What is a Nexus Letter?
A Nexus letter is a document that establishes a connection between a veteran's current medical condition and their service-connected condition or military service, often provided by a qualified medical professional to support a VA disability claim.

To obtain a medical nexus letter, you need to request one from a qualified physician. Ideally, the physician you choose is a specialist in the field that encompasses your health condition. For instance, it would be best to request a letter from a psychiatrist or licensed psychologist if you are seeking benefits for depression or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Depending on your medical condition, you may need to schedule a face to face appointment with the physician.

Due to the high demand of Mental Health Services (MHS), we have a strict late cancellation and no show policy so we can offer that reserved appointment time slot to another patient.
Our goal is to provide prompt access to psychiatric services to our clients.
