What planet is this writer on? VA Doctors do EXACTLY what their administrators tell them to do. LOCAL administrators tell their Doctors to "Keep the Veeterans happy" so they will not be complaining to their congressional offices. There is nothing that a LOCAL Administraor hates more than a Congressional Inquiry. It looks good for VA Central Office to make these claims but the reality of the system is that VACO has no control over individual Medical Center Directors. As long as those Directors can maintain a low profile, they can keep their little kingdoms and be lord of all they can see.

You want something from your local VA Medical Center? Just yell "Congressional" and they will give you anything you want.

The whole system needs to be more competitive with real world medicine. Give every veteran a health card that they can use anywhere and lets see how long most of teh VA Medical Centers survive. One thing for sure, they will have to improve or they will be closed from lack of patients.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) from RXPILLHOME .COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
