What If My Doctor Doesn’t Agree That I Am Totally Disabled ?

Since Social Security disability applications focus on the medical proof of symptoms and their impact on function it can become quite challenging if your treating doctors do not agree that you are totally disabled.

There are usually three reasons this happens.

-First, most often the problem is your failure to complain, or explain, to the doctor, just how difficult your life has become. Many people get to like their doctors, they trust them and they do not want to let them down. Therefore, they minimize their symptoms and problems when they go to the doctor. At the visit they say they “are ok” or that “things are stable.” Often, however, the truth is that life is challenging and the medical symptoms limit the ability to do even basic activities of daily living. Tell Your Doctors the Truth! Do not put on an act for your doctor. We often encourage clients to talk about the person that they see in the mirror and describe that life to the doctors – that bypasses the “ego from talking.” The more you tell your doctors, the more information they have, the better they can treat you!

-Second, some doctors just do not believe in the disability programs. They do not believe any of their patients should get this assistance, even if they paid for it with their Social Security FICA taxes. If your treating doctors express this attitude you need to have a long talk with the doctors and consider whether this is the proper relationship.

-Third, some people consider these benefits but truly are not “totally disabled” but are impaired. That is, there is much work that they cannot perform, but probably easier or less physically or mentally demanding work that they can complete and they should seek those jobs and not file a Social Security disability benefit.
