First off I assume he is treating with a cardiologist and not a primary care or family doctor...SSA is going to want records from a specialist. You'll want the doctor to fill out a medical source statement form which basically provides an opinion on ability to work. I've attached a sample medical source statement for you to submit or use as a guide.

Doctor already something like social security asked. New attorney wants something personal note from doctor.Kindly help

Lawyer: John, Attorney replied 2 years ago

I see. I suspect what the attorney is seeking is something a treating doctor is not qualified to opine on for all intents and purposes. Specifically, if he's not requesting the medical eval, he's asking for something occupational - i.e., an opinion on your dad's ability to do his past job or any job within his qualifications in the economy. A doctor is not an occupational/vocational expert and has no basis to make that remark. A vocational or functional capacity exam would be best but those cost money. Anyway, that's what you'd ask the doctor for - provide perhaps a job description of his past work to the doctor and ask if he'll opine in writing that your dad is not able to do the specific job. I'm not sure what credibility the ALJ would give it for the reasons stated above.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
