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.

dajoker, that is all well and good.  Unfortunately most of us vets have the assistance of a VSO who might know what he is doing.  We do not all have the experience of someone inside the system and it takes us a while to get it right.  Throw in a complicated case and a neurologist or two who are trying to save the VA money and we are sunk before we ever get our ship out of port.  The VA closed that neurology department by the way.  We wind up having to pay a lawyer 20% of our award dated back ten years when it should have been completed by the RO right the first or second time, so our kid would have had a chance at college.  I am not trying to be nasty, it is just that on the other side of the fence there are a lot of veterans getting treated like they are dirt.

If you don't mind OP, can I ask if anyone knows whether Dr. Ellis will do an IMO without you going to their office. I don't think I'll be able to make it to his office before my appeal is due (June), but I'd like to submit the appeal with a good IMO.

I did my exam last month with Dr. Ellis. No they will not do an IMO with only your records. 

For what he is charging get the plane ticket, get a one night hotel and fly home the next day.  It's good money spent and worth the investment.

This is what I am thinking. I took the chance.

, two nexus letters from physical therapist and chiropractor,

I am honestly not sure how much weight these will hold. From my research, they only want IMO's from a NP, PA, MD/DO or PhD/Psyd (mental). Now, I could be wrong, but that is what I have gathered.

Wood78221 is correct and the highest educated opinion usually wins.
