Dro Review Should I Do A Dbq From My Specialist

Rate this question



I was wondering is it very wise to go to my Urology Surgeon and have him complete a DBQ and would the DRO consider that DBQ as some new evidence??? My surgeon did an IMO (very good one) and he even used some of the research papers he has done on Kidney Cancer causes and treatment. But the VA Dr didn't look at it and the rater dismissed it over the VA C&P Dr's half baked research on the internet. I just don't understand why the VARO would take the unqualified opinion of an 72 year old Internal Medicine Dr over a highly trained Urology Surgeon and even was rated Top Doc in Urology in the Phoenix area for the last 5 years. I also submitted new evidence showing I was on Air National Guard Active Duty orders within the one year that my claim was filed (for presumptive service connection within one year). I sent those orders into the VARO with in a week after they asked for it but didn't use it for the final decision. So much for 30 days. Just blows my mind.....
