If you're trying to have your therapist or doctors show up for your social security hearing I will tell you that is very unlikely. But since you so say you're already on SSD the question becomes in what court do you seek their appearance? Expert witnesses to not come cheap and the subpoena fee is the least of the cost.

Since you say you are already on SSD, is this for a review hearing? If so, it may be difficult to get your therapist and other medical providers to show up to court to testify, but many are more willing to assist by drafting written statements or completing forms. Medical records can be subpoenaed by asking the Court to do so as early as possible if you're not represented. If the Court does a subpoena, there is no cost to you. As the previous response indicates, though, a little more information is necessary to understand what type of proceeding you're requesting a subpoena for. My response is assuming it's for a review hearing, though I'm not sure. I have also had clients talk to their therapists in person to discuss providing testimony, and some are willing to do so if their schedules allow. Best of luck to you.
