Social Security Doctor Backs Up Dr. Bash

Guest jangrin


Guest jangrin

Hey everyone,

Finally some GOOD news. Today in the mail, we got a copy of the report from the Internal Medicine Specialist, for my husbands SSDI exam. He was contracted by SSA to evaluatte my husband for SSDI benefits. His report is a straight forward no holding back report of function and my husbands ability/or inability to work. It is HONEST AND STRAIGHT FORWARD.

In this report he stated that my husband has DMII and has bilateral perpheral nueropathyas a SECONDARY condition. He states that the known DMII for past sixteen years and hypertention, hyperlipidemia, and CAD over the past 10 years. (this makes them all secondary to the DMII)

The VA diagnosed all of my husbands medical conditions, Dr. Bash's IME confirmed them also and now the SSA /IMO doctor is backing up Dr. Bash and my husbands claim. THIS IS A GOOD THING.

Now if, like Berta says.......If the SO and the RO know how to read..... this should be a slam dunk for the

AO DMII claim and secondarys.

Tomorrow we will get the report form the contract shrink regarding his evalutiojn of PTSD for my husband. The SSA doctor already diagnosed PTSD chronic =and depression, moderate =and psycho-social sever= GAF score 55. We'll see what the VA doctor thinks. The VA's regular shrink diagnosed depression only. The contract doctor is really concerned about the vets and also does the group therapy, we'll see what his opinion is.

COULD THERE BE LIGHT AT THE END OF THIS TUNNEL? Wish us well for tomorrow, we are really hoping for some additional good news.

GREAT Jangrin- and your husband got the real VCAA election Notice too---great there---

I suggest -if they ignore Dr. BAsh's IMO- to sue them like I did.

In most cases the VAROs would NEVER dream of ignoring Dr. Bash- in my case they did-

I am still investigating what went down when my vet rep presented this evidence to them in Sept 2005 for DRO review.

You would think by reading all the VA letters and statements I have, that they never even saw it-and it was never mentioned at my so called DRO "conference" that I was not even asked to participate in -nor the subsequent SSOC ---- yet I sent it to them numerous times.

Maybe if my DRO did see it -she is still trying to look up "Curriculum Vitae" and hasn't gotten to the part that service connects Rod's death to AO-

I told the IG, the Senate Committee and anyone else in Gov who I have had time to write to about this whole travesty of VCAA and DRO gate-at the Buffalo VARO.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
