I agree he's a azzhat...

My experience with VA?.....don't get me started....I gave up years ago.
Apparently I never existed, didn't file correctly, or....my favorite "some that were discharged under Clinton fell through the cracks".....screw the VA....

I retired from that group of fools in 2013, medical, RN, about 25% were ex vets or ex military who gave good care or tried to, rest slacked jaw goons who would be sued in the real world. Disgusting Leadership, incompetents advanced due to a Quota system, flat disgusting. I was a total Pain in their Dorsal Gluteal my last 2 years....They tried to cut care to my Patients, I kept going over their heads to advocate for their care. The VA Needs a total overhaul and new policies including removing the worthless Union that hampers quality care and promotes clueless token leaders. A TOTAL 3rd world operation.

Thanks from racer

Of all the money the gov pisses away, the one thing that they should do is honor the contract we made with our service members. I never served but have a dad and uncles and grandparents and cousins who have. I have plenty of buddies from hi school and college who did some time in the Sand. It just really grinds me that we give money to any piece of waste that can manage to get to our border alive but we treat those that served like this.

Thanks from 11e40

I have had generally quick service at my local VA for several years, a hundred miles north of Phoenix, especially when my issue was urgent, although there were some mysterious wait times to see a podiatrist (5 months) and an optometrist (3 months).

Of course the VA knows what their wait times are: wait times are used to calculate bonuses for management.

I am grateful that my doctor understands metabolic syndrome.

The VA management is driven by Bonus checks, (Bonus ...heres your Bone-as) which is outrages.... Bonus for doing a half *** job.... on my dime... Gov Bonus check...what a joke this is a Federal Job Like a GI, ATF,ATC, Food and Drug, what Bonus, you serve the people. Ive been to several VA facilities, Out Pt service in some better then others, ALL had poor In Patient care. DEA had busted several MD's for over writing Narcotics ...at my facility we had a spot visit one day by DEA and NC state after a bunch of narcotics were found in a home 2 block from the hospital.... got to sing like a bird when they talked to me about med issues. Doctors write for Narcotics and create addicts rather then schedule a surgery to fix a issue in general. Did I mention the VA needs a Over Haul.
