Just wondering what the consensus is with regard to others at VA Med Centers...

#1... Spent 3 hours waiting

#2... Watched patients wait for hours before triage - in a hallway with no comfort.

#3... Crass attitudes - "i'm trying to HELP YOU" attitude - nasty as hell

#4.... I've SEEN IT ALL attitude - WHAT ARE YOU COMING HERE WITH????

#5.... ZERO sensitivity - nurses who've seen it all, with a "chew you up and spit you out" attitude.


what the hell?
Thankfully the Nebraska-Iowa VA Medical Center in Omaha has been good to me. I had an scheduled appointment, didn't wait more than 20 minutes, the doctor assigned to me actually listened to my needs--was a little hiccup concerning ordering meds but other than that everything else was very smooth. Nothing but great for me. Not like the Phoenix VA(where I am originally from)---horror stories....
