I am a Vet and use the Va clinic in Bradford. Nothing but the best service, medical support and attention. Not a thing to complain about. So I think the press and government are politicizing maybe some isolated problems? I could not be happier.

Thank you for your kind words, Pete. I was employed for several years with the VA. I never met more dedicated workers than those at the VA. The love and respect for the veterans by MOST staff is genuine!! These people work through lunches and overtime without extra pay because of the love for our service men and women! There just aren't enough workers to do the work! Sure people can be referred to outside care, but there's a shortage of healthcare workers in the civilian world as well! Those holding the purse strings in the VA and in the civilian world, those making money off the sick- hand over fist- are the one's at fault!! Sue them!

The VA. does have its issues. That said, I have had nothing but good service and the best care since I have enrolled in the Fla. system. I have traveled extensively and all VAs. are not created Equal. The VAs are as good as their local administrators. What congress needs to do is more over sight. The system like all big organizations have its stinkers. They are few and far between. Unfortunately, its the bad apples that stand out. Hats off to the VA workers! SOME of the administrators need to be sent packing.

I HAVE BEEN A VETERANS PATIENT SINCE 1980. I CAN TRUEFULLY SAY BUFFALO IS THE WORST IN OUR AREA. ERIE I NOW USE. I USED BATH WHEN FIRST RETIRED. THEY NO LONGER HAD THE FACILITIES TO HANDLE ME. THEY TURNED ME OVER TO PITTSBURG. TO FAR FOR ME. TURNED OVER TO ERIE FOR A COUPLE YEARS THEN TURNED BACK TO BUFFALO. HERE THE DOCTORS SAID I WAS CURED AND STOPPED MY PENSION. SO I CONTACTED DAV FOR EVALUTION FROM ERIE. BUFFALO COULD NOT PRODUCE RECORDS. TOOK THREE YEARS TO RECONSTRUCT RECORDS BY MY SELF AND DAV. PENSION RESTORED FROM VA BECAUSE DOCTOR IN BUFFALO KNEW NOTHING ON EFFECTS OF PTSD AND AGENT ORANGE. FULL PENSION RESTORED 2001. IN MEAN TIME ALLONG WITH SEVERAL OTHERS, SUE CHEMICAL COMPANIES (MAY 1980 ) WEW WON CASE IN 1983. I STILL HAVE MY COURT ORDERS AWARDING US TO HAVE SEVERAL MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN BANK IN NY. BUT VA WOULD NOT APPROVE THE CONDITIONS AND THAT WAS PART OF COURT SETTLEMENT. STILL NEVER RECEIVED MY PART OF SETTLEMENT FROM CHEMICAL . NEVER WILL ,I WILL DIE FIRST DUE TO HEART AND LUNG FAILURE AND COPD AND PADS. SO I HAVE LITTLE FAITH IN OUR VA NOW. ENOUGH SAID,FRED'S DEAD DAN

Toomey's an idiot.
Did he ever wear the uniform?

If you wanted to sue a government employee for dereliction of duties, a good place to start would be in the Senate and House. The gall of these guys is amazing. They do absolutely nothing for $174,000 per year plus perks, expenses, and political contributions, then play Monday morning quarterback at every opportunity.

I wish Solomons would stop posting these bits, but no doubt there is an obligation to do it.

The VA treats my father well in Bradford and Erie, Pa. My best friend's a vet who lives in Erie & he's happy with the hospital up there. Once, he saw a dr who wasn't very good but the VA got rid of the guy. Take care of the problems where they exist. I don't believe the problems are here.
