim in for my ptsd

which he diagnosed me with over 2yrs ago he doesnt want to add anything that

may help me in my claims process?

your thoughts on this?

i plan on swithing drs now anyway because i cant trust him now.

john999, i have 2yrs worth of va mh drs notes from this very same dr

that i have used to file this claim to begin with where he diagnosed me with ptsd with gaf scores of 50.

im gonna keep my fingers crossed and wait to see what the c&p says and then decide wether to get an imo.

this claim is at the dro. will i have time to get an imo and send it in before the dro decides this claim?

or should i ask for time to send more evidence?

thanks all for all your help

i absolutely love this website

i get lost for hrs on end reading all

of the great advice given by fellow veterans.

I have a hard time sorting out whether or not I am being angry or suspicious because of my issues or because the doc is a jerk.

My hospital has a really good patient advocate and he gets to the bottom of stuff fast.

I had one C&P nurse tell me I did not have vitiligo (loss of skin pigment) because it has overtaken me and I do not have patches of color anymore.

I told her to look in my files or to check a more private area for evidence and she refused. The patient advocate had me to a better examiner in less than 2 hours.

During my stay in the US last November to come for my C&P I ran out of Klonopin and needed a refill. VA put me on that drug 17 years ago.

The nurse practitioner had also not looked at my file and proceeded to berate me for using an addictive medication. Then she started telling me she was an "addictions expert" and she would give me two days of 1/2 my dose supply and if I came in asking for more she would mark my file "drug seeking" .....I would have gone into withdrawal! And she did not know that I had been a addictions trainer in the service.

I shut up, went to the patient advocate, was sent to a new NP, got my meds and an apology.

It is hard for me to stand up for myself these days, but I look for help.

Sorry you are going thru this.
