    I had 6 doctors who all said I was disabled and unable to work because of my severe mental health issues. He said that all of their statements were “unpersuasive” or “unconvincing”, refused to consider their professional opinions and medical advice and denied my application. Fuck this guy. He’s an asshole.

    This judge obviously knows nothing about compassion or mental health. Goes against medical records that state the health of a patient, LIES, and is still somehow doing these type of cases. My mother was recently denied and I have watched her suffer for years, YEARS! She has fibromyalgia, severe arthritis, is bipolar 1 and many more things that I won’t go into at this time. I am livid with the way people who hurt are just tossed to the side because this one person is able to go against medical professionals. This man needs to get a new career.

    He has no business being in this position. He ignores the medical evidence from the primary physician and makes the disabled person feel like a real piece of NOTHING!!! QUESTIONING THEIR MENTAL CAPACITY AND PROBLEMS THAT THEY HAVE HAD IN THE PAST, AFTER THEY HAVE SUFFERED ENOUGH FROM PAST ABUSE??? He needs to be in congress as a demonrat.

    This ALJ should be investigated for corruption. He ignores the testimony of witnesses. He ignores the medical evidence. He does not abide by social security law or administrative hearing procedure. I wonder if he is paid to deny all claims.

    Judge Rippel is a VERY nice judge. Allows for an opening and closing remarks. He will go over preliminary info and employment history w/ client, then he will allow the rep to question client. He will cross.

    Judge Rippel was very fair. He was polite and understanding. My advice is to be completely respectful and honest!
