The Role of the Doctor and Social Security Disability: Medical records are where disability cases are won and lost. One of the things we do for our clients is work to compile medical records to create a comprehensive directory of your disability. Through so doing we can make sure the ALJ has a full picture of what your life is like living with your disability, and how unrealistic it would be for you to work. If there are gaps in your medical history, the SSA may order a consultative exam. These are not outcome determinative though. SSA weighs the opinion of a doctor with an established treatment history with the claimant over the one time evaluation by the SSA doctor. One of the key pieces of evidence that a Michigan Social Security disability lawyer will rely on for your case is the medical opinion of your treating physician. Medical records are where disability cases are won and lost, call us at (248) 398-7100 for a free consultation or contact us with a private message.
