Best VA Care I’ve received in Texas. My introduction to the place was via the Emergency Room, which eventually lead to me being diagnosed and treated for cancer. They’re not perfect, but they’ve shown me that the majority of the staff there really does care about us and tries to give us good care. The biggest problem they have is being the 2nd largest VA Medical Center in the U.S., so they are providing healthcare services to lots and LOTS of Veterans. I hear guys say they received better care back home before moving to Dallas—but their back home was probably a small VA Center treating a fraction of the number of Vets that the Dallas VA Medical Center handles. If you’re wondering, NO, I do not work at this place, I’m just grateful for the services they are providing. Sure, I wish my Doctors weren’t under so much pressure because they have many more Vets waiting for their services. At least I know that they have the tools, facilities, and staff we need. I’ve find that out first-hand as an in-patient and out-patient.
On a positive note, I have received excellent care here at the Dallas VA. I live in Waco and changed because I wasn't treated to my satisfaction here. The other reason was I didn't like seeing other Veterans being disrespected. I have not seen this negative interaction here in Dallas VA.
I promise to God this is the worst medical attention you can possibly get! I went into this place with a dog bite as an issue @ 10:45pm it’s after 2 am and still sitting in ER without X-ray results but like always they give you a few over the counter pills and have you waiting out their shifts with them. Me LEAVING the hospital at almost 3am w/o medication or results but when I came in it was 4-5 other people in the waiting area and as I walked out absolutely 0 people waiting.
I moved here from DC area where the VA medical center is very responsive and supportive and have been calling to try to get registered/enrolled here is Dallas, so I can continue my care (I’m currently out of medication) but no one ever answers at Eligibility and it’s not safe to just drive up there without an appointment (if that’s even allowed).
This is the worst Va I have ever experienced. The New York City and California VA are by much better by far, with much more people to serve. It’s very difficult to even get through by phone to make an appointment. My primary doctor is horrible and hung up the phone in my face. The staff here is deplorable and needs to be audited. I feel like I have to go to another city to be properly treated.
My problem with the Dallas VAMC is the wait times and rude staff members. Nurse in the MRI area yelled at a patient for asking her simply if he had been checked in, she yelled and told him to stop yelling at her which he did not, another Nurse stomped out of the area when she did something wrong and got an attitude with the staff who was giving her instructions on what to do next time. I have been waiting 2 hours and 30 minutes past my appointment time and still have no time in sight of when I will get my own MRI, but they have called a man two time who already left and has been done. This place is out of control. Last time I came here the ultrasound tech told me to loss weight and that's was why I was having my alignment he doesn't know and why I'm here this place has gotten insane and needs to hire more professional employees.
everyone that helped me during my last visit did not do a good job or a great job, they were all outstanding, competent, professional and personal, to all, the team that prepped me, the GI team that did the surgery were outstanding, the doctor removed a polyp that seven previous surgeries had been unable to do, thanks to everyone and well done by all
I have been on the phone being on hold and passed around for over 2 hours. Still can't make contact with my husband's cardiac caregiver. He had bypass surgery 03/31. Clinic #7 post-op. Last Friday. Mildred Mendoza PA. Called Edward after we returned home to make some medication changes. Edward can't remember and I can't reach her.
