So my exam is next week. I filed in 2008-appealed and finally have an exam next week. For the past year, I am seeing a MH doctor via tele-video, she is nice, but Korean-so I dont always think she understands what I say. I repeat alot of what I say and she always looks puzzeled. So Between talking into a TV screen and talking to a korean doctor- I
do not always feel comfortable.Should I bring this up during my exam.Been seeing the VA for 4 years, been on meds for 4 years- have not gotten any comp yet.

Should I bring this up during my exam??

It depends if you are a good distance from the MH or you do not have transportation - then the tele-video is the new way that the VA MH are using to at least make sure you are receiving some kind of treatment. It's like taking online classes because you are unable to be in a classroom with a lot of people because of PTSD. But you can request a different MH Dr.
