    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

Well, no but you may be able to find him by searching BVA cases and see if his IMO/IME's were successful.

I heard from a few members here that have used him for IMO's/IME's  HE IS EXCELLENT and knows what the VA needs and wants  how to give his opinion .

The only negative is that he charges for each condition!

They say he is very thorough.  but better ask about prices.

Dr. Ellis did one for me.  I filled out the paperwork as shown online at his site and mailed it to him.  They called me to schedule an appointment.  He reviewed all my records and we went over my issues.  The time frame from the day I mailed him the paperwork until I received the IMO in the mail from him was a month almost exactly.  This was over the Christmas/New Year holidays so very quick imho.

He is a thorough and knowledgeable doctor.  He has a charming personality, very friendly and I enjoyed my experience with him.  I definitely recommend him.

His staff were polite and friendly also.

I personally think a good IMO is worth the money.

I just submitted and today WI intake received my form 9 packet, which included said IMO.  My claim has some quirks in it due to a CUE and equitable relief for not being given an appropriate TBI c&p.  As soon as I have a decision you folks will know about it.

I had Dr. Ellis do an IMO for me based on others success and feedback.

I also had Dr. Anaise do one for me.

Given the age and errors in my claim I was leaving no rock unturned.

I was very pleased with both gentlemen, their professionalism and the turnaround time.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
