This is a heartless ***** judge. I was denied social security for which I worked. The representative from Texas Rehabilitation and the other representative agreed that I was not capable of working. I am ill with no chance of getting better. It took him several months past the deadline to tell me that I was denied. He commented ,in the report that he had been a judge for a long time and that I didn't walk into the room like I was ill. What kind of medical diagnosis is that. Also ,one of the first sentences states that I meet the criteria for disable,but he still denied my case. After reading reviews and stats on him,it's evident that he derives satisfaction and power by denying people. He is a *******.

Ive been waiting 8 months on a descision from this judge. He has kept it tied up in editing and for some reason wont finish. If you have a descision on a case why drag it out. People need help out here in the real world.

My advice...If you have this judge for a hearing coming up...withdraw your request for hearing and file a new application. You will likely have a new hearing before he would even come out with a decision on your claim. I have a client that has been waiting 15 months and a client that has been waiting 13 months for a decision. This is absolutely absurd. We hear so much on the news about the overly easy judges. Why not about horribly bad judges.

Judge Gilbert Rodriguez keep postpone my hearing already two times last year. I'm very depress and anitexy that he keep postpone my hearing. Don't know why but my lawyer Laura Hernandez said he have everything he needs in medical health problems. I'm in pain with all of them like high blood pressure,arthicis on left knee , back pain,high thyroid etc. Last Wednesday on January 28 I had no filling on my left my arm,hand went hospital diagnosed with patpitations and tendonitis can't use my left hand in so much pain. I walk with a cane use my right hand and I'm so depress and stress can not sleep or eat my stomach in pain lose weight like crazy.So I need help medicare denied me because I don't get SSID I told them my lawyer working on it. So I need the judge help or some else to look over case because judge isn't doing his job. I need health insurance so I can go to doctor for my health problems.

openly mocked me in court and in his denial, wrote awful things about me that were not in the record. I pray to god that this judge is removed so he cannot do more harm to people.

Without a doubt the worst ALJ nationwide -- and definitely the worst in Texas, which is saying something. Asks irrelevant questions of the claimants, gives hypos out of whole cloth, won't allow witnesses even though they're a due process right, and denies nearly every claim that comes before him, albeit after 6 months to a year most of the time. I'm not sure how this ALJ hasn't been investigated by the OIG for the SSA or, at least, been transferred and reprimanded for his conduct. If you get this judge, find a way to get a new one -- drop your case, reschedule the hearing, something, ANYTHING -- because if you go forward with this judge, it's not likely that you'll lose... it's assured.

My client had a hearing 8 months ago and has yet to receive a response. Rodriguez has the worst denial statistics in the nation. I wrote our Congressmen and the SSA Commissioner's office, also asked for a review of the case. If you have had problems with this "judge" please do the same. The only way to get him out of the office is to bring his despicable practices to everyone's attention. Your congressmen are elected officials with power in Washington, don't be afraid to use this. If you think you have a strong case ask for a Committee Review. If you want advice you may contact me at

Where did they find this Judge? It took him almost a year to reach a decision on a friend of mind case. He has 95 percent blockage behind his heart and cannot work. He has had several heart attacks and is unable to work. This judge waited an entire year before making his decision and he finds him not disabled.

What a joke and embarrassment this ALJ is. How he can continue to get away with paying so little cases is disgusting and yet the administration has no problem going after ALJ's who they deem pay to much. Perhaps if everyone filed a complaint who appears before him someone will take notice but probably not.

Someone please investigate Judge Gilbert Rodriguez. Something is wrong when his approval rating is 10-12 times lower than the national average. Not to mention his cases take 6 months to a year to get a response.

This man has to be (currently) the worst ALJ in the nation and he is not particularly smart either. He never wants anyone to call a witness even though the hearing notice advises the disability claimant of the right to do so. He proceeds to ask nearly all irrelevant questions and often does not even listen to the responses given. He has an obvious agenda to deny everyone. He is an outlier who should be investigated.

My friend is due to see this judge soon and desperately needs to be on disability due to an enlarged heart condition that prevents him from doing almost anything around the house let alone work and he has to live somehow. if not on disability then he may end up homeless. what kind of man is this judge?

I agree totally. Had two remand with him and treating source RFC's. (well supported by other Medicals) placing my 56 year old lady at less than sedentary. His one and only hypo to the VE was a Medium RFC......I think he should be removed from office

He does not deserve one single star. I don't understand how one judge can approve 5% of disability hearings and is not being investigated whether or not he is being fair. There are lives who seriously need disability to see his statistics is completely disgusting.
