Why am I getting your emails when I am with the St. Louis VA systems.
Why does it take so long to get an appointment for a CT Scan?
Why won't the VAMC pay our caregivers? Do they think they grow on trees?
Is patient advocacy and community care open? It's been weeks now and have not received any calls back from someone that can help me.
I'd like to thank all the folks who work in the Transportation Department who make sure we get to our appointments on time and back home again-many,many thanks-I so appreciate this service!
I have taken the time to read the remarks on this site and frankly I am disgusted with the ability of individuals to speak down to the staff and VA hospital. This is a free Nation, if you are not pleased with the wait times and inability to meet your physicians, there are many others outside of the hospital who will take your money to give you the items that you feel that your deserve. During the course of my experiences at the VA hospital in Albuquerque, have been exceptional. I have been able to get the treatment, I have required in a very timely manner. The staff of the hospital have been the most patient individuals that I have met. I have seen so many of my fellow Veterans be abusive to members of the staff. That is wrong. Who do you think you are? I have seen this personally. I know we all are there to seek help but do you know the times we are all living. I feel if you have a grudge against someone, perhaps you look at yourself the issue is looking at you in the mirror. Through this difficult and arduous time, people across the world are focusing their attention upon this viscous monster. A predator who has overtaken our ability to venture from our homes, visit our family and friends, and our ability to view the great wonders of the world we all share together. We should thank those that are risking their very lives to help the great masses, which have become ill due to this horrendous pandemic. “...Let there be no sectionalism, no North, South, East or West. You are all dependent on one another and should be one in union. In one word, be a nation...” George Washington
We know that you are concerned about protecting yourself and your family members from COVID-19, and so are we. We need to reserve as many N95 masks for our medical staff as possible during this pandemic. To alleviate the demand The Scuba Company has a reusable alternative option for you. Ocean Reef Group, makers of a full face snorkeling mask, has decided to open up possibilities for other uses for their equipment. Just a full face mask limits you to only a physical barrier; however, with a full face mask, adapter, and filter it provides adequate filtration for breathing air. The adapter will convert Ocean Reef snorkeling masks, and others as well, into non certified PPE. We want to do our best to help convert snorkeling masks already available in people's homes into something that seems to be chronically hard to find at the moment. We are in this together, let’s reduce the spread and flatten the curve. Contact us for details and pricing. • #scuba #snorkelmask #health #wereallinthistogether #padi #covid2020 #covid19 #dukecity #america #nmlife #purenm #supportlocal #santafenm #fullfacemask #albuquerque #newmexico #riorancho #igers #instagramersnm @TheScubaCompany
Has anyone ever had Spine or Chest Cavity surgery at This VA?
I had a dental appointment this morning. For 10 minutes I tried to park I was tailgated yelled at middle finger thrown at and generally felt like I was in a toilet of disrespect and angst. I canceled my appointment cuz this is the second time I can't find parking. Maybe that's the way the VA eliminates part of their what they call us issues or problems?
Congratulations VA! The story of the dog visiting his owner was the best thing ever. Great care of a man who gave so much and an easing of some of his pain. I am so proud of the Albuquerque VA system.
Sad that our VA will not allow raising of funds for our veterans to help pay costs to attend the Veteran Golden Age Games from donations on campus, like so MANY other VA medical centers do for their veteran athletes? our athletes have nothing to do with the CFC.
