The Importance of Special Reports from Treating Physicians in Social Security Disability Claims

In many cases, the most powerful evidence in your Social Security disability case will be special reports obtained from treating physicians. These reports go beyond the typical information regarding diagnosis and treatment by providing guidance as to the functional limitations, physical or mental, imposed by the symptoms resulting from your conditions. An administrative law judge cannot ignore an uncontradicted report from a treating physician if it is supported by objective evidence and is consistent with treatment records. A key role for your attorney is the preparation of this type of special report either through a questionnaire or request for a narrative statement from the doctor.
