This Place is literally breaking my heart! My grandpa was in vietnam got agent orange and delt with everything else. He has recently gotten cancer. The doctors here do not care what so ever. They made him wait longer to start chemo than he was supposed to. And after his last round of chemo he was supposed to get a shot to boost his white blood cell count! They signed off on the wrong person!! My grandpa now can not get the shot since its past the 72 hours!! Im beyond Hurt he does not deserve this at all!! Now last night my grandmother and I had to argue with a doctor so he could get his cancer meds like seriously!! This place is nothing but a joke Veterans deserve so much more than this! UPDATE: October 15,2017 My grandfather passed away due to not getting the shot after chemo he developed pneumonia and could not breath. The VA has been nothing but a joke. They ALSO did his death certificate wrong. I hope this place gets help and starts treating Veterans with the respect they deserve.
OLD FACILITY MAP ON THEIR WEBSITE IS OUTDATED. Good employees and doctors are there, but they also have many problems as with the VAs around the country that you hear about. The bad employees seem to dictate the atmosphere while the good ones have to tiptoe around the whiners and instigators. Problems are common with the veterans also I.E. a Veteran falls down and hits his head 15 feet from the ER door, they call an ambulance and he has to wait 20 minutes for the ambulance to arrive before going into the hospital. Another Veteran was trying to get into the ER at the ER and Ambulance entrance, she tried the phone, the buzzer and the "HOTLINE TO ER" phone, but got no answer, had to limp back to her car and drive to the other side of the hospital to try and gain access to another entrance, an employee told her that she could not park there, but she told him "park it for me" and went inside. Good for her.
The VA here in Des Moines has to be the best in the country. Every person I have spoken with here has gone out of their way to help and find the right answers. Unlike the west coast and east coast and so many other places where our vets wait months just to see a doctor. Bad comments here for the Des Moines VA? My guess is that the bad commenters have never been outside of this area. Vets here in Iowa are lucky to have such a caring place to go to. And who cares how old the building is? My old jeep and old truck will out run any new car/truck sold today! WAY TO GO VA OF CENTRAL IOWA!!!!!!!!
After all the grief that people give the va hospitals I feel lucky to use the Des Moines va over all they have always treated me right and worked with me to get better. I do admit it can take some time to get an initial appointment in some offices but over all i feel like they do their best to help you. I do hate calling to as the automated call system is lengthy and a pain. Especially if your not feeling well.
This is literally the best VA I have ever been to and possibly the best hospital I have ever been to in my entire life!! Everybody was so caring and dedicated to their profession. They were so helpful and understanding. Very efficient! Got me in and out of the emergency room in an hour! This is an example of how every VA in the country should model themselves after.
Not enough physicians. Physicians unwilling to provide care veteran has had in the past. Too long a wait to see physicians. Protocols on cataract removal, stimulant drugs are out of touch with reality and other quality medical care. Good patient advocates leave out of frustration
Arab doctors not caring to truly help Iraq / Afgan Veterans...Im ashamed of my service to a country that repays me like this.... I was the same leaving there as I was when I arrived, thanks for nothing Uncle Sam. 09/19/2016
There is no better medical coverage anywhere unless it would be another VA. Caring, dedicated doctors & staff one and all. Very pleased with all VA services!
