When I read the evidence you used to rule unfavorable I was devastated. Omitted evidence was the allergic reactions to meds I reported. The Evidence used had important evidence omitted, while under the treatment by West Alabama Cardiology. Omitted evidence was Dr. Nabeel Memon from October 2015 until I filed for disability April 2016. After being TERMINATED when FMLA EXPIRED on my job. Your CONCLUSION was I CEASE WORKING. It's not even noted in April 2016 he was agreed to prepare paperwork for my disability. Dr. Memon was terminated before he could sign off on paperwork and continue treatment. It's also omitted he was trying different meds and test after the surgery . He even showed me the images of why he was trying to different meds. January 2015 I was not between jobs as you stated in your decision. I was employed with Tuscaloosa County Sheriff Office as a Detention Officer, in which I reported to Dr. Holley I recently had been shot with a taser for employment. And how I awful I felt after being tased. He replied " you should not have been shot with a taser with stents". I told him I tried to opt out because of my stents, but was told I could not complete training if I opt out. Omitted from evidence was Doctor at Dch April 2015 failed to order a sleep test after being diagnosed during stay in hospital. Instead just sent me back to work, then in October 2015 after surgery, said he missed it in the order April 2015. Omitted from evidence is what occurred for second surgery. I was having severe chest pain after assisting taking down a combative inmate twice. Dr.Memon seen 80% blockage. Omitted from evidence doctor excuse taking me off work. Omitted from evidence was restrictions I needed to return to work. When placed on FMLA by employer. Dr.Memon sent another excuse taking me off work until further notice. Judge McDonald/Judge Lawson took my testimony as not creditable. That means the night February 2015 when I reported Phillip Anderson condition to my supervisor, who reports it to medical staff was not creditable. That's why he didn't receive medical attention, I'm not creditable. He died because they didn't believe him or me. Then you also concluded the evidence reflects I don't have Coronary Heart disease and I'm not disable. Also omitted from doctor notes New Doctor , Dr. Toheed J.Kamal wanting to conduct a surgery 6/2016. Or as they said take a look inside because of Dr. Memon was trying meds instead of performing another surgery so soon after. I asked for a test before going back inside, an was disrespected by Nurse Practitioner Whitley over the phone. The test was similar but the uninsured test conducted over a year later in August 2017. Omitted is me showing up for doctor appointments and being turned away because of no insurance or money for co-pay. Omitted is them billing the wrong Bluecross Blueshield insurance July 2013, which in there eyes I didn't have insurance. Someone in billing was to lazy to key in new insurance, instead just clicked on old insurance information for billing. At the time of surgery i was insured by Bluecross Blueshield of Arkansas from Landers McCarty CDJR Bessemer not Bluecross Blueshield of Alabama from Greenetrack Charity Bingo. You also said the evidence reflects successful treatment. With all that has been omitted and what's deemed as evidence I disagree because lack of evidence. Also I had to go SSA doctor May 2016. Which indicated I had no medical evidence at the time I filed for disability. Someone clearly omitted evidence because I was under Dr. Memon care at the time I filed for disability. Didn't know he was force out for whatever reason. I'm sure this may not be creditable either. The evidence used to make a decision makes them look successful and destroys my character. Did Dr. Memon say he was going to file out and sign off on my Disability March 28, 2016 ? Was I on FMLA from October 2015 until April 4, 2016 the day I was terminated? Was the evidence used bias? Despite the unfavorable decision on June 12, 2018. I'm giving Judge Lawson and Judge McDonald excellent ratings *****. Because evidence in medical file exposed how lack evidence from medical provider causes undue hardship delays in treatments and benefits. I rightfully deserve since April 2016. Finally LIVING with Coronary Heart Disease has affected my life since 2013. When the VE said there was no jobs because I would be terminated for days missed. It sounded like it was in my favor. But I had no idea what medical evidence was being used to make a decision. PRAYING FOR A ACT OF GOD!

Her Honor was a very pleasant and fair judge. She studied my medical records like a good judge should. I was approved but even if I hadn't been, I was happy with her questioning and overall professionalism. Judgement was less than a month which surprised me after hearing all the horror stories.
