Ptsd C&p Exam Within Va Clinic Where He Is A Patient.


Kimmy

Question

My husband got a call yesterday from a VA person to review the items in his claim. She was in the process of ordering his C&P exams. She told him that the PTSD exam would be in the same clinic at the VA where he currently goes for treatment. Background: He was formally diagnosed in the past year and has attended the 10 week PTSD group sessions, the 6 week Anger Management sessions and is now in one on one counseling with his doctor who he is pretty comfortable with. He was in college thru VocRehab as a result of service connected bilateral knee injuries. However, he has had to drop out because problems with focus & memory, panic attacks and other anxiety issues all related to PTSD. For the other exams she said he would get the QTC info thru the mail. He got so worked up after this that he had a terrible panic attack last night. He said his mind was racing just thinking that all of a sudden his claim was moving. Quick change is hard for him.

We are thinking that is a good thing that he is going to his same clinic (less stress for him) since they have plenty of documentation on him. Any thoughts?

In my opinion, this should work in his favor. If the examining doctor has any additional questions or needs further clarification after the C & P exam, they could probably confer with his regular clinical doctor. Unless the clinical doctor thinks he is faking his PTSD symptoms, he should be alright. Just my opinion.

"He was in college thru VocRehab as a result of service connected bilateral knee injuries. However, he has had to drop out because problems with focus & memory, panic attacks and other anxiety issues all related to PTSD. "

If this is documented by his Voc Rehab counselor, this is good evidence for future TDIU.
