Can we get a Covid shot at Santa Fe Vets Clinic? 74 year old Nam Vet.
Why are all the phones/extension Busy. I have been trying to get through for 3+hours.
excellent Sushi!
FAKE BOOK won't let me post a link as it is against the way Fake Book stops informtion from getting around . . check John Hopkins hosptial they did study on Mask . The masks are worthless only good for a whole 12 minutes then the virus is n you and all around you
Excellent pasta shells for today's lunch!
Thank you to all the health care professionals for all you do. Check out zstitchery.com for some added protection during your work rotations and clinical. They have a great selections of scrub caps and masks.
I've been using this facility for many years. The actual patient care is top notch. I could not be more satisfied. Physicians and clinics are great. The Administrative side of it basically sucks. If it had a 5 star rating, I would give it 1 star. This has nothing to do with the current Covid situation and restrictions because it has been this way for years and continues to get worse. Patient Advocates never answer the phone or call you back. I can follow proper procedure on Secure Messaging sending endless messages and nothing! Typical reply is "we'll forward it." At the moment I have to wait until January to get and answer from something the Dr & I just talked about the other day. Very poor management.
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?
