I am an Iraq combat veteran with a purple heart and a 100% disability rating from the VA for severe PTSD. I had several hearings before joanna papazekos and from the very first one, it was clear that she neither understood PTSD nor apparently believes it is a disability. When I returned from Iraq in 2006, I was diagnosed with severe PTSD by a private practice Psychiatrist in Pittsburgh and then began long-term treatment with a licensed Psychologist. When I had my first meeting with judge papazekos, I had been in continuous therapy for 11 years. At the hearing I presented written summaries from my original Psychiatrist, the Psychologist I saw for 11 years and a third Psychologist who I recently started seeing. In addition, I presented the Veterans Administration decision indicating I was 100% disabled from PTSD. I also presented evidence of being unable to work due to severe mood swings and evidence where I had tried to work part-time at a local Home Depot but had to quit due to triggered reactions I had at work. I had overwhelming evidence showing the severity of my disability problems, however, joanna papazekos did not take any of that evidence seriously. She denied my application for disability status. I can only conclude that she either 1. knows nothing about PTSD and its effects; or 2. harbors a resentment and/or feeling of discrimination against Veterans.

This judge was rude, and even insulting. dragged me through appeals for 5 years even after her first denial of me was remanded. Her vocational expert even told myattorney after a hearing that my case was in the bag, yet she still denied me. Gave no credibility to my dr's, Psychiatrist, numerous meds i'm on, or ER visits. I had to refile because of her. If I would get her again, I don't know what i'd do. This woman should be A prison guard, not someone supposed to judge fairly on poor health.

This judge cherry picked my disability case and I lost due to extremely unethical and irrelevant reasons. I am not only disappointed but disgusted.
