VA Disability Exams
If you are need of a VA disability exam, you can either:
1) Contact the VA to start the process (for an initial evaluation, or reexamination of an established service-connected condition). There is no guarantee that you will be assigned to Dr. Hopen, but you can request to have your examination in Oak Harbor, WA.
2) Contact Ree Medical (for reexamination of an established service-connected condition).
How to request a copy of your final report:
If your examination appointment was through REE Medical, please request your copies from your assigned advocate.
If your examination appointment was through Veteran Evaluation Services (VES), per VA directive, Dr. Hopen is NOT authorized to provide you with the results.
To request a copy of the VES exam report, you'll need to fill out a Freedom of Information Act or Privacy Act Request. Click to download the form (VA Form 20-10206).
