Imo From Medopinion Just Called.

Recommended Posts

Berta,

The party just called. He did tell me that they did do psychiatric IMO's.

I have everything from my SMR's to my private medical records from 1965 to date with all of my meds listed. I have 3 letters from Dr. Pxxxx, He is my Board Certified Internist, 2 letter from Pastor Bxxxx, the letter or statement from Dr. Caxxxxx. copies of both C&P examinations, all of my administrative records, including ( finally the request for transfer) this one has been hidden until this year.

The new and material evidence, Dr. J Military Psychiatrist, D. M Military board certified psychiatrist and the letter from my commanding officer. Buddy letter from a girl in Georgia with me at each duty station,

29 years of medical records of Dr. P. statement from Nurse that took care of me after the last C&P. Hypxxxx.

He wants everything.

He asked if I had about 300 pages and please write a brief synopsis of everything that has happened. He said 2900.00 and about three weeks to do.

You guys say that I need it. So here goes.

What do you think?

Did you receive the personal email that I sent to you of my file. If so did you note the claim of 1978 and 2002 was denied for anxiety and depression, but the DRO re-opening the claim for " an acquired psychiatric disorder" with new and material evidence.

They can't do this one, can they?

This is straight from the two psychiatrist C&P.

Since the service extensive medical records began in 1965 with her pregnancy and then pick up again on November 25, 1967 when Librium was ordered 5 mg. prn. From that point through 1979 she was given Elavil in 1975 and Etrafon 1975, Valium in 1976, Elixir of Butisol 1975, Valium1975, and Mellaril in 1975, Adapin in 1976, Ativan in 1978 along with Stelazine for " chronic anxiety reaction" and then in 1979 she began on Valium again 5 mg daily. also in 1979 there are prescriptions for Serax, Doxepin, Vistaril, Tranxene, and Ativan. In 1980 she began Valium 5 mg. and began Darvocet and reported takes these to date.

That is a lot of money. Pay him half now and half when you get the report. It is his job to connect all the dots but you should write something for him so he can understand the chronology and get a general idea of what happened and what has happened since. You know you want to establish that you had a psychiatric condition in the service and that you were treated for it. You also want to show that you still have the disorders and that you have been treated over the years for the disorders. Current disability, nexus and chronic nature of disability.

Josephine,

Do they have a sample report they can send you so you know what to expect? Hummm, $2900.00 for an IMO, seems like the going rate for an IMO has gone up a bit. Some other doctors fees don't seem so out of line when compared to this.

I would do as john reccommended but I would also do an outline of what you expect for your money. Supplying an outline of events in "chronological order" aids the doctors in writing your report and helps them to keep from messing up on the sequence of events. (they are human and can make errors) It is to your advantage to be VERY PRECISE AND DETAILED in the information you provide. I believe the more concise you are, the more detailed and stronger report you will recieve.

You are very smart and quite capable of outlinging the records, go for it Josephine. :P

Good advise here ----but no one here really knows how this will go----

there is no way we can predict what a doctor's IMO might say.

As it is ,it seems the only chance to gain a service connected status for this claim.

Clearly you need a definitive diagnosis of a service connectable condition,

and he/she will need all current records,

this involves prescription lists as well as treatment records, and he/she will need to give a nexus statement- the BVA remand clearly stated what they needed in that regard as they considered a potential stressor and asked for proof of this stressor.

I have no idea why the VA changed the condition to something else.

If the IMO is good,meaning it strongly supports a service connectable disability, it doesn't matter what the VA called it.

As others said-

and it bears repeating- current diagnosed condition, chronic nature of it, and established nexus equals

S/C.

In my opinion, what I am fighting is two lying psychiatirst, who did not have the gumption to write more than appears to have a personality disorder.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
