    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

Question

Hi Everyone

I spoke to a lawyer about helping me with my case where the VA denied me for my back claim since I didn't follow up after the accident when I was on active duty back in 2001. The lawyer told me to find a doctor who would be willing to do an IME or an IMO to link my back pains to my military accident. I found a doctor in Fort Worth where I live and I mentioned to the doctor that I was seeing a chiropractor and he told me that he wouldn't be able to make me an appointment to see him until I faxed him over a copy of the treatement record from the chiropractor and then he would make me an appointment to see him.What I wanted to know is this normal for doctors to want to see paperwork from another doctor and if not can anyone recommend a docotor in the DFW area if anyone knows of one who knows how to do a IME or a IMO

I don't think it is normal, but don't mention chiropractors to M.D.'s if you know what is good for you. These guys hate each other. Most M.D.'s think Chiropractors are frauds. Find another doctor.

Thanks John999

I have another question, I just googled doctors who can give IME and IMO and I found 2 of them off of VAWatchdog.com and they both seem really credible and I was going to give one of them call tomorrow. But what I wanted to know is can a doctor give you an IME or IMO if they aren't in the same state as you.

Yes, if they have all you SMR's and current medical records. They can review your C-File, SMR's and current records and write an opinion. Or you can go visit them and bring all the records. You must have the records so they can say they reviewed them. I think an IME is stronger than an IMO based just on records with no exam. I could be wrong.

What are these IMO / IME's going to cost you?

Hi Jbasser

I don't know, I'm going to find out tomorrow when I call them, the lawyer that I'm working with just wants me to find someone that can do it and they told me that they would take it from there.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
