Va Want's Us To Seek Treatment

Question

Recommended Posts

What gets me about the VA telling vets to seek care through the VA is that the system is almost inaccessable to many vets due to lack of facilites, lack of doctors and a antique drug formulary. Just getting to my hospital means a major trek and awful difficulty finding parking. My foot is all bandaged up, and I somehow have to get from parking to the actual hospital where I limp with aide of walker or hijack a wheelchair. My hospital has the valet parking but often the lots are full when you get there so I end up taking the shuttle bus. This is no problem for a healthy person who can walk with ease, but for any vet who has mobility problems it is hell. I have often seem elderly vets struggle to get on the bus. Nearaly every other vet has a cane or a walker. I only go to the VA to get drugs. If I could find a could pain doctor who would prescribe for me I would probably not darken the doors of the VA. The VA wants to own the care of all veterans, but this is an illusion if you don't have actual access.
