Medical evidence and particularly any medical opinions given by your treating doctor or psychologist about your functional capacity are critically important to all SSDI and SSI claims. At Jarvis & Modun we work with your doctors, psychologists, and therapists to give Social Security a complete picture of your medical conditions and how they affect your life and ability to work. Some claimants believe that it is enough to simply have their doctors say that they are disabled. This is not true. Social Security does not consider statements from doctors saying that a patient is “disabled” or cannot work. What Social Security needs to see from your doctors are specific and convincing statements about how your medical conditions affects your functional capacity and why. At Jarvis & Modun we know how medical conditions are likely to affect your ability to work, and we know the right questions to ask your doctors to bring out the type of medical evidence that Social Security needs to see. If your doctor believes that you are disabled, let Jarvis & Modun ask the right questions and get the right kind of evidence to prove that you are disabled. By and large, cases are won because of good and convincing medical evidence.
