When I first moved to Maine, I was asked if I would sign up at the VA. I replied when I’m dead take me there. They can’t make it any worse.

Not 2 months later I broke a foot and ended up at Togus VA.

I’ve experienced 7 VA hospitals, 5 Military hospitals, and 3 civilian hospitals in my life. I’ve never been treated better than at Togus for the past ten years.

I was taking my friend to the one in Atlanta, horrible. We had to arrive 4 hrs. BEFORE appt. time to make sure we got a parking space. Once there, I walked through those doors and I thought I would scream. There were patients EVERYWHERE! In wheelchairs just shoved in corners. There was a line for Diabetes treatment, the line stretched as far as I could see.

My friend had been hit with an IED, had spinal injury and a TBI, after being seen and being prescribed even more drugs, it was another 3 hr. wait in the pharmacy.

He has had one spinal surgery and was told he must have another one or eventually he would suffer paralysis, he was scheduled for the surgery and it was cancelled by the VA because the Dr. was fired and he would have to get on the list again!!!!
