Lovinglife - Newbie With Questions



Hello, I am new to the forum so I apologize if this has ended up in the wrong section but it was the closest topic to my situation - smile. I just had a general medical examination with Veterans Evaluation Services. All seemed to go well as there were three DBQ's that had to be completed (GERD, GYN, STOMACH). The doctor completed all (which "appeared" to be in my favor). However, on the last DBQ there was a question that stated " Does the veteran have any other pertinent physical findings, complications, conditions, signs and/or symptoms? The doctor noted that she recommended that I have and endoscopy to test for H-pylori and a hiatal (sp) hernia, and testing for B12 deficiency.

My claim is for GERD/Gastritis and gyn conditions. The GERD/Gastritis is noted in my military and private medical records. The doctor confirmed that I have a current condition that started during active service.

My question is will her "recommendations" delay processing my claim - meaning will they hold it up for more testing or is this my personal decision to have the tests performed on my own? She completed the DBQ's and sent them electronically while I was there so I'm thinking that these tests are not necessary to make a decision on my initial claim. Any feedback is appreciated.
