Dr.Neekhra was called to evaluate my condition in the ER just as he was leaving for home. He called my home that evening with a script that I believe saved my eyesight. He also followed up quickly after a biopsy to see that I got proper care with a Rheumatologist. So grateful to him. I wear...more

I am deeply sorry for your loss. Unfortunately I am just a neurologist, not a disability doctor trained for disability claims. I can document about diseases which I am treating in my notes, not the diseases outside brain. It is up to lawyer and judge who can fight and decide about disability claim based on brain or other than brain issue. To help my patients, my staff is well trained to provide my notes and additional documents to lawyers even if myself not directly related to such claim cases.
