The National Veterans Organization of America 3 Reasons you should join – Tip # 9

Posted on

You should meet these 3 doctors.      They are available to you.


but first I have a riddle for you.

A dumb man enters a store to buy a toothbrush. Since he cannot speak, he imitates the action of brushing his teeth, and the clerk understands, so he gets his toothbrush. Then a blind man comes in the store to buy a pair of sunglasses. What does he do to let the clerk know what he wants?

(Answer is below)


Craig N. Bash M.D., Neuro-Radiologist
7831 Woodmont Avenue, Bethesda, MD 20814

Phone: (301) 767-9525 – Fax: (301) 365-2589

Dr. Bash is a disabled quadriplegic paralyzed veteran who was injured in medical school in 1984. He received his B.S. from the United States Air Force Academy in 1979 and a master’s degree in business from Golden Gate University in 1981 while at Nellis Air Force Base. He graduated from the Military’s Medical School (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences [USUHS]) in Bethesda Maryland in 1985. He went on to specialize in Radiology and Neuroradiology (11 years of combined medical training following college) after which he worked as a civil servant on an Apache Indian Reservation, then in private practice, then as Deputy Director of Medical Services for the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA). While with the PVA his job was to do site visits at the VA’s spinal cord injury centers and write medical evaluations for veterans in need of assistance with their medical problems. He is currently on staff at USUHS and is a guest researcher at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the experimental neuro imaging section. He is board certified in Radiology and is a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiologists and is as such only one of about 2000+ Neuroradiologists in the United States.

He has been doing Independent Medical Evaluations (IMEs) for disabled veterans since 1986. As a radiology specialist he is able to write opinions in support of any medical problem in the orthopedic, urinary, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive or cardiovascular areas. As a neuroradiology sub-specialist he is able to additionally fully evaluate the nervous system. He often will utilize imaging studies or imaging study reports during his patient medical evaluation research to help better evaluate the medical diagnosis and to better evaluate any potential service causation.

He has worked extensively with both Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) and attorneys who represent veterans. He is accredited to review medical records for veterans and has done so for the DAV, PVA, American Legion, Purple Heart, VFW and, of course, The National Veterans Organization of America.

As a disabled veteran he is empathetic to both the medical and administrative needs of his disabled colleagues.

Dr. Bash currently has a very high success rate in claims at both the Board of Veterans Appeals level and with the regional offices/decision review officer teams. He has helped hundreds of veterans receive medical benefits. Many of these veterans have received significant monetary retoractive awards, the value of which totals in the millions of dollars range.

Phone: (405)364-3887 Fax: (405)364-4826



Dr. Butler has been a successful leader for the medical profession for over thirty years. While in private practice of general and vascular surgery, he was a tireless patient advocate. After suffering a spinal cord injury, he became a disabled veteran advocate while working for the Paralyzed Veterans of America in Washington D.C. Dr. Butler has brought a lifetime of advocacy to help veterans with health claims before the Veterans Board of Appeals, and has done so for over five years. He believes that the men and women who have given so much to their country deserve to have the best chance possible for a favorable outcome.

Answer to the riddle:

 He tells the clerk, since he is blind, not dumb. Many people immediately think of forming their fingers into circles and putting them to their eyes.
