Customer Question
Im currently on disability right...
Im currently on disability right now. My ssdi was approved about 1 year ago after i wasnt able to return to the fire department. The problem is that i dont want to go back to work. But my doctor keeps giving me the impression that she doesnt believe that anything is wrong with me. All she talks about is hurrying up and solving the issue so that i can return to work and stop sucking up benefits. Bit then no real advise on how i can become gainfully employed like how i once was. So i sudgest volenteering but shes not letting up. Always really agressive with me. My question is do i have to go to a specific place to continue to collect disability or can i simply go to a friendlier environment.

The screening process for disability is rather extensive. I would say your doctor is out of line. If it were me I would be looking for a different doctor.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
