DOCTORS: Resources for Doctors
The following resources have been created just for you. We know that the Social Security Disability rules and regulations can be complex, and sometimes, completely arbitrary. It is a difficult system to navigate. It is no wonder that doctors who want to help their patients obtain benefits often end up frustrated and giving up.
Please know – we are here to help! We will let you know what your patient needs from you, so you can get back to doing what you do best – practicing medicine. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We love working with doctors who want to help their patients with this process.
The main thing to remember is that your patient needs your help to win and you can make a big difference in their case.
