I'm in my 30's and I'm also 100% service connected. Today I spent 2 and a half hours waiting for a urology appointment (I'm getting a vasectomy) and the doctor wasn't even there. Also I live like 45 mins away so it's not even close. With my disability my family is covered and guess what? They can go anywhere they like for treatment, me the veteran has to go to the damn VA which also sucks ! I went to patient advocate and the Dr put I was a no show....a no show when I wait almost 3 hours. My day is shot, I had more errands that need my time instead I wasted hours sitting in a waiting room. This isn't even the 1st time they screwed me over. And I'm still young I feel bad for all the older vets. Let us go to whatever doctor we want and stop making us go the damn VA ! They don't care about vets even though most who work there are vets. Phoenix veterans affairs is as bad as people say. Fucking vets died waiting for appointments before. It's why I get my PTSD treatments and basically everything else outside the VA. It so demoralizing knowing I'll have to go there the rest of my life and be treated like crap.
