Why am I being asked to see SSA''s Doctors after they have 3 years and 2-3 inches of Doctors and Hospital records. Is this a red flag?

It is not necessarily a red flag.  It may be that they want something more current or non-biased.  Either way, don't assume their doctor has read all of your records before you meet.  Keep track of the time that you are with the doctor (often 15 minutes or so), and have an observer with you to verify what was or wasn't done, if allowed. 

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ
