A few days ago I went in to the TEMPLE TX VAMC for a cancer screening, I have some odd  bumps that have worried me for some time so I went in. I called and made an appointment via the 1800  number and specifically told them the reason I wanted an appointment.. ok , so they scheduled an appointment I went to it, and during the screening by the nurse, I once again, told her the reason for my visit, showed her the bumps, then went to see the doctor.. Once Im in with the doctor, he seems to want to talk abt everything EXCEPT the reason im there, which wa mt skin cancer concerns.,. so eventually I cut in and ask him abt them bumps, and right away he says no, its not cancer, its a sebacious cyst.. ... hmmm yet one bump looks different than the other.. also,, im thinking to myself, this guy is an internal medicine doc, shouldnt I see a dematologist, a specialist perhaps... well after his quick diagnosis, and no referal to a specialist, I go home, and a few days later read my doctors notes on myhealth  e vet..   The note have NO MENTION AT ALL OF MY REASON FOR THE VISIT. There is no mention what so ever of skin cancer, bumps, ect... Matter of fact, they lied and said it was a routine scheduled visit.  NOW WHY would they do this????

I will tell you why,,, its because if a year from now, those bumps turn out to be skin cancer. there will be no record that they were brought to the VS a attention... no proof, no case...

So what I did was messaged my provider and asked them to correct my records, and state that the primanry reason for the appointment was my concerns abt skin cancer, and to also record= that no  follow up was scheduled, nor was I referred to a dermatologist..

The reason for that, is a few years back, when seeing a VA doctor in temple tx, for back pain. I requested to see a chiropractor at the VA/.. At the time, she told me it was only for an acute injury, and I didnt meet the criteria... well  months later, I went to the release of records and printed all of my records and dotors notes(this was before I knew abt blue button online ),, Well in the doctors notes, the lousy cockroach  actually wrote that she gave me a consult to see the chiropractor, which was a lie... so she was covering her ass, and making it look like she gave me a consult, but I didnt go... PLEASE , PLEASE,  READ YOUR doctors notes.. I believe the nurses are being told not to record specific things in veterans records. when they dont  provide the correct treatment or referrals that the situation requires, it cant come back to bite them in the ass later... If you make sure they record it on record, you got them.

In the end  records are all that matter... you can yell , scream, cry , moan and beg,  but what is written wins and loses claims.

If you arent registered with myhealth e vet, do so.. it makes it so easy to keep a record of your communications with your  doctors. everytime I send them a message, it gets timestamped, with proof it was opened, read, and by whom. I believe they have 24 hrs to open, and respond to all messages. This is tghe best tool a veteran has right now, to try and keep them honest...

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
