    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

What do I do?

Question

Hello all, 

Had a C&P exam last week and felt as though the examiner was very dismissive. Read the note today and she contradicted much of what i said; for example I described several instances of having difficulty with impulse control, yet she wrote “veteran denies issues with impulse control or unprovoked irritability”, despite writing down my examples. Same went with other things, where I described my struggles with managing finances, maintaining hygiene, etc. She wrote veteran denies issues with x, y, z when I clearly did not deny it, I actually brought a lot of things up that she chose to not discuss.

What do I do with that report? Do I wait until they give me their rating and then appeal it, or would it be beneficial (and is there any way to?) address the faultiness of that report now?

Thank you!

Your best bet is to wait and see where your case goes from here.  If you say the examiner was not honest it could look bad on you.  When you appeal, if that is necessary, you might need to get an IMO for your condition.  So right now relax and wait.  We on this board know how difficult that is but it is your sanity's best route.  We have been there before, I had a neurologist write a very bad evaluation on me and it all worked out in the end.

I agree with Vetquest  your just going to have wait and see how your decision goes/

  Some times when we think we got a bad C&P Exam  during the exam   some of those examiners are just having a bad day them self's and when they write there report out it could be beneficial to you, but if it is a bad decision and you don't agree  you have a year to appeal the decision  so as soon as you get the decision Appeal it,

You may need to request your C-file and as Vetquest mention get an  IMO (Independent Medical Opinion) from a specialist to rebute what this examiner mention  and have the Dr to go onto details about your condition. 

Be sure to ask the Dr to go by the VA Guideline for the criteria of your condition and use the words ''Is Likely As Not ''

Most of us have had to do this, but wait on your decision  it may not be as bad as you think? The you know what areas to address with  Doc
