Hi Elderly, my exam for SS disability sounded almost identical to yours except my doc never touched me. His office was in part of an old house, I only saw one staff other than him and they didn't speak much english. He had me sit on the table and asked me about 2 questions and that was it, what a joke. In fact, during my hearing the judge got very upset when I told him about this exam. He said it was quite obvious what was going on as the "independant's" doc report was so different than all of my other doc's reports. The judge really got upset and spent quite some time talking about how bad this doc was.
As long as you have your docs write reports that say what is going on with you, the judge should put more emphasis on those than these quacks. Good luck!
