Dysautonomia and Disability

Yes! A few years ago I even gave a presentation to the Pensacola area Dysautonomia Support Group and have represented numerous claimants with the condition in disability claims before the Social Security Administration.

We are very fortunate to have a local physician who is a dysautonomia specialist:

Dr. Charles Randy Thompson
6706 North Ninth Ave, Suite A-3
Pensacola, FL 32504
850-476-8200 (P)
850-476-8282 (F)

Dr. Thompson mainly treats Orthostatic intolerance (OI), Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) & Neurocardiogenic Syncope (NCS), although he does see patients with other autonomic conditions. He primarily sees adolescent children to adults.

As a sufferer of OI/POTS, Dr. Thompson is a board certified specialist who had to give up Internal Medicine because of this condition. He returned to the University of Alabama School of Medicine to study under Dr. Cecil Coghlan. He has been back in practice on a limited basis for several years, treating only those with autonomic problems.

As stated above, Mr. Ortiz has represented more than two dozen claimants who filed for disability due to dysautonomia. He is familiar with the condition and the best arguments to put forward in such cases. Mr. Ortiz has even developed a customized Physical Capacity Evaluation (or Medical Source Statement) form for treating doctors to fill out that specifically applies in dysautonomia cases.

If you have dysautonomia and are applying for disability, contact Mr. Ortiz at 850-308-7833 for a free case evaluation.
