We have a neighbor who has IHD with AICD implant. He is on his third AICD one done by the VA. He filed a claim in August and it was sent to Philly. He has been notified he is a possible Nehmer so he must have filed a claim in the past, he does not remember. He went back to a doctor yesterday that treated him a few years ago and asked him to fill out the questionaire, the doctor replied he did not believe AO caused any of this and refused to fill the form out. Makes me mad that we are not asking a doctor for a cause just a DX. This Vet was boots on the ground Viet Nam. He is in his 60's, but looks 80. Hates the VA, but agreed to file a claim with a VSO and my husband went with him. My advice was to let his VSO know about the doctor and sign release forms for the VA to gather his records, let them know what facility implanted the AICD and wait for the VA to schedule a C&P for confirmation of the AICD implant with IHD DX. His wife will not help him with any of this. He is ill and trys to work on repairing old washers and dryers for extra money. Any tips?
