Mississippi District Court Reverses ALJ

November 3, 2015. In this case, the claimant was denied benefits after the ALJ did not give any weight to the opinions of two treating physicians, indicating that the claimant had substantial limitations in performing activities. The district court reversed, holding that the ALJ was required to consider several factors before declining to give the treating physician’s opinion weight, including: the length of treatment, frequency of examination, nature and extent of treatment relationship, support of the opinion offered by medical evidence, consistency of the opinion with the record as a whole, and the specialization of the physician.
