This VA is the worst I have dealt with. I had nothing but great experiences in NY and FL with the VA then I move here expecting it to be as good. It took me 6 months to get an appointment for an annual check up. The only way I was able to get one was by contacting patient advocate. The PCP is not at all helpful when I finally did see her she down played all of my injuries. Stay far away from the Tucson VA! I have had to start using Tricare because there is no help here.
Got to be honest,VA has just turned into a bunch of health monitoring clinics,there's no longer any treatment. The volunteers are great,always nice and helpful,medical staff not so much esp. girl at desk in Bldg 57 at prosthetics desk,very rude. Tried the Choice program but seems like VA can't get that right either. If you have Access,Medicare,anything else,Don't go to the VA.
This VA is amazing. I went through the inpatient rehabilitation program and came out the other side a new person. The staff,doctors, and nurses were absolutely awesome!
My wife (an RN) and I care for my relative who is a vet. Based on our experiences, the SAVAHCS is top notch. Great care, timely, professional. The anti coagulation clinic is most professional, and proactive with telephone communication. We realize that many reviewers don't share this sentiment, but our experience has been nothing but exceptional.
Just moved here from Richmond. I was scheduled for an initial appointment with my provider, which she rescheduled and then cancelled, promised to reschedule me and has been avoiding me since. Hope i don't end up another statistic as this country throws more men and women into the meat grinder.
