Sanders-Hall v. Berryhill

United States District Court, D. South Carolina

March 21, 2018

Melissa J. Sanders-Hall, Plaintiff,
v.
Nancy A. Berryhill, Acting Commissioner of Social Security Administration, Defendant.

          REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION

          Shiva V. Hodges United States Magistrate Judge

         This appeal from a denial of social security benefits is before the court for a Report and Recommendation (“Report”) pursuant to Local Civ. Rule 73.02(B)(2)(a) (D.S.C.). Plaintiff brought this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) and § 1383(c)(3) to obtain judicial review of the final decision of the Commissioner of Social Security (“Commissioner”) denying her claim for Disability Insurance Benefits (“DIB”). The two issues before the court are whether the Commissioner's findings of fact are supported by substantial evidence and whether she applied the proper legal standards. For the reasons that follow, the undersigned recommends that the Commissioner's decision be reversed and remanded for further proceedings as set forth herein.

         I. Relevant Background

         A. Procedural History

         On August 14, 2012, Plaintiff protectively filed an application for DIB in which she alleged her disability began on March 22, 2012. Tr. at 87 and 174-81. Her application was denied initially and upon reconsideration. Tr. at 105-09, 111-16. On June 14, 2016, Plaintiff had a hearing before Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) Paul Elkin. Tr. at 31-74 (Hr'g Tr.). The ALJ issued an unfavorable decision on July 14, 2016, finding that Plaintiff was not disabled within the meaning of the Act. Tr. at 8-30. Subsequently, the Appeals Council denied Plaintiff's request for review, making the ALJ's decision the final decision of the Commissioner for purposes of judicial review. Tr. at 1-5. Thereafter, Plaintiff brought this action seeking judicial review of the Commissioner's decision in a complaint filed on August 7, 2017. [ECF No. 1].

         On October 11, 2012, neurosurgeon J. Marc Guitton, M.D. (“Dr. Guitton”), informed Plaintiff that magnetic resonance imaging (“MRI”) of her lumbar spine showed degenerative changes with mild-to-moderate stenosis at ¶ 4-5. Tr. at 300. He assessed lumbar spondylosis, lumbar disc disease, lumbar radiculopathy, and lumbar stenosis. Id. He advised Plaintiff that treatment options included medications, injections, therapy, and surgery. Id.

         On December 12, 2011, Plaintiff presented to pain management specialist Allen L. Sloan, M.D. (“Dr. Sloan”). Tr. at 328. She reported sharp, aching pain across her lower back that was exacerbated by maintaining positions, standing, walking, sitting, and climbing stairs. Id. Dr. Sloan observed Plaintiff to have difficulty rising from a seated to a standing position; a stiff and slightly forward-flexed gait; decreased range of motion (“ROM”) to extension; tenderness to palpation in the midline and paraspinal facets at ¶ 3-4, L4-5, and L5-S1 and over the bilateral sacroiliac joints; positive Patrick's sign; and pain on straight-leg raise (“SLR”) testing. Id. He administered bilateral L3-4, L4-5, and L5-S1 lumbar facet and sacroiliac joint injections. Tr. at 328-29.

         On February 20, 2012, Plaintiff reported that her pain had worsened. Tr. at 303. Dr. Guitton observed Plaintiff to have limited motion in her back; lumbar stiffness; positive bilateral SLR testing; and intact strength and sensation. Id. Plaintiff indicated she would consider surgery. Id.

         On July 17, 2012, Plaintiff complained of pain in her lower back and left foot. Tr. at 337. Podiatrist Mackie J. Walker, D.P.M. (“Dr. Walker”), observed Plaintiff's left heel temperature to be increased with significant effusion and swelling. Id. He stated he was unable to palpate Plaintiff's pulse on the left side of her foot because of 2 bilateral pitting edema. Id. He observed decreased sensorium bilaterally on monofilament testing and abnormal sharp/dull and light touch sensation. Id. He noted 4/5 muscle strength, limited dorsiflexion, and exquisite pain on the left Achilles tendon. Id. He described a palpable washboard-type feel to Plaintiff's bilateral plantar fascia that he considered to be consistent with plantar fibromatosis. Id. Dr. Walker indicated ultrasound images showed multiple interligamentous legions. Id. He stated examination of Plaintiff's Achilles tendon revealed a very hypoechoic signal and apparent disruption and tear on the medial aspect. Id. He placed Plaintiff in a controlled ankle movement (“CAM”) walker and referred her for an MRI of her left ankle and midfoot. Tr. at 338.

         On July 19, 2012, an MRI of Plaintiff's left ankle showed severe distal Achilles tendinopathy, tendinitis, and interstitial partial tearing, as well as mild thickening of the proximal plantar fascia. Tr. at 339. There was no evidence of plantar fibromatosis. Id. An MRI of Plaintiff's right ankle indicated an unremarkable Achilles tendon; very minimal signal abnormality at the plantar fascial insertion; mild hyperintensity surrounding the lateral fascicle; soft tissue edema over the anterolateral ankle and foot; unremarkable medial and lateral flexor and extensor tendons; fluid within the sinus tarsi projecting from the posterior subtalar joint; and intact talofibular, calcaneofibular, and deltoid ligaments.
