  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Ellis Clinic IMO/IME

Question

I know there has been some people asking about the Ellis Clinic and how some of the outcomes were. I am going soon to the clinic and once I get my report/exam back from him, I will file a claim. I will keep everyone posted throughout the process so people can know what the outcome was.

When you submitted your claim and the information from Dr. Ellis did you also upload his Curriculum Vitae?

His credentials are on his exam that you get. Front page

Ahhhh ok.  Did not know that.  I am working on gathering my information to send him the paperwork.  My hopes is to get an appointment with him sometime within the next couple months.   I am probably looking at July....just will not have the funds for the payment until around then. 

Did your examiner say why your claim was not favorable?

She said it was natural progression of the condition and not aggravated by burn pits(rhinitis and sinusitis). Ellis says otherwise.

Because of that you will win on appeal.  An easy slam dunk to be honest. It is sad that it will actually have to come to an appeal though.  I have been reading a lot where raters are completely ignoring one exam over another.  The assumption I guess is that they have to choose.   Federal does not allow that.  They by law have to side with you UNLESS they can justify it with a legit medical opinion.

Yeah I hope I don’t have to file an NOD. Surely a DRO would approve before an appeal. Someone needs to file a lawsuit. How the hell does this go on?
