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.
