Always first rate care here. Yes, there are some people that work here that don't care about their job or the veterans. You will find people in any hospital that are like that. The people that do care and do their job far outnumber them. The VA in general gets a bad rap, especially in the media. Congress has cut funding every year for decades, and the people here do the best with what is left. The Denver VA hospital and it's employees work hard to give the best care to every vet.

I'm a veteran that has been in the VA health program since 2008. In that time this was the first that I really required urgent medical attention. So when I arrived at this so called VA hospital after tripping and hitting my face on a fence post, I was surprised and appalled when the ER doctor, after making me wait for two hours, just looked in my mouth without even first making sure that I didn't fracture my jaw and decides just to send me upstairs to dental for a "consult".

Now at this time I have a lower tooth that was indeed knocked loose... to the point that when I sneezed, one of my top teeth broke the side off it later that day. Closing my mouth is painful and chewing anything is incredibly difficult.

So I get up there and the very rude lady behind the counter, who treated me like I was a second class citizen and clearly a personal inconvenience to her, without really putting anything into the computer, tells me that I should just head on out and the doctor would call me via phone "later". So I'm waiting for this call for the rest of the day but never comes. So I call the next morning. As I said, by then my mouth had gotten much worse. Guess who answers the phone. Little miss "ray of sunshine" herself. I tell her the situation and she tells me that I am "not eligible for dental care at their facility" and that she can mail me, not email me, MAIL ME, as in three to five days later, a list of cheap dental resources that can maybe help me.

Years and years in their system, jumping through all of their stupid little hoops and the one time that I actually need their assistance, they don't even do a half-assed job of even looking at me and pretty much say "Can't help you, get the hell out."

My advice, DO NOT GO HERE! You'd be better off seeing a tribal witch doctor than these people. At least the witch doctor will at least TRY to help you.

The way a person is treated is pure garbage. I personally know several veterans who feel the same way. All the doctors want to do is keep throwing drugs at you hoping to find a cure instead of finding the problem and depending on the labwork instead of working on the problems or symptoms. They just keep telling us that we are just getting older, I think that we know that! Not everyone can drive that far and the supposed veterans vans will not pick a person up because the vans will not go that far. All they want from a person is FREE DONATIONS THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE TO WORK ON! And the patient advocate expects you to do her job for her !!!

After having a medical problem that was neglected for nearly 5 years I FINALLY had surgery through the VA. The incision isn't fully healed STILL, and the surgery was in September 2017. THE VA NEEDS TO STOP LETTING BOULDER MEDICAL STUDENTS MAKE DECISIONS. IN FACT, EVERY TIME I SEE THE VA IN DENVER I ALWAYS SEE A MEDICAL STUDENT WITH ABSOLUTELY NO CONFIDENCE IN THEIR ABILITIES. Not to mention the last student was WEARING A DISGUSTING WHITE COAT WITH STAINS ALL OVER IT, but he had a really cool beard and pays his tuition so I guess its all good right?

Guess what the medical student said the last time I saw them in early December? "It looks nearly healed." The wound still isn't healed. On top of that, the real doctor never examined me. It's January 2018, and I'm still not healed!

Do yourself a favor, purchase private health care.
