I am very Disappointed in my results and waiting from July 10 2018 to Feb 2019 to get a unfavorable decision I have never ask for anything that I haven’t worked for. I have worked busted neck that required surgery,cracked bones that I ducted taped to keep going , gout so bad I’ve cut my boots to get them on , so sick that most people would be in the hospital. Rolling out of bed most days to keep a paycheck coming in. I never missed a day at work not even after my neck surgery.But in June of 2015 after recovering from a busted leg seems like everything hit me at once. My neck pain tripled like all my nerve ending we’re on fire. Diabetes set in . High blood pressure. Started getting gout in my knees, wrist, elbows, shoulders, hands, swelling to where it looked like it was going to burst. I have trouble walking I fall a lot. Now my sight comes and goes it might last a few day or a few months. Just got it back in my left side and all sudden my right side went paralyzed with so much pain everywhere thought it was a stroke. ER for that was over 7000.00 it was named bell Poulsie . I have lost my medial assistants at the umc . Many more issues going on. I’ve lost and sold everything I ever had in my life. Took all my retirement out trying to hold onto and pay my family bills. I haven’t worked would love to and why would I want disability if I didn’t need it. I made more in two days than I would on my disability in a month....Mrs Porciello everyone is not out for a handout. But I really needed it to keep going to the Dr and all my medications . I know u have a job to do and your very good at your job. I asked for a favorable decision but I guess my case wasn’t strong enough. But I will never give up fighting for my rights. God Bless you and your family.

She does play games with the reps and routinely denies strong cases that should be approved. Its more than frustrating to receive a decision it took four months to get back on an extremely strong case for an aged person which should have been easily approved. She knows these bad decisions will be challenged and I suppose it took that long to write a decision adequately in an attempt to survive appeal. Sometimes I feel sorry for the decision writers. Honestly, I don't see how she sleeps at night.

My hearing was under Judge Porciello & I was very happy with her. She was professional, patient, reviewed my file thoroughly & rendered a very fair fully favorable decision on my case. She is a tough judge to get a favorable decision from, but I had 7 years of continuous medical documentation, a very strong case, complete & current medical documentation from my doctor up until a week before my hearing. So, if you have a strong case with all of your medical history, then you have a very good chance for a fully favorable decision.

This ALJ will often play games with representatives. For instance, she will solicit favorable VE testimony that would mean a win at step 5, but then deny the case at step 2. All the while with a very fake smile on her face. Doesn't matter how strong the case is either -- I suspect this is because she rarely gets a serious challenge to her rulings. If you get this ALJ, try to get your hearing rescheduled so you can get a new one. Or move to another state. If you get Porciello, you'll likely lose. You're only other option is to find a way to get her to recuse herself. Good luck with that!

I have had a couple of hearings with this ALJ. She is very conservative, but will award very strong cases. Let's rep do opening and initial questioning. If a doctor says the claimant is limited in a serious way, you better have good clinical and diagnositic support for that opinion.

I have add the judge and abe is completly unfair. Have medical that states herniated disc and other diagnose and she still denied. The so call vocational expert that social security use reads out a book and tell you about different jobs you can do. but cant tell you where to apply for these jobs. How can these people you how much pain your in. Its your money that is paid in.

This judge is 100 percent unfair. I have severe depression and chronic lower back problem that has medical documentation for 8 years. I went bankrupt bacause of my disabilities. This judge lies about medical evidence and turns the meaning of medical evidence upsidedown. I wish could see her face to face and tell to f off. She is a bi-ch. She said my Mri's showed improvment in my back condition which was lie. Thats OK because I will never pay another dime into the system. I just got a high rating from the VA so one way or another I will get my money. As soon I turn 65 I will get my money that I paid in. My wife is on social security disability and she see doctors on almost a daily basis and get tons of medicines, so then again one way or another social secuity will pay. Why are they so dumb by turning down the disabled claims?

This judge denies valid claims, even when two or more treating physicians state that the claimant can't work. Her denial rate supports this assertion.
