The Independent Medical Opinion (IMO) is accomplished by a thorough review of the pertinent medical records that you provide to me. Once the records are properly read and reviewed, I then consider, report and record in a document for your use any science that may help us connect the events in the records to you claim for a service connected disability.
A review of available records may allow you to determine whether or not you should file for certain conditions. I can compare and contrast the records you provide me with the requirements to obtain VA disability ratings for service connected conditions as presented in the Schedule For Rating Disabilities. This may help you and your advocate to determine a strategy to proceed for an appeal or whether you should search for more evidence.
