    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Others have used Dr. Jerry Bush in Griffin, Georgia for IMEs and IMOs.  Although he specializes in toxicology and pharmacology, he is an internal medicine doctor and reportedly does IMEs and IMOs for many conditions.  He is familiar with the requirements of the VA and has a website at www.jerrybushmd.com 

Good luck to you and thank you for your service.

Thank you for your response and service, georgiapapa. I have used Dr. Bush back in 2010, the BVA did not give is IMO too much weight because he did not examine me, he only reviewed my service medical records. If I recall correctly the Judge gave seemed to lean more towards giving me the benefit of the doubt and listening to my story. However, I am not apposed to going back to Dr. Bush as long as I am examined this time around. I have been trying to reach Dr. Bash and willing to fly to see him, but I have not heard back from him.  I have a few months left to appeal the BVA decision. I really need the right help and course of action dealing with the BVA decisions and  getting the right rating increase. Its so sad this is such a long process, especially when SMR should injury. I've been persistent at this since 2003 and I'm not stopping until I am satisfied.
