I submited two FDCs to the Phoeninx AZ RO and one took 92 days and the other 111 days. So if you do a complete package with all records, DBQ's etc up front then it should speed through relatively fast. But if you forget one thing or you ask them to get something guess what it turns into a regualr claim so beware ensure you give them everything they need at the begining. Both my FDC's had the DBQ's done by outside Doctors and were granted. I didn't want them to do one of thier shady C&P exam on me by some minimally trained trained PA that couldn't work at a real hospital on a medical condition they are not a SME on.

I filed a FDclaim, on-line, in mid May 2015. Had my C&P this past Monday, and was granted & rated on Friday. It took less than 90 days from start to finish. The claim was a secondary condition, so that might have made a difference.

I read in the CFR'S can't remember the numbers but it said that a NP (Nurse Practitioner and a PA (physician assistant) can do a C&P......signed off with a VA MD OR VA Physiatrist.

If the raters say in there reason & bases about a none qualified Dr at your C&P exam...look up these CFR Reg's
