C&p Exams 9/23 At Ves Clinic/i Am A Nervous Wreck!


Navy04

Question

Good Morning Vets,

Next Tuesday I have my C&Ps at a VES Clinic, atleast that is what they called it. I am such a wreck because as you guys all know, we either draw the Civilians that respect the Military, or the Docs that think that all Vets should suck it up and stop using the Govt for "Free Money". I don't know what to think yet, as I have not had C&Ps with anyone other then the VAs. The guy that called me to make appointment, said that the Doc doing the exam is actually a General PA or NP, and I am not a fan of either as they are usually not experts in any field of Medicine. They also said that they have access to all my VA and Navy Records, but I am going to go ahead and get all my paperwork together this week, just in case. I know that I am always here to support all you guys, but boy after 2 Claims and over 15 C&P Exams already, the exams sure don't get any easier. Thanks for listening to me this morning, and God Bless.

I agree with you about the PAs and NPs. They are ok for handling routine clinical exams but they should not be used for something as important as our C & P exams. Saving money is more important to the VA than whether a veteran receives a thorough and competent C & P exam. You should definitely have your medical records with you because it makes it more difficult for the PA or NP to render an opinion different from the info in your records.

Good luck and give us a follow up post on how the exams were conducted.

Personally, I would only take what is pertinent to my C&P issue and limit it

to 25 pages or less of copies. The examiner does not have to accept it but

in most cases they will, just say something like - I brought these to leave with you because

I don't think they are in my records.

Thanks for the support guys, and Carlie you are very right. I am only going to take my recent MRIs on the Joints, a copy of my Navy Medical Record that shows that I was treated for these while Active, and the Notes from the Chiro Doc that diagnosed the DDD, DJD and have current whole in Spine. I hope it goes well too, I am not too crazy about any of these exams. I will update when I get back next Tuesday.
