Tony I would take the forms in personally to your Doctor have them in an lage envelope, with your name and address on it and have a cover page with your written request that you want your doctor to fill out and complete and sign the attached forms, and when he/ she has done so and they are ready, ask them to contact you and that you will pick them up in person! ( that way they can't tell you that they are in the mail or they must have got lost or what ever!) After you pick them up make sure you have copies of all of them and then give the originals to your SS. SSD is famas for rejecting the first time or two so like Rosi said just be persistent! If rejected the first time I do think I would hire a Lawyer that does this type of thing on a regular basis, allot of them will take their payment after it is approved and since allot of times SSD is approved as retro-active to the time of original application or original time of disability, you could possibly get a pretty sizeable starting payment, and Lawyers will some times accept their payment from that! It might be worth your time checking into it anyway!
Good Luck to You
