Question

Morning all,

    I am new to the forum but been an avid reader and learner from the posts listed here on this site as well as other sites.

    My situation, I was able to get an IMO from the Ellis Clinic plus an Nexus from the VA Dr.  and submitted in as a  new claim and was wondering what are my chances in winning. I know every scenario is different and I review the citations as well on BVA. 

   Can anyone share their successes or disappointments?

P.s. Flores97 I emailed you :) I wished you well in your case. 

Sincerely,

Thank you.

What type of nexus were you seeking?

Any IMO doc and/or a VA doc can make a positive nexus statement, but some nexuses need documented links to your service.

Hi Berta,

 

I did get the IMO and Nexus VA dr.  linking to my military services. Just wondering if anyone had success with IMO from the Ellis clinic. I am somewhat patiently waiting for the results from the FDC I filed It is in the Preparation for Decision right now. 

I do not want to go through the long ordeal with the Appeal process so I just filed as new with New Medical evidences.

One of the Major disappointments with veterans claims 

Some times no matter what type of evidence we send them.

if they fail to read it  or miss-read it,or say they don't have it or what ever reasons they give or say some off the wall crap like the evidence veteran submitted does not meet the criteria for this condition (denied)  vets can always NOD  but when this happens it sux. period

 

when submitting evidence with your claim  its always good to put on each page in (  ) with your claim#      that you have made all copies of this transaction) available on demand.

You have your IMO & NEXUS this is good..any military records medical or service that helps you prove your claim will indeed help the rater &detailed lay statement from you.

depending on what your claiming, but it seems to me your FDC will be approved.

    • 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.
