TO ALL INTERESTED PARTIES,
Someone from the State Department sent to me my ORIGINAL x-rays and other medical reports which should have been physically included in " the package" which was to support my SSA Disability application.
My requests for information were for copies, since I fully expected that the ORIGINALS resided within already submitted application "packages".
Try to imagine my surprise when I opened the envelope and got these items.
Since I have the originals as opposed to certified copies then I must assume that this information WAS NOT considered in either the original application, or the request for reconsideration which was timely filed by me when the first application was denied during 2016.
Furthermore, the orthopedic report clearly states that I should be "carefully evaluated" for a "total shoulder replacement" (item #5, under "recommendations").
Finally, the psychiatric report, while mischaracterizing my conduct during the interview, REACHES EXACTLY THE SAME CONCLUSION as the report relied upon by U.S. District Court Judge Michael P. Mills, when he found me to be "suffering from a mental disease or defect", within the meaning of both the DSM 4 (as related by mental health professionals at the Department of Justice) and the relevant federal statutes on mental health evaluation to determine competence to stand trial. In the case of Judge Mills and his findings with respect to me, I was found "incompetent", which has legal consequences, including, but not limited to, the complete inability to do any job.
As these reports find me both physically and mentally disabled, within the meaning of the law, I cannot help but believe that, had they been actually included and considered fairly, along with the x-rays, then I would already have been awarded full social security disability benefits, all the way back to 2012.
I submit that the SSA should take the time to actually read the reports and to look at the x-rays this time and then take the steps needed to correct their mistakes and oversight with respect to my case.
If you need a copy of any of these, I will make them and have them sent to you.
If they do not immediately wish to do this, then I respectfully add the following names to my witness list for any Administrative Hearing of this matter:
Tiberiu Dobranici, M.D. Internal Medicine
Dr, Liiu Andrian, M.D. Orthopedic/Trauma Specialist
Radu Florescu, M.D. Psychiatrist
Each of these individuals is available through the Bio-Medica Medical Center Floreasca, Calea Floreasca, Nr. 111-113, Sector 1, Bucharest, Code Postal: 014455, phone: 4021-311-7793 or 4021-311-7796 The email is as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please advise as to whether or not any action is required on my part and whether or not I may expect a finding of disability, in advance of any hearing of this matter as a way of resolving this case in a more timely and less expensive fashion for all concerned.
Thanking each of you, in advance, for your cooperation and assistance in these matters, I remain,
Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.
