Frequently Asked Questions
  • How many claims has your office completed?

    Over 2,000 cases.

  • How long were you in the service?

    I served in the U.S. Navy where I was Chief Resident at Naval Hospital Pensacola and provided care to active duty, reserve, and retired members at other duty stations before coming to private practice.

  • Why Use K&D Veterans Medical Assessment?

    We provide veterans medical evaluations that meet VA-specific guidelines. This helps veterans towards successful claims.

  • What are some areas of review?

    As a medical sub-specialist, an active medical researcher, and a board certified physician, Dr. Mitchell can assess most medical conditions or concerns. That includes the analysis of most diseases and injuries a veteran might develop in connection to his or her military service. 

  • What are C & P Exams?

    The C and P exam (Claims and Pension exams= CP exam) is one of the most important steps in the VA medical code process as all these claims all are medical claims and thus the CP exam is the VAs way to get more medical data—so never miss the exam or VA will simply say that the patient missed the exam and deny the case.

  • What steps do I take for my IMO?

    Complete your intake form.
    Dr. Mitchell or someone from his staff will contact you to discuss your IMO. Only after you complete your intake form.
    Keep in mind your price will be based on the number of primary/secondary medical issuses and complexity of your case.
    Veteran pays his/her fee online.
    Veteran sends a copy of their military medical record, civilian medical record, and VA medical records along with all radiology and lab reports. Please send copies only. Dr. Mitchell does not maintain any records on file. All records will be shredded after Dr. Mitchell completes your IMO.
    Please take your medical documents through the postal service. Dr. Mitchell will use a P.O. Box, and he will not send confirmation of receipt because of his case load and work schedule.
    Dr. Mitchell completes your IMO and mails it directly to you. This process should take 4 to 6 weeks from the receipt of payment and all medical records provided by you.

    ***NOTE*** All documents must be sent in one transaction unless authorized by Dr. Mitchell.
    Dr. Mitchell’s daily routine consists of running Northside family practice and assisting veterans with their case IMO’s. Please be patient and allow him or his staff time to contact you.
