Under the Americans with Disabilities Act you have a right to a reasonable accommodation, this does not necessarily mean the accommodation that you want, but one that is reasonable to the employer and that will allow you to perform your job. If the employer has offered an alternative to your request and their alternative is reasonable, then they are in compliance with the ADA. You should provide a request in writing to the employer for accomodations in accordance with the ADA and should provide documentation from your doctor of what reasonable accommodations would be, and include at least two accommodations that would be acceptable. If they are not providing a reasonable accommodation, then you need to file a complaint with the state commission on human/civil rights
and/or the EEOC for a violation of the ADA and they will investigate and issue a right to sue letter based on their determination.
