List of Dr. Bash’s Cases from Bureau of Veterans Appeals
Dr. Bash is a veteran of
Dr. Bash has done thousands of case evaluations at the VA Hospital/regional office/BVA and court levels. The below list is a very small sample list of the web available BVA cases--a complete list of BVA cases can be found at The Department of Veterans Affairs Website search Dr. Bash, Craig N. Bash M.D., Dr. Craig Bash , Craig Bash, C.N.B., CNB, and/or Bash.
A few years ago the BVA started to sanitize the BVA case reports by not including the full name of the physicians involved as experts, therefore most current cases simply list Dr. Bash as Dr. B. He have over 500 cases listed in the BVA files before this sanitization process began.
Also, it is very likely that Dr. Bash conducted the first BVA private (outside the VA) veteran nexus medical opinion in 1996, while working at the PVA under the expert legal guidance of the most famous appeals representative --Mr. John Kane (rest in peace). Prior to 1996, outside the VA private veterans nexus medical opinions were not allowed in the VA claims process as the VA had their own physicians who sat on the rating boards.
These are just a few of the new cases that Dr. Bash has successfully worked. More will be added at a later time for the convenience of veterans.
