  1. This Dr keeps denying me treatment under the VA’s Mission Act. It’s people like him that is responsible for Veteran suicides.
    VA, shame on you for having belligerent, uncaring people like this.

    1. Good morning James,
      Sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied with the VA Health services. Most every VA facility has a Veteran Advocate who is there to help veterans who have concerns about there care. The Veteran Advocate reports directly to the VA Medical Centers Facility Director. Please contact the Veteran Advocate as soon as you can.
