Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • Have Been treating at the Tampa VA as a disabled vet. I believe they mean well but do not have the time to treat the individual as an individual. They are very busy I give them that , I feel that High pt load and lack of experience,(teaching institution = young interns) pushes clinicians to treat the symptoms rather that the source of the problem. This is usually done via the prescription pad. The clinicians get uptight and or defensive if you question there treatment even when the questioning is based on sound study and reasoning and the patients own internal feel for how things are. My point is Don't be afraid and or lazy. read up and be active in your trreatment, dont be bullyed or baffled by BS. Do the right thing for your self If you dont care they might not have the time to care either. This is opinion based on experience as pt. emperical observation, analysis of Fathers care, (deceased) and as a former employee at the VAMC Tampa. I may be wrong, about somethings but I know some of it is dead on. God bless and help the VA become all that it can be.
