Since Medical Evidence Is So Important, Should I Have My Doctor Write A Letter To The Social Security Administration (SSA) And Should I Gather Medical Records And Send Them To SSA?
SSA will gather the medical records, so you don’t have to do that. Whether you should ask your doctor to write a letter is a hard question. A few people win their cases by having their doctors write letters. You can try this if you want to. The problem is that the medical/legal issues are so complicated in most disability cases that a doctor may inadvertently give the wrong impression. Thus, obtaining medical reports may be something best left for a lawyer to do.
