State Agency Physicians

On Behalf of Christian Ayers
  |     |  

During the preliminary stages of a social security disability claim, an individual’s medical records will be evaluated by a physician retained by the Social Security Administration to assist in deciding whether an individual is disabled. For this reason, it is very important that your treating physicians provide as much information as possible regarding your functional limitations imposed by your impairments to hopefully influence this state agency physician’s opinion. A lawyer familiar with the Social Security Guidelines can assist in this aspect of the process.
