Not enough room here to state all of Radensky's blatant lies! Never even reviewed my medical records because they're "older" and I have no medical or income, so I CANNOT afford to see a Dr. Mountains of evidence MORE than proving several severe health issues easily amounting to a disability. He made ALL kinds of false statements and assumptions instead of asking me questions. He gave NO WEIGHT to the opinion of the physician I saw most recently because he's ONLY a PA, even though he works under the direct supervision of a Dr. This man is an IMBECILE who's apparently only concerned with maintaining the HIGHEST DENIAL RATE ANYWHERE of 61%! Almost DOUBLE that of ALL OTHER ALJ's in the entire nation!The average in CA. is ONLY 34% and his own office is ONLY 49%!

I have more than enough medical evidence to back up my claim. Stated things in his ruling that i never said. So now thanks to degenerative disc disease and Judge Radensky we will loose the last thing our family has our home I wonder how you can sleep at night after sitting and listening and watching a so blatently broken person in every way possible and then deny them. Now my family and i will be homeless thanks for that. I hope god has mercy on your soul !!!!

He is really nice guy and will let you make an argument for your case. Doesnt require an opening or closing but will sometimes ask questions regarding the records.
