C&P examiner lookup

Rate this question

Question

I have had no success in looking up a C&P examiner.  I used the VA site and nothing.  I just had an exam a few weeks ago so I'm pretty sure he still works there.  He has been there for at least 10 years that I know of.  I'm not sure if he's a full-time employee.  I have seen him in 2 different VA hospitals for C&P exams.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to look up this guy?  To see his credentials or anything for that matter.

He's a ghost.  The only mention I have found of this guy is a court case outside of the VA system.  Needless to say something seems not right about this guy.  More than just the usual bedside manor issue.

Hi,

Have you tried Mylife?  It is very intrusive with bogus information at times but maybe you will find something.  There is also good old Google as well.

Good luck with the ghost hunting.

Thanks for the tips.  Its weird how I can staff from the treatment side of the VA but the C&P is like looking up a secret agent.

 I have the name of the doctor but I was trying to find their specialty and training which you can get from the VA site on treatment doctors.  It tells their schooling.  C&P staff is a blackhole.  Probably go to have to try the request.

This is very interesting...maybe begin with the court case outside of the VA system, my former VA neurologist gave testimony in a court case outside of the VA system.

It never hurts to be at least one step ahead of things.  In a way we have to be a "secret agent"  Just my thoughts.

The obvious answer, other than the good advice you have already received, is to go to the place where you got your exam (again), and ask the Secretary (the examiners name).  Hopefully you can describe him or her.

So after looking around still nothing on this guy.  I have his name and google returned the court case which appears to be outside the VA court system.  I think it was some sort of lawsuit that was dismissed.  His name is listed in my C&P and the VA confirms he is a doctor over the phone but could not provide his specialty.  

It seems the VA will let you look up a doctor that provides treatment which I have found actually works.  I forget the exact site but is a VA website and even tells you where they went to school.  It seems C&P examiners are off limits to background research as to the specialty.

Further a lot of or possibly most VA examiners are not required to have a state medical license.  Eliminating another avenue of research.  

Where am I going with this?  I am prepping for some IMO's and I am thinking ahead to if the VA denies my claim.  I have specialist(rheumatologist) treating me.  This mysterious doctor the VA has been using could be a pediatrician for all I have been able to find.  I feel like I am going to have to file a request that involves a long fight.

At my last C&P which included my feet this VA doctor asked if I had seen a podiatrist for my condition and wondering how I could know what was wrong with my feet if I had not seen one.  While foot specialist,  podiatrist are not typically the doctors you would see for a psoriatic arthritis condition.
