From California to Arizona, VAs are the worst, from being on “Wait Lists” to being “Over-Medicated.” A California VA refused to transport me by ambulance when I had a heart attack from my home town down to the VA. They said, let the wife drive me there, which was 200 miles, 80 miles round trip just to have blood draws. At the VA in Arizona, I went in for a routine Diabetes eye exam, and they found blocked blood vessels in right eye. They said I showed signs of blocked arteries and would schedule further testing. That phone call didn’t come until 2 years later when the scandal started, then my phone was ringing off the hook. The surgery went well, but the patient rooms were so filthy, I’ve seen dog kennels cleaner than these rooms. That probably explains why I went home with eye infections. I refuse to ever go back to that VA.
