The Social Security Administration (SSA) gives considerable weight to the opinions and statements provided by a claimant’s treating physicians and other medical professionals involved in the claimant’s treatments. Experienced Ocala disability lawyers will first make sure the doctors meet the standards established by the SSA and then will assist them in providing the detailed reports requested by the SSA.
In order for the opinion to be controlling, the doctor needs to meet certain criteria established by the SSA.
Good Ocala disability lawyers will assist doctors in producing statements that will be given the controlling weight they deserve. The attorney will help facilitate the doctor’s full cooperation in providing detailed notes and opinions, as well as any other information that is requested by the SSA.
For more information about doctors’ opinions and statements or to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our Ocala disability lawyers, please contact CJ Henry at the CJ Henry Law Firm, PLLC by calling (352) 304-5300.
