I have been receiving treatment at my┬áVA facility for about two now. About eight months back, I walked in to the VA complaining about horrible pain to my right knee. I spoke to the front desk and told them every time I walk for more than an hour or so, I experience pain that had been increasing over time. I was told they would leave a message for my primary care doctor and she would get back to me. While I continued to follow-up, I was not able to see a doctor for 12 weeks…and when I finally was seen, it was by an outside practice provided by the Veterans Choice program! When I saw the doctor he informed me that my ACL was torn and the pain I was experiencing had been due to pins that were in placed in my knee at incorrect angles. This is just another example of poor care at the VA…
