Military Lawyer: Taylor, Attorney replied 6 months ago

ok thanks. unfortunately the decision to get referred to the MEB is something that is up to your treating doctors. have you asked your doctor what their suggestion is and/or why they wont refer you to the MEB?

He wants me to keep going to physical therapy but nothing is working I’ve been on a profile for a month now and I can’t preform any of my duties
Military Lawyer: Taylor, Attorney replied 6 months ago

ultimately it is up to your doctors to make these medical decisions and its really nothing you can push along or change unfortunately. if it has only been a month, PT can take many months to see results. do you have any further question for me at this time?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
