BEST JUDGE EVER. I am 19 year old white male from Arizona . At the age of 15 I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and was prescribed Xanax 2mg x 4 times a day. Due to the side effects of my drugs, I can not work. However, I need them to manage my condition. The judge was understanding and granted me full disability. Never met a more understanding judge!
I am 60 years old. From 2014 until 2016 I I was disabled with a non-union fracture of the femur. I also had medical history of soft tissue sarcoma. First occurrence was in 2000 and a second occurrence in 2002, and advanced degenerative disc disease. Even by the rigid DDS standards, I have a disabling condition, and should have been allowed SSDI. but that did not seem to occur to the “judge.” My doctor generated a letter indicating I was not able to work full time, even at a DOT sedentary level, but this was also disregarded.
Had court last month and I’m a medically retired vet apparatus to him I can work because I tried to find a job Because I have 4 kids in o provide for which nobody would hire me!!! Started stating that I said certain things which I never said … Twisted things I said in court to his favor to were it made it seem I wasn’t disable. I serve my country I get fucked up and this is how he treats wounded veterans .. I can speak English well.. Oh he’s not disable .. He has hearing loss but rt he has hearing aids he’s not disable. I get migraines take medication everyday but yet don’t see doctor everyday. Oh his problem has dissminish in his words. Wait till it happens to one of his kids or grand kids then they will really know how unfair the system is
Today i went for 2 hearing and i was granted ssd 🙂 so happy wish all the best to all
THE WORST JUDGE EVER GOOD LUCK ALL WITH HIM
HE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE COURT (JOB)
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 after having two open hart surgeries ,2 strokes,two peacemaker and back problems i have contact senator John McCain and also he can not believe that i was not approved i did an appeal.So will see also have new diagnoses now ptsd and also seizures .Best luck to all with this Judge you will need it
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.
