What Is a “Nexus” Letter?
In order to qualify for Veterans’ disability benefits, the Veteran must be able to show that a current condition or injury began during military service or was aggravated by experiences or exposures during that service. The VA requires medical evidence which shows a “nexus” or connection between what happened in the military and a current medical condition.
Properly composing a Nexus letter involves a complex and thorough process in which Dr. Brodner reviews the Veteran's entire C-File including all DBQ and C&P exams, Service Treatment Records (STR), private medical records, all previous VA service-connection and DRO documents, and lay statements. He then uses findings from peer-reviewed literature and evidence-based medicine, combined with his over twenty-year experience as a practicing Otolaryngology-Head and Neck surgeon and Sleep Medicine specialist, to write a Nexus Letter which effectively presents the Veteran's case and maximizes the chance of receiving deserved disabiliy benefits.
