The VA at Clinic at Fort Harrison is amazing. So many great services and wonderful people that will do everything possible for vets. Thank you !
My husband and I drove 2 hours from bozeman to this hospital's ER at the suggestion of the doctor at the Bozeman VA clinic because they didn't have the equipment to do an ultrasound at the Bozeman clinic. My husband went to seek evaluation of two symptoms, one being numbness, tingling, and weakness in his hands and the other being pain in one leg that both I and the Bozeman doctor think could be a blood clot. The doctor at fort Harrison ER was extremely dismissive, indicated that he only wanted to address one thing in the visit, and then told my husband after 5 minutes or so that he was certain it was just carpal tunnel in both hands and he was giving my husband some hand braces, despite my husband clearly stating that his pinkies were also numb and tingling, which wouldn't be the case with carpal tunnel. To which the doctor responded by saying "in the coming days I want you to pay attention to your pinkies" my husbands hands are and were numb/tingling at that moment, including his pinkies but the doctor did not listen. When my husband was clearly unhappy with this conclusion and the lack of consideration from the doctor, the doctor stated verbatim; "if we're going to have issues, you can go somewhere else"
I've been going to Ft. Harrison for years. The doctors and staff provide high quality health care and are very supportive of veterans concern. they really care about Vets. Appointment scheduling has always been outstanding. Much better than private care.
No acute psychiatric care, rude doctors and staff is too busy socializing . If I could give a zero I would.
On 20180422 myself and an injured Soldier arrived at the VA ER needing immediate medical care for a severe case of TBI. We were both in uniform, were denied care, and instructed to leave because he was not registered with the VA; and registering him before medical services could be applied would've taken too long. This was a criminal act and fortunatly the professional team in St. Peters were able to assist my Soldier.
It's really disheartening to see that the VA can function and recieve funds given the lack of care and the lives of my troops are so easily dismissed.
