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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Referral for VA knowledgeable Psychiatrist near GA Please.

Question

This involves GAD, TBI, migraines, tinnitus (but really also includes dementia, water on the brain (NPH), Meniere's disorder, centralized sleep apnea, depression, et. al... all secondary to latent stages of Blast Shock TBI ).

I am in the GA area, but am having a problem locating a Psychiatrist IMO expert ANY where. I have also just moved across country and have no VA experts to guide me at all for anything. I used to have a whole TBI department's support which I severely need, and have absolutely no support at all now: period.

To be discrete with an actual referral candidate, please PM me. Thank you!

Ok.  For an IMO, your doctor need not live near you.  You send him your medical records, pay him, and he sends you an IMO.  

For an IME, yes you would need a doctor near enough to you that you could travel there.  An IME is Independent medical Exam, an IMO is an Indepedent Medical Opinion based on your medical records.  

There are several IMO docs who are nationwide and do them.  Dr. Bash, Dr. Anise, to name a couple.

Thanks Broncovet, but neither of them are a Psychiatrist. I know Dr. Bash, and Dr. Anise from what I hear, can do anything expertly, but a Psychiatrist is desired mainly because it is a MH issue from an official TBI expert (and M.D.)

Maybe there is no VA expert Psychiatrist available, since I have never heard of one yet. Dr. Brett Valette wrote an expert Psychologist IMO, but the root diagnosis changed mid-water (to Blast Shock TBI.) However any reasonable person could easily understand it, since the new diagnosis added further validity to GAD secondary diagnosis. Thus far, early indications from DAV are that QTC has still not understood it.

Brett Valette, Phd, does IMO's for Vets.  He is recommended on one of the "other" Vets websites.  I can not personally vouch for him, as I have never met him.

Thanks again, Broncovet.  I had used him before, but due to a M.D.'s (slightly different) root cause analysis afterwards, a fraudulent QTC Psychologist rating , TBI exams for a solid year, and homelessness, it got side-stepped in all the confusion.

I need to start looking at required time lines for processing. except this is at the lawyer stage now: so I'll let them handle the details. 

I appreciate your time and expertise Broncovet!

    • 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.
