    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

I have had no dealings with him, but others have. I hope they can provide some advice for you to get him to respond.

Hey 63Charlie,

UPDATE: Last Friday, September 30th, I got a call from Alice Burns. She is working with Dr. Bash. Super nice lady. Anyway, after a rather long chat  about the IMO that I needed and about what Dr. Bash had been going thru, I received a draft of my IMO.  It needs a little more work, but it's stuff that I didn't include in my initial packet.

So, Dr. Bash is alive and well. And just like all of us needed a break to take care of family business. I will send your name ( if okay with you) to Alice.

To Everyone else.............I am sorry that I came here to gripe and moan about Dr. Bash. When he (Dr. Bash) told me in December that he could help me, I knew that he would be my last hope to get a IMO for my late husband. Jimmy's death was so sudden, and our primary doctor was afraid to help me. As a matter of fact, all of our doctors refused to write a IMO for me. Dr. Bash has  done what he said that he'd do. And I appreciate him.

Again thanks to HADIT and Dr. Bash.

Kathy M. Mixon

They are only grapevines Buck.....I think the discussion on all that had been closed here.

Kathy, I am so glad your situation worked out!

Unfortunately we can roll with some of the stuff here that is negative,as in posts here about Dr Bash yet sometimes the actual situation is far different then we know.

I learned that many years ago when many of us wrote to Sec. Principi for a claimant here who griped a lot and even told us he was dying.

I learned the claimant was absolutely full of crap, lying to us and even getting money from many of us members. We believe what we read here....but  Once in a while it is far from the truth.

I brought Dr Bash to our older radio shows years ago and mentioned him here for probably 15 years or more because what I saw at the BVA was that his IMOs were excellent and thorough and anyone who lost at BVA even due to his work, didnt have a  real nexus or any evidence that could bolster their claim.

I still think Craig Bash is the Best and as a widow too, his IMOs for me were superb.

Dr. Bash's mother passed away at the end of July 2016. And as we all know death of a beloved family member is trying to say the least. And I would reckon that Dr. Bash needed time to grieve.  But, he is back working and I received my first draft on Monday, October 3rd. I am looking everything over as he instructed, and because I like to know everything, I am trying to read the references that he put in my IMO. I thought that I had just about every scrap written about burn pits, but he had more.

Right now, I'll have to say that I am very pleased with what he has written in his IMO for my late husband.

I was contacted on Friday, October 1st by a very nice lady named Alice Burns. She is working with Dr. Bash helping him to get caught up. Dr. Bash has been responding very quickly to me through his regular email address.

Dr. Bash is alive and is working again. Give him a chance to get caught up and be persistent. He will be in touch.


Thanks again to all on HADIT.

Kathy I understand that and I am sorry for his loss,  its always harder when its your mom.

However He is a Professional

 In respect to the Veterans claim time line he is helping with  its just a respectable and right business decision to let the veterans know or someone from his office should have contacted these veterans that placed their trust in him.

I have always Admired his work with veterans and enjoyed to hear him as a guest on the Hadit BlogTalk Radio show

I understand his grieving  a death is hard to get over and face the world afterward . Dr Bash Has my condolences.

You can ask Dr. Bash to refund the $2350 dollars he was paid in good faith by myself.

I'll be checking the mailbox.

I engaged Dr Bash twice.  Both times successful.  Did take some time, but in the end worth the "wait."

If Alice says she can help obtaining the work product, give her a chance.

I accepted the fact that I wasn't his only client and some were up against the clock and got priority- with that said I agree with Buck, better comm from Dr. Bash's end would help

that's just my $.02
