Medical Records

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.
