Medical Issues in Social Security Disability

Author Dr. David Morton has personally made more than 50,000 disability determinations for the Social Security Administration. As a Chief Medical Consultant, he hired, trained, supervised, and evaluated the work of both medical doctors and clinical psychologists.

Now, Dr. Morton has made his expertise available to claimants' representatives with Medical Issues in Social Security Disability, a revealing and practical look inside the SSA's medical evaluation system. This comprehensive book explains how the SSA interprets key Listings:

•   What symptoms, physical signs, laboratory test abnormalities, and regimen response are needed to qualify,
•   The medical data which should be included in the claimant's file to obtain a favorable decision, and
•   Common issues faced by the claimant or the SSA, with a heavy focus on residual functional capacity.

The book is filled with nuggets about shortcomings in submitted medical records, the types of mistakes adjudicators are most likely to make, where generous allowances are provided claimants, ailments and tests frequently overlooked by treating doctors, and much more.
