The short answer to that question is no. However, it’s certainly very persuasive if someone in addition to your family doctor has examined you, has ordered tests for you and has written office notes or reports about how severe your condition is. Obviously, a specialist has more training then a family doctor and judges’ tend to be very interested in what a specialist has to say. If your family doctor thinks that you should be seen by a specialist, then you should go an see the specialist and follow through with whatever the specialist says. This way you are really documenting your records very well and taking the advice of your doctors.
