    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

Non Qualified Doctor

Question

How do I make a complaint on a Dr that I feel was not qualified to do my exam at C&P in Ft. Wort,TX? This was a exam on appeal. First note on the Doctors notes was his answers to questions that was exactly like his answers on his Nov 2010 exam. I couldnt believe this when I read his report. I was going for symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy. I was in the exam room at the most 10 mins and he said he had me do repetitive use of bending and other things. This doctor completly wrong he never did any of this.

WHO CAN I TALK TO OR COMPLAIN TO ABOUT THIS? THIS CLAIM IS ONGOING SINCE JULY 2010 AND I ASKED WHEN I MIGHT GET A ANSWER BACK AND HE SAID IT IS AVERAGING 663 DAYS WHAT THE HECK? WE NEED TO WEED OUT THESE DOCTORS THAT DONT DO THEIR JOB.

I have PTSD,several back surgeries and other problems. ALSO THIS DOCTOR PUT IN MY FILE THAT MY FORWARD FLEXION ENDS (NORMAL ENDPOINT IS 90) AND HE CHECKS THE 90 OR GREATER BOX CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THIS MEANS ABOUT THE ENDPOINT IS 90 DEGREES AND I AM CHECKED AT 90 OR GREATER. I CANT GET A ANSWER FROM ANYONE. PLEASE HELP.

I HAVE NO RANGE OF MOTION AND FOR HIM TO PUT THESE UNTRUTHS IN MY FILE HAS ME AND

THANK YOU,

TOM

Your only recourse is to get Dr Bash to examine you and dispute this exam.

It wont be cheap but if you want to win, that's what you have to do.

There may be other ways but do you have years to wait?

You will need an IMO to rebut the C&P examiner and try to bring

the medical evidence into relative equipoise - thus receiving application

of the BOD.

I had something along the same lines on a C&P years ago. I did exactly what the other posts are telling you to do. I went to a family doctor who summed it all up with one line. Mr XXXXXXX condition of XXXXXXX has been "poorly managed" by the VA doctor. He went on to FAX a copy to the VA and I handled the paperwork end separately. It didn't take long and the VA was calling me back to reasses my SC condition. Well, duh? But again, that was years ago, and the VA was not imploding at the time. We on the outside just had to deal with it ourselves.

    • 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...
