Agree with the previous comments. He is biased. ALJ routinely goes against treating source opinions even when they are consistent with the evidence as a whole. When multiple treating physicians and even consultating physicians are in agreement on limitations and the AlJ still goes against these opinions then you know something is up. why do certain ALJ's believe they can play medical doctor and God.

Nice smiley-puss who is pleasant in the hearing room and a nasty creep in his opinions. I really do not know how he sleeps at night. He has condemned many legitemately disabled people to lives of abject poverty. He has adopted a definition of disability different from the standard that is contained in the social security statutes and regulations. The protection we all pay for with our social security taxes is not available in his hearing room. He denies claims by ignoring treating opinion evidence and just making facts up out of whole cloth. And there is nothing we can do about it. Northern Arizona no longer has the benefit of the social security system that they paid into because of this creep and the others in this ****-hole of an office. My advice; if you are disabled and live in Northern Arizona: move. There is no fair hearing in this office, much less before this "judge."

He denied my disability.Many of the facts he listed in his decision were wrong. I feel he did not listen. One issue he got wrong was listing arthritus as a condition in my left leg when in fact my calf muscle and Achilles tendon were destroyed by gangrene.
