The front desk lady in dental didn’t check us in when she saw us walking in. Instead she said hi and that she’ll be right back. She had to say “Hi” to a friend first. Can you believe that? We arrived 20 minutes early, it has already been 15 minutes now and she hasn’t returned. My husband’s appointment is in 5 minutes. I had to leave the room to find someone who can help us find somebody to check him in. By which time she came back saying she had to go to the bathroom (whatever). Still have to get an act of Congress to make things happen for these veterans. It’s very sad! If you’re wondering why it takes months and months for the VA dentist to look at your file and make approval decisions, it’s because according to this dentist he is the only dentist there and since he’s the only one he sees a lot of patients on a daily basis. Basically, he doesn’t have the time to look over files & make referrals because he is overloaded with patients. I mean it took 3 months to get an emergency appointment with him but when we got there he told us he’s doing just an exam. If it was just an exam we wouldn’t have drove 4 hours and on top of that we didn’t get any travel reimbursement for the hotel. Apparently, in order to get that your appointment time has to be before 9 AM and after 3 PM. So arrange your appointment time around those times if you need to book a room and I think they said the hotel has to be approved by the VA.

I have a degree in Healthcare, as well as business , so my views may not be particularly unbiased. But I went out of my way to use Ft. Harrison, driving the hour and a half from Great Falls, and I'm glad I did. I had a rather awkward sonogram done, but the tech who conducted it did so with the utmost of professionalism and discretion such that it put both of us at ease. Maybe she is the exception to the rule, but I wish the Great Falls facilities were lucky enough to retain such staff. I don't know if your facility hands out kudos, but it would be nice if someone could trace my chart back to my visit and extend to her my sincere thanks.

I understand the difficulties that COVID has created. Since Jun I’ve had 6 appointments, four have been canceled (Doc out for the day) and rescheduled, not days or weeks but months. It’s different times we live in. If you have Tricare I suggest using private providers, hopefully the more that use private providers, the less over worked the Va system will be,

I was slated to begin work again at fort harrison after dedicating over a year and a half of my life to them before. I explained my religious exemption to the company that was contracting with the va. Next thing I know I get an email that states the VA requested that I not work there and that the company select a different candidate.

To preface: I have been in Montana for the winter and had to move my cancer treatments from the Denver VA to the Ft. Harrison VA. While I will say that the Ft. Harrison facility is not the $20 million over budget accommodations that the Denver VA enjoys ... Ft. Harrison's staff is where this VA Hospital really shines. Every staff member from the moment you walk in the door in genuine, engaged, friendly, and truly invested in helping patients. It's been truly enjoyable working through an extremely challenging time in my life with the Ft. Harrison Team. Thank You! And special thanks to the phone operator and on-call RN (hopefully you know who you are) who made sure I made it to my last procedure and treatment, in addition to the General Surgery and Oncology Team! ... Going to miss y'all!

Blanch, the discharge coordinator at Ft.Harrison, was such a blessing to work with. Without going into detail... our family has kind of a messy situation with my dad, who was a patient there, and she was so patient with us, informative and never lost sight of MY DADS best interests, in spite of us (his own children). Thank you Blanch.

I love this place and they continue to help me. Coming up on two decades of helping me so far. One of the best VA facilities in the country.
