feedback about Columbia Sc Va Medical Center
place should be shut down always a run around and they constantly loosing your record. A investigation should be done on this facility. This place has worsted my depression and is more harmful to veterans than good.
I called the Dorn VA in Columbia about transferring me to the Greenville South Carolina location , I was amazed in a matter of minutes the Lady on the phone with me had me taken care of ,she was so pleasant and kind her name was Tara . Thank you for how you treated me , Jack Olson
The first set of staff personal were very professional. Vitals were quick. Replacements came and after waiting watching the emergency room door, the new admin person tried to tell me that their back up was from multiple ambulances arriving. I found this statement quite funny since I was sitting right where the EMTs would to have roll their patients. Waited more than 5 hours. Two other Veterans were waiting more than 8 hours before me.
Miss my Syracuse VA who always have more than one doctor on staff. I will never go to the VA in Columbia, SC again. Thirty+ years of military service, arrive at the ER with difficulty breathing, swollen throat, vomiting, dizzy and chest pains and still was waiting more than a five (5) hours. They have my medical records and know that one of my service connected disabilities is a heart condition.
This is a very good place you can wait for a good bit but they help u alot
If I could give less stars, I would. I came to the ER with severe pressure in my LUQ with pain. I signed in and was told to have a seat. After about 20 minutes of sitting there while the desk staff chatted up, I asked one of the other patrons how long he had been there. I asked because I didn’t see any movement of staff attemepting to come out and greet us or assess us in anyway. The gentlemen stated that he had been there since 7pm the night before; it was 3:45 am. He also stated that at 7pm, the ER goes down to one doctor and that all of the beds were full. I immediately went to the front desk and stated that I wanted to leave because the gentlemen afar stated that he had been waiting since 7 pm the night before. This is absolutely not the service I expected to receive from the VA. You mean to tell me there isn’t enough money in the budget to hire additional staff, namely physicians, to care for patients who come through the door with emergent situations. I don’t know everyone’s situation, but sitting and waiting 8+ hours for care is on the other side of ridiculous. As I drove away, there are banners hanging outside speaking on how veterans are thankful for the care received at this hospital. I don’t know if they received compensation, but this veteran cannot say the same thing. I guess if you are not dying when you walk through the doors, if you can stand the wait, you may be there for an excessive amount of time. In a time and age when ERs are moving away from these excessive wait times, not the VA and not for veterans. FYI, I have been in charge of an ER and there is no way I would have stood to provide this horrible level of care for service members. I would have been fired and my career cut short for such lapse in care. You all should be ashamed of yourself and the piss poor service you provide.
