    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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

ITs a valid question, but I dont have a list of doctors in New York who are familar with VA who do IME's.  You can try Mednick and Associates but this is one of those things which is "guarded" by experienced attorneys who represent Veterans.  They often have their list of docs, but dont share that "until" you hire them.  

So your choice is to hire a lawyer, call Mednick, ( or some other firm specialing in medical evidence) , or get on the phone and start calling doctors offices until you find one.  

Many Vets chose "national" IMO's, but an in person exam is great.    Maybe another Vet who used a particualar doc will chime in.  Berta is in NY, I think.  She may know.

How I did mine was that I entered in google maps "Neuropsychology," looked at whose who, decided on one/went to their office and asked about the basics/interested in having this test done with you and then "saved my pennies." Don't expect to see the doctor until the actual test day. Remember it's completely independent. Mine was local even though I knew about the one in Colorado, all my specialist are local. Even Dr. Anaise is in my same state. Took me roughly a year and half before I paid for the five hour test. Gave the doctor's office the main dozen medical doc printouts (with the c-file page # on a sticky note on each printout page) and a copy of my c-file cd. Came back for the scheduled test day, took the test, and a week later had it in my hands. 

It took a week instead of a month or two because the doctor and the associate would switch to write out the observations of the live results. But mainly the associate did most of the work and when I picked it up, the doctor explained the results and his conclusion before thanking me.  As there was a camera in the corner of the ceiling, for video evidence/observation. This doctor did not fill out any VA forms for me. My lawyer took the six page report and got me the correct percentage off the bat, with no foul balls or video playback, it spanked the VA's contracted out C&P exam.

Expect to pay two grand for it.

So I typed in "Neuropsychology ny metro" and got the many results but after looking, brought it down to the three I would select from a paper bag like a bingo ball:
