I have an appointment with a doctor Monday for a physical exam. The letter sent to me my SSD indicated it was for a "physical medicine exam". I filed for disability October 1, 2010. Is this a good or bad sign in getting approved?
I submitted extensive medical records when filed, including MRI, physical therapy records and pain management records from my 3 doctors. I am 55 years old and worked at same company for 38 years. Just wondered if anyone had any experience with the exam or if this will improve my chances.
