Are you a military Veteran, or family member of a Veteran, who is sick and tired of the whole VA process?

I know you’re frustrated. You have hurt for years after your time in military service, and the VA system is making it hard for you to get compensation for that injury now. They think you are faking your injury or exaggerating your pain or just milking the system to get money. I know you would much rather not hurt and be able to do your job or your normal, daily activities without pain rather than get a check for that injury. But that money could help you see a doctor, or even better, an orthopedic surgeon who can actually treat your pain and help you overcome the injury. It might help you pay the bills for you and your family since your injury makes doing what you need to do at work difficult.

How I can help you as an Independent Veteran Medical and Orthopedic Consultant

Maybe you have asked your doctor or orthopedic surgeon, whether that’s a doctor at the VA or one outside the VA system, to write a Nexus letter on your behalf, but he or she wouldn’t do that for you. I hear all the time from Veterans how their doctors say they can’t or won’t do it – conflict of interest, too busy, or any other number of excuses.

You’re frustrated by the months, or even years, that you have waited on the VA system to deal with your claim. You’re angry because you feel like they are giving you the run-around, making you want to give up.

Maybe you have already filed a disability claim and were denied for your injury. Maybe you tried to complete it without an expert’s Nexus letter, or you got one from a PA, chiropractor or nurse practitioner and were denied. You are angry the VA’s rater doesn’t believe your pain was caused by your duties in the military. You would benefit from the expertise, the experience of someone who actually treats injuries like yours – an orthopedic surgeon, one who has three board certifications – to argue on your behalf that your injury should be service-connected. An orthopedic surgeon who understands the physical demands and stresses the military activities placed on your body and how those turned into injuries or degenerative conditions. An orthopedic surgeon who understands and can argue how one injury can cause a secondary injury in a joint above or below the first injury or on the other side of the body. An orthopedic surgeon who can review your records, your duties in the military, and more to create a persuasive letter created just for you to give you the best shot at winning your claim.

You are frustrated by the VA telling you your pain or your injury isn’t service-connected because you didn’t seek medical attention while you were in the military. But I know how hard it is going to the doctors when your leaders make you feel like you’re weak or are pressuring you to push through it. You need an orthopedic surgeon who can argue that military service members often don’t report injuries due to the potentially negative ramifications that injuries may have on your career. You need an orthopedic surgeon who can argue that exaggeration of injury and pain is extremely rare among service members and Veterans.

I’ll be your champion, your guide and trusted advisor through this process, to help you get the medical advice and compensation you deserve as a military Veteran.

I believe that you’re a hero for serving our country. I believe it’s my sacred duty to help you, to fight for you. I want to help you fight for yourself.

My name is Dr. David Geier, triple-board certified orthopedic surgeon, sports medicine specialist, and anti-aging and regenerative medicine expert. 

I have treated hundreds of military members and veterans during my career. I understand how physically demanding that service can be and how devastating the injuries that can arise from that service can be. I can help you as you attempt to navigate the VA system to obtain benefits. I am not affiliated with the VA system at this time, but I can serve as an independent medical examiner to help argue your orthopedic injury and diagnosis are service related and to document that relationship with a persuasive NEXUS letter.

Testimonials

I just got word today that my disability increased from 40% to 70%. I would like to thank you guys so much for helping me. I really didn’t think I had a chance of getting an increase because I didn’t have medical records before my accident. You guys are great! If any veteran ask about getting help with a Nexus Letter, I will not hesitate to give them your information. Again Thank You.

-Bobby H., retired U.S. Army

I just wanted to recommend Dr. David Geier for Nexus Letters concerning Orthopedic issues. Dr. Geier did a thorough review of all my medical records and provided his medical opinion that resulted in a positive outcome for me. He was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him concerning Ortho issues. Mine were back and neck issues resulting in nerve radiculopathy. Hope this helps others as they seek medical experts to assist with evaluating their service connected issues. 

-Tom S., retired U.S. Army

The Nexus letter he wrote for me in November 2023 for my Right Knee Total Replacement Secondary to Left Knee Service Connected help me get my claim approved. I am now rated at 70%. With Dr. Geier’s two letters he has written for me I have went from 30% to 70% service connected. Thank you so much.


-Robert B., U. S. Navy, retired

Just wanted to thank you for the great work you did for me. I will tell any Veterans I see about you. I really can never express the happiness in my heart with relief. Even if the VA was to deny me, with your good work I can fight this where before I had no chance. I can see and tell that the Nexus is better than strong and I thank God for your services. Bless You, Your Family and Your Employees. 

-Frank P., retired United States Army

I talked with Dr. Geier’s office about a VA claim that was denied. The VA will try everything in their power to deny you, so I gathered all of my medical info and sent it all to his office. He reviewed it and wrote the most professional nexus imaginable, extremely impressed. He was able to get my story and medical info articulated extremely fast. My service advisor was highly impressed when I sent it in. I will recommend him to everyone I know who is fighting the VA. No waiting for an answer from the VA.

Your Nexus Letter played a pivotal role in securing a successful outcome for my case. Your thorough and comprehensive analysis of my medical records, along with your expertly crafted letter, provided the necessary evidence to establish the connection between my service-connected condition and my current level of disability. Your expertise and attention to detail were instrumental in helping me achieve a 100% Total and Permanent rating.

I cannot adequately express the relief and gratitude I feel knowing that my claim has been granted and that I can now receive the benefits that are rightfully mine. The impact of your work extends far beyond the financial aspect; it has significantly improved my quality of life and provided me with a sense of security and stability.

Your dedication to helping veterans like myself is truly commendable. Your commitment to providing accurate and thorough medical evaluations demonstrates your genuine concern for the well-being of those who have served our country. It is because of professionals like you that the VA system can function effectively and fulfill its obligation to support veterans in need.

Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your unwavering support and exceptional service throughout this process. Your expertise and advocacy have made a profound difference in my life, and I will forever be grateful for your assistance.

If there is ever anything I can do to support your work or express my gratitude further, please do not hesitate to reach out. I look forward to sharing my success story with others and recommending your services to fellow veterans who may require similar assistance.
