I am not an expert at what the VA needs on a 4138 but I began the ones that I included in my recent (10-08), initial claim as follows:
In support of the above referenced claim for SC disability due to ____________________ as a result of __________________________, I ask that the following be
My Primary Care Physician (Internal Medicine)is:
Dr. XXXXX XXXXXXXX

address and phone
I have had regular appointments with PCP since June X, XXXX. He has been responsible for my general health and well care.
Find attached the Independent Medical Opinion letter attached from Dr. XXXXX XXXXXXX.
Find attached pertinent portions of my record from this doctor that reflect(s) the following:
1. This Doctor pointed out the XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXX) in the Veteran's lab work that was accomplished at XXXXXX in June '03. See the lab
report attached to the IMO provided by this Veteran's PCP
2. This Doctor referred the Veteran to __________________ for MRI and scans that further identified disease process. See the attached radiology report and
I have attached the VA Form 21-4142 for the release of my records from Dr. XXXXX if it is deemed necessary by the VA.
The wording will depend on the issues that you are presenting and the others are correct that a VSO can and will help with what needs to be said.
This is one that was with the claim I submitted and it was well recieved when I reviewed it with a VSO rep.
In addition, I would put you full name, SSN and claim or file # in the top margin and on the top margin of every document that you include with your claim.
