Your Ocala Florida Disability Law Firm Explains Your Doctor’s Role in Your Claim
Your doctor is the individual most familiar with your impairment and the treatment you have received for it. Your Ocala Florida disability attorney has explained below why your doctor’s opinion on your ability to work is important and how he should assess your impairment for the purposes of a disability claim.
Your doctor’s professional opinion on your ability to work, subjective as it may be, will be quite important. Thus, your doctor should use his best medical judgment and expertise to assess your symptoms and determine whether or not they are consistent with a medical diagnosis. If this medical diagnosis is one in which an individual would be unable to work or creates limitations, your doctor should explain his findings to SSA.
Your doctor need not compare your experience with a particular impairment to another’s experience or to the “average person’s” experience. SSA understands that some individuals will be more limited as the result of an impairment than others. This is why your doctor’s medical opinion on your particular impairment is so necessary.
As you move forward with your claim it will be important for your doctor to discuss his role in more detail with your Ocala Florida disability attorney. Contact CJ Henry Law Firm, PLLC today at 352.304.5300 for more information.
