My family is very and sorely disappointed in the VA. My father a Navy veteran needs a pacemaker. He’s 89 years old. The hospital in our area is where his and my mother’s cardiologist wants him to go there to get it put in. The VA in Philadelphia gave us one heck of a time. They won’t authorize to send him where he lives and gave us a bad rap. They told us it would cost $60,000 to operate if he won’t have it put in the city VA.

I should be able to receive services from outside the VA when I feel I am not receiving appropriate care from within the system.
