Do All Medical Records Have to be Submitted in a Social Security Disability Case?

In North Carolina, it is not necessary to submit a specialized report obtained from a physician that is not helpful in a social security disability case. However, copies of medical records produced by a doctor's office as part of regular or ongoing treatment are submitted even if they contain unfavorable information. In that case, efforts can be made to either correct erroneous conclusions by the doctor or obtain enough information from other treating physicians to negate the damage done by a negative medical report. This is a sensitive area and you are strongly urged to consult with a competent attorney about the best way to handle this type of issue.
