Treating Source Inconsistent with RFC

See Brook v. Astrue, 2011 U.S. Dist. Lexis 147113, for a decision dealing with an ALJ the finds that the treating source’s opinion is inconsistent with the ALJ’s residual functional capacity finding (RFC). “An ALJ’s RFC finding is not medical evidence and cannot be used to discount a medical opinion.” Kathleen Overton, Social Security Forum, Vol. 34, No. 2 – February, 2012.
