Here in California, we have neighborhood VA outpatient clinics. These clinics are good at a lot of things, BUT, they make us veterans go to the main VA facility for labs, CAT scans and MRIs. Oftentimes, the clinics are based in offices that have a full imaging department, yet we are not able to take advantage and are forced to travel to other facilities. Scheduling at these larger VA facilities is a pain and requires longer drives. Can’t I just be examined near my home?
