    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.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
