Wanted to ask if you have any contacts of an attorney. My Dod disability rating was just 10%, because a doc screwed up and didn't mark radiculopathy and IVDS in the form as positive and put 70 degrees rom forward as an estimate, because I had a flare up, so she couldn't measure. Now I found out, that pain clinic doc put 30 degrees rom forward, 10 back, radiculopathy and IVDS in my medical records. I have all papers together. Ready appealed with VA and waiting for results. I was separated only 10 days ago... With just 10% and unbearable pain frequently

Re: Your CRSC Estimates

It was nice to work with you since you have an excellent understanding of the mechanics involved. It is not unusual to receive a request for an estimate that leaves out half of the info needed even after directly asking for it twice WITH examples. Then there are those who pick numbers out of the air. They are usually easy to detect with even numbers for everything.

Those presentations make the CRSC estimate worthless and a waste of time. I guess I am just getting old (76) and cranky.

Take care,
