Judge Hess has gotten worse. He used to be a pretty decent ALJ but now he's turning down cases he wouldn't have thought twice about when he was in Charlotte. Maybe it's government targets but it's no coincidence that Greenville judges average 42% denial rate. There's no spread there at all and I guess it's the same all over. Hess has opted not to rock the boat and deny righteous cases to keep his average up. Shame on him.

Does not review medical records or diagnostic tests. On 3 instances in Mr. Hess's denial, he stated for each impairment, there were no medical records, findings or lab results backing claimants impairment thus the claimant is not credible. Yet, within the records, even the ones Mr. Hess had ( copies submitted to me by SSA ), there were a multitude of medical records, imaging, labs and Doctors statements..How crooked is the system? My attorney informed me the judge made an error of findings and we appealed to the review council . The review council wouldnt even review the "proof of error", these crooks, blatantly sent it back siding with the judge?? My attorney stated they were wrong but also stated that It's the government, if they tell you the sky is brown, you best believe it is brown. He said cases before Judges are a toss of a coin. How true it seems!

This judge is a joke. You have many medical experts oppinions backing your claim, "but" because he doesnt like the answers, he gives them no merit or weight! He is a judge, not a doctor, but he feels the need to, in so many words, say, "your doctor doesnt know what he/she is talking about". He doesnt review all medical records. ONE, example of MANY inconsistencies from Him ( he wants to point out inconsistencies of the claimant, lets point fingers at him! Had A CT scan showing, cirrhosis, enlarged spleen, Gal stones. His words "claimant states he has enlarged spleen but no medical record proving such" ( realy? who is inconsistent now?) Diagnosed with Agorapbobia, social phobia, bi polar, fear of being around people. The judge seems to believe, if you have such phobia, surely this would be observed and a problem being around people in a venue setting such as an "emergency room" REALLY? So if someone has agoraphobia or social phobia, this would prevent them from doing something thats not an option. Medical Emergency, hospital, Emergency room ? this isnt dinner, its a MUST.
