Doctors who write nexus letters and other medical opinions for Veterans’ VA disability claims can list their name here on this site for free. The site is maintained by psychologist Todd Finnerty, Psy.D., but Dr. Finnerty does not necessarily endorse any doctor who is listed here and he has not evaluated their services or credentials.
Nexus letter doctors near me
Do you need to find a list of nexus letter doctors near you? Sometimes it can be helpful to find someone close enough that you can travel to for an exam (for example Dr. Finnerty is in Columbus, Ohio). However, professionals can perform medical records reviews and potentially write a nexus letter that way no matter where you are located nationwide/ in the world. They may also be able to do exams via telehealth to your location. For example, Dr. Finnerty is able to do telehealth exams via Zoom to a double-digit number of states. Dr. Finnerty can interview and complete DBQ’s for Veterans in more than half the states in the USA (and write nexus letters based on records reviews for Veterans no matter where they are).
The doctors on the list below (other than Dr. Finnerty), have no relationship to nexusletters.com. Their fees will be different than the fees that I have listed on this website for me. Any opinions expressed on the website are the sole fault of Todd Finnerty, Psy.D.; the other professionals below are listed here as a service to you.
Sometimes your treatment provider won’t write a nexus letter and you need to find a forensic specialist with expertise in VA disability claims. If you’re searching for a specialized doctor who will write you a nexus letter you’ve now found the right place. You can work directly with the doctor (and not a middleman).
While it would be convenient if Veterans in need of first or second opinions on mental health related claims could seek them from treatment providers at the VA, VA policy outlined in VHA Directive 1134(2) Provision of Medical Statements and Completion of Forms by VA Health Care Providers recommends that VA mental health treatment providers not complete forms such as “mental health DBQ’s” in order to “maintain the integrity of the patient-provider relationship.” Therefore, both the VA and Veterans often must seek forensic specialists outside of a treatment relationship to provide opinions related to their case.
Please note: I’ve only added websites to the list below where I could see who the actual professionals are who are performing the services.
The professionals listed below are likely to write nexus letters and or perform disability examinations for Veterans. They are not in any particular order except that since I made this website I get to put my name first. If you have any suggested updates to the list below please contact me. REMEMBER– Dr. Finnerty does not endorse any of the people on this list and they are not associated with Dr. Finnerty in any way; it is included here just for your convenience in doing your own research.
