Denied After C&p Gainesville Fl


autoteacher

Question

Had my hearing C&P, results, Alcohol abuse. The Dr a PHD hammered on a DUI I had in 1971. I admitted to 1-2 drinks a nite to sleep sometimes. He wrote that I drank as much as I could every nite. I was given two tests and he said results I was faking symptoms. The tests were facial recognition. He said I was uncooperative. The C&P was at Gainesville Fl with a PhD. Roger Davis. My VA Health records show 1-2 drinks on occasion, or 1 8oz glass of wine. He did not ask me anything about my problems. He made me feel I was a criminal. Since my Honorable D in 1971 from the Marines I never missed a day of work, drank in bars, lost a job or hurt anyone. Has anyone else met with this treatment? I would like to PM with you. During my service one tour in Nam , Awarded a CAR and a good cookie medal always 4.5 and above made E5. Put two kids trough college.. Married 39 years with no problems there. A civilian doc the same. . A VA primary care gave me a diagnosis of PTSD. Have 10% service related, bladder cancer due to Camp Lejeune water. VA is treating it. Had to quit work in 2009 due to stress related issues. PTSD started to act up then. Any one can help me understand and what to do next I would be appreciative.

I would suggest you gather as many statements in support of claim from others who know you well and know you do not have a drinking problem but do know you are experiencing the symptoms of PTSD. Statements from your spouse, current employer, former employers, co-workers, relatives, friends, etc. Also, submit your own statement in support of claim stating what you stated in your post above and request another C & P exam by another doctor because you believe your C & P exam was unfair and the report full of inaccuracies. If your VA medical records countermand the opinion of the C & P examiner, state this fact in your statement.

Good luck to you.

Did you get a copy of the psychologist's C&P exam report? If so, and if you are comfortable posting excerpts from it, I (and others) might be able to offer some more specific suggestions.

Do you think you might have overemphasized some symptoms? I'm not suggesting that you 'lied', but it's human nature to pump it up a bit when the stakes are high. If that was the case, and sometimes it's subconscious, then the psych tests will often pick up on it and it will look like you were exaggerating.

Having said that, a DUI 33 years ago and 1-2 standard drinks a night is definitely not alcohol abuse. (A standard drink = 12 oz. regular beer; or 5 oz. table wine; or 1.5 oz. 80 proof liquor).

Don't really know what advice to give you bud, other then we are here for you. God Bless and good luck. Remember that as long as you have the medical evidence you can always challenge the VA for any condition.
