    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

You might find what you need here:




http://www.imenet.com/




Also have you listened to our radio
shows with Dr. Bash in the SVR archives here at hadit?


Dr. Bsh ,as a former VA doctor, has
rovided excellent IMOs and IMEs for countless veterans overt the
years.


Here is his site:




http://www.craigbashmd.com/




He did IMOs for me that were superb. I
won that claim.




Try this link too:

A doctor ,not familiar with IMOs for VA claims, should follow the IMO criteria here in our IMO forum and use the specific key wording as to 'as likely as not' , or ' more than likely' etc etc and give a complete medical rationale. It also hels that they provide a CV and also citations from medical treatises and/or texts.

Thank you so much Berta. I'll look at all of them.

My DR would not write me a IMO for three years.

One day i walked in and sat him down and explained that he did not have to be 100% sure but only 51% sure and that he would not have to make an appearance at the VA .

That made all the difference , he immediatly said {well! in that case i will write your letter for you}

I gave him a sample IMO that i wrote from a internet sample giving him what he needed to write including the most important words any IMO can contain and i stressed how important it was to put that phrase in at least once,he inserted it in the letter 2 times {AS LIKEY AS NOT connected to his military service} along with proper documentation and evidence all military history concerning the injury.

I sent it to my lawyer first and got a call within a few days.the lawyer said that was one of the best nexus letters he had ever seen.

So you might want to talk to your doc , and if you explain they just might do it for you.

That letter only cost me $35.00 and was welll worth it.

Alot of doctors won't write them anyway ,but some will , if you explain the 50% and he knows your medical history from the military.

I hope this may have helped

I live in NORTH CAROLIANA

good point and advise. My cardiology refused to write one for me 3 weeks ago. However was in his office today and was told I needed my primary doctor to start the letter and then the cardiology Dr would add his comments. But I just read Berta suggestion on using DR. BASH. I would love to know his fee first and will contact him.

thanks for the info

    • 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...
