VA Hospital Albuquerque, NM / Phone service for VA Hospital
This Veteran's Hospital is a big joke. They only have ONE phone extension to contact your doctor and only ONE extension for the pharmacy. Everybody who works at this hospital seems to be under the impression that they have ultimate power over the veterans, which is obvious by the way the veterans are treated by the VA staff. If you want to talk to your doctor, you will be put on hold for (sometimes) up to 45 minutes or more - the same is true if you're trying to reach the pharmacy. The people that answer these phones definitely have attitude, which they are not afraid to dish out, but when you try to get the name of whomever is harassing you they will only give their first name, and they refuse to give their last name. THIS VA HOSPITAL IS A TOTAL JOKE, AND THE JOKE IS ON THE VETERANS. Somebody please contact me about this ASAP. I need a procedure performed on my back, but when I tried to schedule this procedure with pain management clinic I was told I would have to wait several months, even tho the temporary procedure was a big success. It's as if everybody at this hospital doesn't know what they're doing, and if you complain about anything they hang up on you mid-sentence. THIS VA HOSPITAL IS A TOTAL, COMPLETE JOKE AND AN EMBARRASSMENT TO ALL THOSE VETERANS (LIKE ME) WHO SERVED OUR COUNTRY AND NOW HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THESE IDIOTS THAT WORK AT THE VA HOSPITAL. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!!!
