Letter: Another side to the Roseburg VA experiences

Reasons for VA morale issues

Do you think that possibly the low morale at the Roseburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center is the result of the toxic front page article about the VA, or the toxic guest opinion of the VA, or the negative letters on the VA? I can’t imagine any doctor contemplating a move to the Roseburg VA would follow through after reading any of the recent articles in The News-Review.

I have been in the VA system for a couple of years and have had nothing but positive experiences in my dealings with them. Staff have been professional, pleasant and helpful. The wait times for doctor’s appointments and in the emergency room have been shorter that I experienced in private practice. A recent visit to the VA emergency room took me a half an hour to receive care.

Is the VA perfect? No, but no one ever said that a government could run a health care system more efficiently than the private sector. Welcome to ObamaCare!
