My husband and I will be moving to Missouri, hopefully, in the next few months. He is a veteran and will be using the medical facilities there. Has anyone ever had any dealings with them or know of anyone who has?

My husband has been going to the VA hospital in Columbia, MO for many years. Without a doubt, they are the best. He has had heart surgery there and received the best care imaginable. Over the years he has developed other health issues and concerns that the staff, doctors and nurses, alike, have always shown compassion, knowledge and treatment that we both believe to have been the best.

Up to date facilities, clean, friendly staff. And as a wife of a veteran, I am always treated with respect and encouraged to participate in his care.

Convenient location in the center of the state in a city that offers much for just about anyone. Honestly, I cannot recommend them any higher than I do.

If you would like additional information about the Columbia VA, DM me and I will explain further.

Yes, please do, it really has met all of our (his) needs and expectations. We travel almost 2 hours one way just to go there. I would drive (he is not allowed to drive now) further if needed just to have the care he receives there. He does have a brother that has went to the St. Louis VA, but has stated that he did not really care for the treatment there. No specific reason, just not as thorough. good luck.

Oh, by the way, I really like your name 'under your name'. If I was still a dispatcher, that would have been my choice as well. Fits, ya well...
