The VA services can be as good as any hospital in most any community. The downside is in my view and experiences there is a widely known fact there is no accountability for those employees who mistreat us veterans AND a real credible act of retaliation against any vet or VA employee who speaks up or out.

Being a disabled female veteran I’ve seen huge improvements. But there is so much more need for change! My PCP ignores any questions or input I have. The pain management clinic is stifled by bureaucracy.

Over all I can’t complain, I do have a problem with my back and for some reason the VA avoids that. Whatever else I need they have seen that I receive it medications, equipment, therapy and surgery.

I have not been back to the VA for any reason. #1 the doctor at the Women’s clinic gave me a diagnosis without even looking at my problem. #2. I cannot get the optician to allow me to get my eyes fixed close to home, as I have no one to go with me. So I don’t go anymore.

I transferred to the Austin VA in March of 2021. I was not able to be scheduled for an appointment with the Sleep Clinic until July and, even though I need a diabetic eye exam, the soonest I could get an eye appointment was August. This is much too long to have to wait for care!

Overall I am just a number that slipped through the cracks and not important enough to them to get the care I needed many years ago.
