Quality of care

Being in the VA system as a patient for 17 plus years I have noticed that there are many Drs that are uncaring,unresponsive and unreachable.

I was recently put on insulin and my primary care Dr when I asked said,I cant tell you how to use insulin,you have to figure it out on your own,I kept crashing and almost died several times,it took my psychiatrist to tell me how to use insulin.I've encountered other past patients of this Dr who have had similar experiences.


Why are Drs like this allowed to practice with the VA,why are they not disposed of,instead,when a vet complains they are switched to another Doc and the old one is allowed to continue.

I firmly believe that if the VA wants a reputation like that of the civilian sector they should hire and retain better Dr.s
