VA Medical Centers - Your Opinion


"The Veterans Health Administration is the largest integrated health care system in the United States, providing care at 1,233 health care facilities, including 168 VA Medical Centers and 1,053 outpatient sites of care of varying complexity (VHA outpatient clinics), serving more than 8.9 million Veterans each year."

I have only received care/treatment at two VA Hospitals and one VA Outpatient Site that I can recall. (I have performed volunteer services at various facilities).

I have no complaints.

Not really important other to showing the end results by the VA. Care system.

Am in a Rehab facility 3 weeks then to the Hospital for X Rays and removal of 31 staples. XRay showed the angle plate with 2 screws supporting damage and potential internal blem for another word.

Hope I am not boring here but just an insight into a happening and conclusion with positive results.

I see there is a new VA medical center in Charlotte. I'm glad because I'm considering a move there. I don't really care for the one in Salisbury. Any feedback on Charlotte?

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.

DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what the hell?
My Phoenix VA experience

#1. True - I've seem folks wait 8 hours in emergency

#2. True

#3. I've not seen this

#4. I've not seen

#5. I've not seen
