As Vet I had a long wait to see my primary care doctor, yes I got a responds for an appointment with in five days. The appointment was 20 days after. I was told if it’s ”an emergency call 911,or go to the nearest hospital emergency room”. Because I’m not a doctor and I don’t know what is an emergency I went to the hospital emergency room. That doctor told me I could wait to see my VA doctor. The( catch 22 because, a person not a recording,) from the VA told me to go to emergency room the VA paid for it. When I did see my primary care doctor it took another 10 days to get in to the St Cloud VA Clinic. Now that I’m established at the St Cloud Clinic when I call for additional care for my medical problem I get in within 5 days. It’s all in knowing how to use the VA or have God tell you 30days before that you need medical care from the VA.
