These people care about veterans, plain and simple. The negative reviews are mainly from veterans who cant get what they want when they want it. Newsflash, that doesn't happen anywhere in the world. I've been satisfied with my care here and yes it might take longer than private practice, but where else can you get all your appointments taken care of in a single day. Let's face it, some of us veterans are not the friendliest or best communicators. I've never seen a serious issue neglected, most 1 star reviewers probably have some personal vendetta against VA systems. This place is special and unless the negative reviewer is specific about their gripe, it's a personal attack nothing more.
Appalling. Visited the ER today, after a 5 hour wait, in triage the man taking my vitals asked me to guess my weight, instead of weighing me. He also said that working for the VA was like “banging his head up against the wall.” I was in a wheelchair and he sat his Tupperware container on me like I was a shelf and said “here you can do your work for me.”
The nurses were all loudly talking amongst themselves and joking around on their phones. Aside from the over worked pregnant one who did my ear nose and throat check with a lamp from across the room and said “don’t see any drainage.” I assume to avoid getting her baby sick. Send the poor thing home. Were my ears and throat properly checked? I’m not a doctor but I don’t assume so.
On one occasion I was discharged without paperwork and the nurses and the Dr. literally waved at me in my room and said “hey dude you can go home.” To again call my Primary care team.
On an ankle/foot injury I sustained which was non weight bearing I was told that I probably have ligament damage, I was handed an ankle brace, and told to check with my primary provider. No crutches nothing. After waiting for 5 hours I finally literally walked out of the ER.
All this ER will do is refer you to your care team, and all your care team will do is refer you to the ER. This VA is shameful or at least the experiences I have had with them personally have been terrible. I can say without malice but rather with complete objectivity that the staff I have encountered are unprofessional, unmotivated, & do not conduct themselves with any sense of pride whatsoever. I am embarrassed this is the level of care given to our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines! This is exactly why VA healthcare has a bad reputation. I am disgusted and will NEVER return.

I live in New Orleans but visit up here in these hills quite a bit. I can see why the good seem to leave and go out west ! The phone nurse on week days at least on Tuesday must be a real fox , she doesn't even have to bother to look on your chart to see what the V.A.'s giving you that you might be over taking . how difficult is it to tell you Baclofen God forbid |I pushed 3!on the menu What's it with these mountain girl's up here they can't handle stress unless they dump it on you. Dang! I was a nurse in Vietnam, and handled dust off patients coming in better than this nurse.
People are treated poorly, staff is too busy on their phones to care about patients. Would not trust them with any ones life!
Wonderful nurses doctors and volunteers. Really has changed my mind about the VA care of patients. My husband has received great care.
