The Silver Star Families of America Searches for Doctor ^ | 2009 | Steve Newton

Hello Folks:

A little help please.

For those of you that visit V.A. doctors, could you please tell us if you have had good experiences, or bad ones.

Also there is a place on the page to nominate your doctor for the best V.A. PRIMARY CARE doctor.

Thank you my friends

KEYWORDS: military; ssfoa; veterans
Today it was announced that the Silver Star Families of America is searching for the best Veterans Administration doctor in the United States. Janie Orman, spokesperson for the SSFOA stated that, “The Board of Directors wants to honor a primary care physician that was not chosen by a professional organization, but was picked by the people that matter most—the veterans.”

The Silver Star Families of America was founded in 2005 to remember, honor and assist members of American’s armed forces who have been wounded or became ill while serving in a war zone. The organization has previously honored military medical personnel who have had a direct impact on care of the wounded.

To nominate a physician for recognition by the Silver Star Families of America visit the organization’s web site at

I get my medical care from the VA.I have only met with good doctors and other health professionals.They have literally saved my life twice in emergencies.I could not pick a “best”doctor because they all have been excellent.The VA Hospital I go to is a teaching hospital and the residents are some of the best folks you’d want to meet.they are from all over the world and the US and they treat us with respect and in an unhurried fashion.I went out of state for a coronary artery procedure at another VA facility and the doctors and stafdf there were every bit as good.
As much as I disliked Bill Clinton,his VA Secretary, the late Jesse Brown,was the best man to ever hold the job.He made it right about those of us sickened permanently by Agent Orange nd he improved facilities and access.He died of Agent Orange related cancer(I believe)and his passing was unnoticed by the public at large.
The non-doctor medical staff at the hospital are like good friends-I’ve been in so much recently,and it helps when a hospital feels almost homey.
God Bless Them All.
