Any Pcp Recommendation


SSGmajik

Question

I wanted to see if anyone knew of any PCP in the central Ohio area that help veterans I'm basically looking for a doctor that cares and are good at writing IMO's. I'm tired of dealing with VA dr's & the lies they put in my medical records, especially at my C&P exams. There comments had my rating lowered by putting ROM results that they did not even perform! Any help is always appreciated!

I know how you feel one time I had a PT person to do an evaluation for a power chair keep in mind I had already been in a wheel chair for about 7 years. I got a copy of the evaluation weeks later and this knuckle head put in the report that I walked 50 feet around the room. What was so funny about the darn the thing if you saw the size of the room there was no way I could have even walked 50 feet unassisted and with a walker. When I called back up to PT and spoke with his supervisor and him. He stated that he may have made a mistake. There was another veteran there for therapy the same day I did my evaluation and he didn't know I knew that person as well. So I asked that veteran to write what he saw me do and I wrote what I did and gave it to the PT guys supervisor in writing. He stated he could not change the record but that he could amend it some how. I went back and pulled again and he gave some half azz report that somewhat stated he may have been mistaken but on the phone he told me that he may have written about his other patient right before me. Yet he didn't restated that in his amendment. I had to end up getting my doc involved and my regular PT person I work with that could attest for my function and history. I finally got the power chair with delay because of this. So I feel you on this subject. Not exactly the same but the moral pretty much is. That's why I tell people after any sort of evaluation always pull the record.

VA has a newer slogan that they are posting all over the VAMC's and RO's.

Part of it relates to admitting mistakes and correcting them.

Obviously - from your post (if that happened recently) - they are not doing this.

This is off topic to the OP, but in lines with where the thread went. I read Carlie's thread on recorders over in the C and P. I have stated elsewhere while I may not have the right to record the C and P it isn't against the law for me to record the C and P, or any phone call that I make or receive --the laws of each State are different and some are more restrictive, so you must check on your state law first.

Recording telephone calls is easy, and all you need is: an olympus tp7 --or some other telephone pickup-- and a digital voice recorder --I use the olympus vn-8100. It's is simply plug and play, and then you have the great PT admitting a mistake on telephone.

While I cannot demand to have a telephone recorder present, if I have wired my wheelchair up for sound and video there's not a lot they can do about. I'm a furtive person.

That's my penny of a thought.

sc,

Your correct and although it's only a reg for VBA purposes and it well may not be against the law -

the evidence obtained via the recording - may well not be acknowledged or factored into, the adjudication of the claim issues

as the VBA regs prohibit recording of C&P examinations to begin with.

Also, FWIW - Federal law trumps State law, especially when it pertains to anything on VAMC property.

This makes State law irrelevant on this issue.

You are certainly free to think that State law is relevant on VA's Federal Property but don't count on it.

As an example - just go do something wrong on VA property and let their Security enter into the picture -

your State police - won't be able to help you out any.

JMHO

We all know the VA is terrible, but they are beyond terrible! My C&P was in 11/2010, so I really don't think their holding up to their new "motto"! They've had my TDIU claim since 10/2010 & all they can tell me is "your claim is being worked & is currently awaiting a decision!" It has been ready for a decision since 05/2010! Cleveland VARO is ridiculous!

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
