HURRY UP AND WAIT !!!!!!

Sounds about right too. Remember, you are one of many vets in the system at your local VA clinic, you got to wait your turn. Thats why I use both my civilian doctor and the VA for my treatments. Some of them are strictly VA but I do use my civilian dic for some things and jusst take copies of those records to the VA my next trip so my VA doc knows whats going on and vice-versa.

Im sorry, you misunderstood. I thought it would take about a year to get an apointment,I wasnt complaining, i just thought it would be alot of red tape. Im fine with that, as far as waiting my turn, its been 26 years.

Intro and smaller appointments usually happen within a few days to a week or so. Processes like filing for disability are what take years to go through.

It will all work for you, just play their game and you'll be seen.
