    The VA is completely corrupt, the way that you force veterans through all that paperwork just to deny veterans their benefits.

    I have been a patient of the VA for over 10 years. When I first started going to the VA, clerk customer service and doctors’ bedside manners were horrible. Additionally, no one answered their phones. This combination of negative experiences caused many veterans to abandon the VA. Fast forward to today, doctors now see me as a partner in my healthcare decisions and clerks are way more professional in providing customer service. To me, the greatest improvement in the VA is the improvement in communication whether it is in person, via telephone, or secure messaging. The VA has finally realize that patients deserve, professional customer service, a say so in their healthcare decisions, and to stay inform and educated about any pertinent issues as it relates to the veteran’s healthcare and well-being. Obviously, nothing is perfect. However, in my view, the VA in general has improved tremendously to the point that I can honestly say to my fellow veterans who previously walk away from the VA. Go back and patiently give it another try. You have so much to gain because the VA is for you who served our country.

    The VA is completely corrupt, the way that you force veterans through all that paperwork just to deny veterans their benefits. That they were promised during the beginning of their service. The VA is obviously making getting your benefits incredibly hard so they don’t have to pay out. That fact is completely obvious to any veteran who’s ever tried to use the VA as a service.I really needs to be understood better by tax paying Americans because they think they’re helping veterans. I personally hate the VA for how they’ve treated veterans. I promise you that the problem is far too pervasive for anyone leader to fix it.
