Drs Support letters for ESA assessments

I am lucky my Drs have always been helpful in supporting letters stating I need help and daily care from 2 friends to live independently and require home visits for face to face assessments. 

What are your experiences with Drs supporting you with letters for assessments.

    Hi there and welcome I think some doctors are supportive but letters are only really any good if they can explain how you are affected by your condition on a daily basis. Lots tend to just give a diagnosis and treatments . You are the best person to explain how your condition affects you daily
