Question?

Question

: (18 August 2014 - 09:26 AM)Looking For Feedback. I Have Applied For Iu. Was Told To Come In For A Psych Eval And Diabetes Clinic. Received A Call From Va They Were Cancelling The Psych Eval As The Doc(?) Who Did It In March(Ptsd Increase) Was Asked For His Opinion And He Was Going To Submit That. This Is The Same Individual Who Told Me Off The Record About Iu And To Contact My Service Officer. Sounds Positive To Me, But I May Be A Little Bias. Thoughts?

As long as he remembers and does it right, you will be OK.

Good Luck.

It does sound good but don't count on anything until it actually happens.

Update on my initial post. I was just told by my counselor that the response from the above Doc. or Psych Evaluator was in my medical file. He read it to me and the response was that I was not capable of working due to PTSD and recommended me for IU. I still have to go on the 2nd of September to the Diabetes Clinic for them to say if it would effect my be able to work. It seem like the Diabetes Clinic feedback will be minimal compared to the above. All at the Vet Center feel that the Psych input is the last piece to the puzzle. I wonder if the VA can still screw it up? Thoughts, comments? Thanks!

Sounds good - BUT YES - anything and everything, can get screwed up.

You will know for sure once you have the official decision

or cash in the bank.

Don't count much on ebenefits - claims jump back and forth - this is normal

and does not mean they are closer or further away, from making their decision/s.

Just found this in my medical file on My HealtheVet Blue Button. I have removed the examiners name. If it is not advisable to post this I will remove all.
I guess if I had written it myself it couldn't have gone better. Feedback please.
[X] Veterans Health Administration medical records (VA
treatment records)
MEDICAL OPINION SUMMARY
-----------------------
Based upon the records examined, particularly the last
compensation exam
conducted on March 7, 2014, relevant literature, and the
training and
experience of this examiner, it is the opinion of this examiner
that this
veteran would be unable to secure and maintain substantially
gainful
employment in his normal occupational environment, regardless of
the physical
or sedentary aspects of a given job, primarily due to persistent
PTSD
symptoms, per DSM-5 diagnostic guidelines, of increased arousal
(such as
irritability and difficulty concentrating) as well as an
avoidance of stimuli
associated with his traumatic experiences (avoiding
interpersonal interactions, crowds) and a numbing of general
responsiveness
(being detached and having a restricted range of affect), and is
socially
totally and occupationally impaired and that he is individually
unemployable
at this time.
RESTATEMENT OF REQUESTED OPINION:
a. Opinion from general remarks: MEDICAL OPINION: PTSD
(UNEMPLOYABILITY):
The veteran was examined on March 7, 2014 for his service
connected PTSD.
Please do not recall the veteran unless it is necessary to
provide the
opinion.
Examiner, please comment on how the Veteran's service connected
PTSD impacts
his ability to obtain/maintain gainful employment. Please
describe the
functional impairments and how those impairments impact the
Veteran's
physical and sedentary employment. Please provide the complete
rationale for
your opinion.
b. Indicate type of exam for which opinion has been requested:
DBQ Psych PTSD
