GoodVibes1313 Posted July 26, 2017 Share Posted July 26, 2017 For those of you working in family practice/primary care (or any specialty dealing with disability), what is your criteria for giving someone disability? Because I work in one of the poorest communities, I get requests regularly for disability. Reasons range from leg cramps and controlled/uncontrolled diabetes to low back pain (very commom) and severe CHF. I'm curious as to your approach on the cases that are not so clear cut such as pain, which is difficult to gsuge because it is so subjective. At the same time, I wonder if a 30yo should be on disability for back pain. I am curious because I was browsing through the Internet and found an older article on NPR regarding disability: http://apps.npr.org/unfit-for-work/. What do you think?
