Dr. Neil Novin is photographed in his office in Pikesville, MD on Wednesday, November 9, 2011. Dr. Novin was fired from his job as a consultant at the Social Security Administration where he, along with a team of other specialists, reviewed applications for disability benefits. Dr. Novin refused to review parts of cases outside his expertise despite mounting pressure from administrators who faced a severe backlog of applications and earlier this year reduced the consultants’ pay from $90/hour to $80 per case.
