feedback about Columbia Mo Va Medical Center
This VA is packed full of those kind of people that would work for free just to help a VET, wait they do. The volunteers a such a super group of people and yet I see people just walk on by or ignore a Hi! From them as they pass. One younger gentleman posted by the elevators to provide guidance to those lost, and he had not even served but his Dad did. Take time to say hello to them.
As far as the doctors, I have had one My wife and I didn’t get along with, but switching was easy and they got another doctor for me in the White clinic who is great! I have been going here for about 25 years now. My perception is the doctors can use more help and shouldn’t have to take time to escort patients back and forth, but it’s their system. The pain management section really care to help everyone, and the doctors that I have met are really good. The labs techs are nice and as painless as they can make it. Often taking time to ask how you’ve been doing.
They now have a good coffee shop, of course. And other places in the hospital are the nicest and most caring staff and doctors. They honestly want to help.
It’s a busy place of course. Sometimes parking is a challenge so use the free valet parking if in a hurry even with the parking garage that’s sometimes full. Sometimes it’s a cattle chute, because the people in front and back need to be seen too. That’s all okay. All I can say is the Columbia VA is full of people that make this VA a place worth going to.
Just a few words about the VA. All I read is negative articles on the VA.. Can't get an appointment... On and on.. Well let me tell you my personal experience with the Columbia Missouri VA. It serves several states around Missouri. I have been able to get a same day appointment .. Have a Pet scan and Cat scan done within 36 hours. Have treated me every time with the highest respect. Just had open heart surgery... Was totally impressed with the surgeon and staff. The ICU unit is not even a year old... State of the art technology. So for me... They are nothing but awesome!
Very pleased with this hospital. Easy to get to. Glad to be a veteran here.
I just called the number listed and asked for the DAV & both numbers they has rang me back to that operator. That's not good on any level, especially when I need to make a request for follow up on a previously submitted claim, as instructed by several V.A. contacts such as my doctor's and case worker's. I simply need guidance and direction and can't get a hold of someone directly. Not good! The DAV can do better by us veterans.
Employees are always friendly and go above and beyond their mandate. Five stars!
