Heavily biased against the mentally ill. Cherry-picks statements from doctors to support her own conclusions while completely ignoring the opinions of other treatment professionals. Focuses on minor issues such as grooming (she puts a *lot* of stock in appearance) and uses them to make completely unfounded allegations of malingering. If you haven't had the money to obtain tests or get treatment for a problem, she'll use it against you. Takes your own words out of context, twists them around, and makes it appear as if you said something you didn't. Dismisses evidence when it's inconvenient. This sorry excuse for a human being has her mind made up in advance and if it's set against you, you're screwed. I would give her no stars if possible. Thanks, Judge, for calling me a liar, relying entirely on what that fool of a doctor said, ignoring the views of the person who sees me every week (if you'd read her notes you'd know I'm really not that well-groomed), contradicting yourself, saying I refuse to take one class medication I actually take (could've just checked the list I gave you) and failing to notice that I had to tell Dr. Useless THREE TIMES that I COULDN'T take another class because the side effects are too severe. I don't have the energy to go to the appeals council. I'm done.
