feedback about Va S. Arizona Healthcare System
I'm disabled like a lot of us in the VA Hospital System are. I go in for a scheduled appointment every 3 months and have always been taken into the Doctor on time for the last 3 years. All you have to do to receive such care is show up 15 minutes early and not cancel appointments constantly. My buddies that don't follow those simple rules are always complaining about poor service. If you served in the military you should know how to follow rules. Your appointments and clinics are orders you must abide by. Otherwise you suffer just like you would if you were still on active duty. It's your duty to cooperate with the system. It works for me and my buddies that follow those simple rules. So it blows my mind that some veterans complain over and over again about poor service and the health care here.The medical assistance I receive here is far better than any care I had outside of the VA Hospital System. Outside of this system I waited 1 hour at least after showing up early for a scheduled appointment. Many times pharmaceutical sales people just walked in and were taken immediately with no wait. I'm treated with respect here and I was just an E4 when I served. Thank God for this place!
I have been getting my medical care at the SAVAHCS for the past 7 years. I have, for the most part, good caring doctors and nurses. On occasion I have run into a doctor who was unable to "hear" me just as I once ran into a doctor who deliberately disregarded the pain I said he was causing me. My favorite primary doctor left because he could not stand all the computer work. My current primary doctor is someplace between ok and good enough. I must add that I have been treated respectfully most all of the time and the care I have received (while not always what I wanted) usually took care of the issue.
Great veterans hospital. The people who work there care. Most problems are bureaucratic in nature. I worked as an electrician for 10 years there, 2006 to 2016 almost constantly. The improvements were awesome. I am an Air Force veteran.
I am a retired combat vet and 100% SCD. I have been seeing these doctors for the last eight years, and while there are some who give the VA a bad name, this VAMC has bent over backwards to help take care of me and provide for all of my medical needs.
I have been hospitalized there several times over the last five years, with the latest episode being a few months ago when I contracted Valley Fever.
The doctors are amazing people who give forth their all when it comes to healthcare. The nursing staff for the most are kind and caring with even the vast majority being soft spoken.
The services that I have with the Tucson VAMC range from Cardiology to Respiratory all the way down to the Prosthetics Department and I can't speak highly enough for the hospital as a whole considering I had been to some of the worst VA Hospitals in the United States.
I would like to offer my deepest thanks to the Agave Clinic and PACT 2 for their unending kindness and care in dealing with my health and for reaching out to Tri-West who is part of the Veterans Choice Program encompassing care within the community.
This hospital, along with their staff and Medical Teams have treated me by far the best as human being and a Veteran instead of being a number or as a bother to their time/efforts.
Oh my gooood. I came to the ER for a basic med, not a controlled substance or something that gets me high. I couldn't get it refilled at home because I'm traveling. The PA, Richard, was a complete axxhole and said he would NOT help. Could not believe it. he even made some smart a$$ comments when I was leaving. I'm still in shock. I've been to some bad VAs but this is the worst.
