Judge Bedell was compassionate, understanding and made me and my witness feel comfortable talking with her. As many of the previous comments posted here are not favorable to Judge Bedell, it is of my opinion, if they had legal counsel representing them, maybe their representative was not as thorough as they could have been on legitimate claims. My reason for stating this is because Judge Bedell seemed very pleased with the amount of information and how it was presented in the overview of my claim by my representative. I have not been fond of the legal system for quite some time but Judge Bedell gave me hope that there are Judges who care about following the law and the legal guidelines they are given. My experience was very positive and I have heard others state the same. I thank Judge Bedell for her professional and compassionate approach in my case and I thank the transponder for her friendly demeanor and the Vocational Expert for her thoroughness of the job market.

She admitted that she did not review my records and she needed time. She was so pleasant but she did not listen to the VE or my doctors. What do you do when you don't qualify for SSA,( productive US citizen who worked since 15) medicaid (and you have a daughter) or food stamps? What are you supposed to do when the system, and the process turns their back on you and drags out the process until you give up or die? How are you supposed to see a doctor when you can't afford "Obama care" and you can't work bc you don't have feeling on your left side of your body? I understand some people don't deserve or have earned assistance! But what about the people who do? What about the people who paid into a system that abandons us? What about us and our children? I waited for my day patiently and at the end of this day I'm crushed! If you have her for a judge please please reschedule or ask for another judge. It's not worth your time or energy to go in front of her.

She did read all my medical reports and got the ball rolling for me. She was very respectful. My disability was approved by her.

I agree with all previous post..she shouldnt be a judge!! She denied me of disability and is WRONG. I have every intention to appeal her decision rest assure. She has no business denying ppl that have medical records to support their claim..she is no doctor,therapist or psychiatrist and shouldnt be a judge.

This woman was long overdue to be removed from the ODAR judges! Too bad it wasn't before she ruled on my case. Others are right when they say she does NOT read medical records. In fact, I dont think she reads them AT ALL. I hope she takes her menapause meds before she is allowed to judge another case. Good riddance!

I agree with the above! She does not listen or pay attention to the records submitted! She discreditted my own counselor who gave testimony before her. She also added her "personal and preduditial (sp) opinions and thoughts", instead of sticking to law. I am very disappointed in the system!!!!

Very nice, but not very good. It is clear that she does not review medical records properly.
