Key Tip for PHS Officers

​If you are a PHS officer who is being referred for a fit for duty evaluation by the Medical Affairs Branch (“MAB”), it would be wise to have each of your medical care providers complete VA DBQ forms for each of the conditions at issue in your case.   This will provide MAB personnel with critical information regarding diagnoses, prognoses, symptoms and work limitations in an easy to read format that is not normally provided in the packages that they receive from officers out in the field.  It will make you look like a rock star and dramatically increase your odds of receiving the results that you desire.
