And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

It is your claim. With your Survuival or existance at steak, You should do these things before you show up for an Exam.

1: Call the office of the C&P examiner. Ask them if they have your medical information from the Regional Office. If not ask them Why they dont since it is a VA requirement. Tell them you will be bringing yopur own copy with you just in case.
2: If you dont have a copy and you go and they dont have it, Ask them nicely to reschedule it when they get it.

The Bottom line is this. Dont go into the exam unprepared. Doing this will cost you time in getting your claim or even result in an unjust medical opinion which causes a boatload of other issues down the road.

If you dont have a copy of the C File, I urge everyone to get one.
The better educated you are the better results you will have.

I brought two medical opinions to my exam so the examiner to opine the same way. He read them during the exam and I asked if he agreed and he said "sure do, this all makes sense." I was relieved that I had those with me. He didn't have my C-file but he had my VA medical records and I guess he didn't need the file since it was for increase.

I bought my IMO & VA progress notes & private doc notes to my C&P exam. I ask the C&P doc did he have my c-file & he said no, so I gave him my notes but he refuse to take them and " I will get the c-file later." The next week I went back to the VAMC to check & eas told that he had picked up the file.

babyray get a copy of c&p and make sure that the info you offered Doc is in your claim file.

Never ever take the word of someone at VA until you have proof

I know now that the C&P doctor didn't have any information. I offered a packet and she refuse and was not interested. She make it plain, that she was going down the checklist and ask all these questions.
I did poorly, she open with stressors. This was the first time I talk about them with a stranger.
It put the rest of exam in turmoil. I didn't explain my work problems, I just blew it. My mind was back in Vietnam, and couldn't focus on the questions. My mistake and I will need to do it on a NOD, or appeal.
The C&P exam for the most stressful thinG, I went through since Vietnam, which create the Stressors.

sgmdae,

I don't think anyone thinks they aced their C&P for PTSD. When you are driving home you question yourself on your answers to the shrink. Why didn't I say this or that. You just have to wait and see how it turns out. I'm in the same situation as you. My exam was 4 weeks ago. My VSO said I should have cancelled my exam because my shrink didn't believe in PTSD. Its to late now. You've waited 40 years, whats' another six months. Hang in there.

Bill

WHAT? You mean they have Comp&Pen examiners doing exams that don't believe in PTSD. That's outragious and needs to be investigated. If this is true it's just as bad as that blow up where Examiners were told by higher ups not to diagnose PTSD.

This is scary and the fact your VSO told you this after the exam shows he's not on top of his game either. I would be pissed at my VSO right now.

I'm surprised he would have told you this after the exam even if true. What good does it do?

The VSO told me after the fact because I was not in contact with them when I was scheduled for the C&P.

My guy at the Vet Center looked up my appointments on his computer when I asked him about them. He said the first was for IU and the second was for PTSD with doctor no name. He said that the Dr. was not the type of guy I would like. I said I didn't care because I wanted to get it done. I just wanted it over with as soon as possible.

I knew going in that this guy was a prick and didn't care about the vets. I felt like hurting this guy, that would have helped my claim when I got out of jail. In some questions I think I did bad because I was unable to express myself or recall things. In other questions I think I held my own with the shrink and may have caught him off guard with my answers.

You never know what happens in these exams. The facts are there for anyone to see. I have nothing but time on my hands and its not the end of the world if I get the shaft.
