Error for ALJ to discount medical report because it was obtained after claim filed and on advice of counsel. It's common practice in Social Security cases to obtain further medical reports in support of claim. ALJ's decision to discredit medical reports must be based on something more substantive than simply the timing and impetus of medical reports obtained after filing of claim. Post - McDonald severity ruling.
