Disability evaluation is the physical exam required by the Social Security Administration (SSA) in order to receive disability benefits. Dr. Howard is an experienced physician who provides the necessary evaluation, supporting documentation, and paperwork needed by the SSA so you can get the financial and/or medical help you need for your disability.
Her disability evaluation may also allow you to get special accommodations at your job so you can continue to work.
If you have a disability that impairs your ability to work or provide for yourself, then you may want to contact Oasys Preventive Health Services for a consultation. The SSA has a list of conditions and physical limitations that qualify for disability benefits. Dr. Howard is well aware of the criteria and determines if you would benefit from a disability evaluation when you come in for a consultation.
Some of the conditions and limitations that may qualify you for disability benefits include:
Dr. Howard is a general practitioner who has many years of experience managing chronic illness and understands how the disease affects everyone differently. She uses her clinical judgment to determine the best course of action for you when you come in for care.

Dr. Howard may also provide you with other resources for additional benefits. She’s a primary care physician who offers you ongoing management of your health and disability to help you live your best, healthiest life.
