My firm works on disability cases like yours all over, but mostly in East Tennessee, and this is a problem that a lot of our clients have. There really isn't an easy answer to your question. Depending on your condition, maybe you could try going down to Vanderbilt for treatment, or you might just have to ask around Sparta (and maybe up in Cookeville), trying to find a doctor that will help you through your disability claim. One of the hardest things to do is to get some doctors to understand that they need to not only help you deal with your medical condition, but also help you deal with the consequences of your medical condition, if they can. If you decide you want help appealing your private disability claim, feel free to contact me.
