The neurologist record must be super clear and detailed. It can’t say just “can’t work”. It must say neurocognitive disorder, Parkinsonism. This is a clinical diagnosis so it must be detailed.

Suggest cognitive impairment exam as well.

I’ve been through the entire process. Your doctor must document everything. The doctor’s notes must say something like progressive neurocognitive disorder, Parkinsonism. Something that clearly falls in the category the social security agent can clearly see. Sloppy doctor notes will hurt you. Parkinsonism does not have a biomarker so it is a clinical diagnosis. If you have any dat scan that shows positive it will help.

SS always turns you down the first time. Take letters from Dr indicating you can not work
Take letter from employer that you cannot perform your duties. Persevere and try on your own before getting a lawyer. . But if you do get one who specializes in SSI. Of you are accepted you will get compensation from when you first applied. Good luck
