Dr Mark Worthen | Forensic Psychologist

Specializing in Veterans Disability Exams
for PTSD & Other Mental Disorders

I conduct state-of-the art C&P exams with United States military veterans appealing a VA disability claim for PTSD and other mental disorders. 

If you have a legitimate claim that VA unfairly denied, my comprehensive exam report, including any required nexus opinions, will provide bullet-proof evidence in support of your appeal.
