Jim's Mailbag
Jim Strickland is a Vietnam era Army veteran and nationally recognized expert on VA disability benefits and a member of the Stateside Legal Website Advisory Board. ​Jim's Mailbag, is a regular column where veterans, servicemembers, and family members can  ask Jim their questions about VA and Social Security disability benefits.  
You can browse all of these Q&As here, and search the Jim's Mailbag archives for helpful answers.
If Jim hasn't already addressed the questions you have, you can submit your own question.​


Hello Jim,
I'd like to ask you about...TDIU and Activities of Daily Living, Charges against Purple Heart Disabled Marine, Total hip replacement and complications, Agent Orange Presumptive Conditions,  Prostate Cancer "cured" but now recurring,  Ischemic Heart Disease and new stents implanted, Applied for disability via his doctor...and many many more.​

Do Your Homework!

Search The Board of Veterans' Appeals Decisions

When you arrive at the landing page for the BVA search function, use words like 'IMO' and 'IME' and 'medical opinion' along with your claimed condition to learn how the court  views an IMO tied to a condition like yours.

For example, if you are researching how the BVA views the opinions of expert disability doctors on degenerative arthritis of the hips, type in 'hip arthritis IMO medical opinion' and choose the years you want to search.

Remember that BVA decisions do not establish

precedence and just because a veteran prevailed in an appeal similar to yours doesn't mean a chip shot for you.

PTSD Evaluations and Veteran Medical Opinions, Brett Valette, PhD - Clinical Psychologist

If you have served in any war from Viet Nam to Iraq and Afghanistan, and if you’ve had any traumatic experience that is affecting you today, then you need to talk to me as I can do a compassionate record review and Independent Veteran Medical Opinion (IMO) based on your psychiatric issues.

I’m Dr. Brett Valette, a clinical psychologist and I’ve specialized in PTSD and trauma evaluations for over 15 years. If it’s a combat trauma, or if you were non-combat but experienced traumatic events, or if you were a victim of sexual trauma, I want to help you because VA often mis-categorizes these serious PTSD related issues as personality disorders.

If you were previously denied benefits, or you were labeled as “not fitting criteria” or if you have not had a service connected condition, I can help you as I have 15 years worth of experience with these types of veteran medical opinion related benefits.

I have been providing Independent Medical Opinions and Evaluations for over 15 years. I specialize in PTSD, TBI, Post Concussive Disorder, Cognitive Impairments, and Mood Disorders (depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety; many of these symptoms are part of PTSD). Call or email me and let’s talk. I want to help, and I can help. My Email: bvalette@aol.com Office: 303 465-3147​

Dr. Craig Bash has been helping veterans with independent medical opinions for over 20 years.

In that time, he has helped over 4000 veterans with over 40,000 claims with a high success rate.  He has hundreds of cases at the BVA, which can be searched under the BVA search engine or found on his web site at www.veteransmedadvisor.com.   

He has over 1000 name mentions at the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC). He is an assistant Professor and invited lecturer at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.

He has been an expert witness for world class medical systems such as the the VA and Johns Hopkins medical centers.  

Additionally, he has 15 years of research experience at the National Institutes of Health  (NIH) where he studied experimental MRI imaging of neurologic disease.

He was previously a deputy doctor of medical services at the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) and he has done over 50 site visits to the VA's largest hospitals for quality of care purposes. 

Dr. Bash has been 100% VA disabled since his 1984 spinal cord injury which required a 5 month VA inpatient rehabilitation stay. Thus he is familiar with VA care and rating system from a users prospective.

He also professional knows the private and government sector issues in quality of care and how these care issues/diseases interface with the VA rating system. The key to his success is his training, credentials, thoroughness and experience with VA cases.

IMO/IME   Independent Medical Opinions   Independent Medical Examinations


We recommend that every veteran consider seeking an Independent Medical Examination (IME) or an Independent Medical Opinion (IMO) for their VA disability benefits claim. The VA has become increasingly difficult to navigate.  

Because of the difficulty in receiving a fair decision from VA, we at VAWatchdog have recognized that veterans who have even the simplest claims can no longer rely on a fair decision. Every veteran should prepare to have expert help as they develop their claim. This includes legal representation by a VA accredited attorney as well as expert opinions from highly skilled and well qualified physicians.
There is a difference in the IME and the IMO. The IME requires your physical presence
in front of the examining physician. The IMO is based on the opinion of the physician after he has thoroughly reviewed your records. It is our opinion that the IMO may

be the better choice in most cases.

To write an acceptable IMO is not a simple task. The physician must first understand the law that applies to the claim.

The physician must know the details of how disabling conditions may affect the overall quality of life of the veteran patient. Disability law is not something that most physicians are trained in. Each of the doctors featured here is expert in the arena of

disability medicine. We urge veterans to review their claims with one of these physicians and to seek the help of an attorney.

Dr. David Anaise is a physician and a lawyer.


Dr. Anaise told us, "In addition to being a lawyer, I am a surgeon with almost thirty years of medical experience. I was Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery and Attending Surgeon in Transplantation at SUNY at Stony Brook. I served as President of the New York Transplantation Society and as Assistant Editor of Transplantation Proceedings.
My background in medicine and research makes me well qualified to thoroughly
review and present your disability case. I obtain, study and analyze all your medical records and perform independent medical research relevant to the issues of your case. I then present an analysis presenting your medical history in a way that best supports your claim.
