Ketelboeter v. Astrue, 07-3272

Denial of application for disability insurance benefits is affirmed. ALJ's decision to give greater weight to the state-agency doctors' opinions is supported by substantial evidence, where the treating physician's conclusion was internally inconsistent and there was scant objective evidence in support of the alleged severity of Plaintiff's self-reported symptoms.
