Saving San Francisco Va Medical Center Patients Money on All Things Healthcare
feedback about San Francisco Va Medical Center
So...the reception windows in the emergency room have the oddest, most awkward set up. You have to either be on your knees or crook your neck down to communicate your needs as a patient through this little square of an open space window. Apparently this is a new design?
Been here over an hour, only person in the Emergency Room, no idea what’s happening.
Waited for over an Hour but it was worth the wait. Beautiful Place.
In general I am beyond grateful that the VA medical system exists. I have been a patient at 5 different centers. Each one has had compassionate, hardworking, and talented staff. By far the SF VA is a stand out place. I am treated like family from the moment I drive into the parking garage...to emergency care...standard appointments...and specialized care. My life is better because of everything they do. I’m not sure where I would be without the help of the VA health system.
This facility is top-of-the-line, staffed by people who are able (and, most importantly, willing) to help you with whatever's ailing you. You will never have to wait long for an appointment, diagnostic or surgical procedure. But please be aware that this is a teaching hospital! This means that most of the people you will interact with are in the process of attaining their license or degree, so they still have their training wheels attached. If they can't do what you need done, request an appointment with their supervising physician or section head; never assume you've reached the end of the line, or that you are out of options. Remember: no matter what, in the end, you're still dealing with an entrenched bureaucracy whose default state is inertia.
As a Navy Vet that needs to come here quite often for various things, I can truthfully say that the staff is so very courteous to and hard-working for us Vets. Also, it's a very nice facility. For you Vets (and friends / family members of Vets) that haven't been here yet but will be, you will love the views of San Francisco Bay, Ocean Beach, and Golden Gate Park from the hill on which the Hospital is located.
