  • In the past few months the news has been full of the problems at VA facilities like the one in Phoenix and others nationwide.
    Veterans waiting for many months to get an appointment for serious medical problems, some resulting in deaths.
    I have been in the VA system for over 30 years.   First, I was treated at the Harry S Truman Center in Columbia.   I can say that I never had a problem getting an appointment at that facility.
    For the past 15 years or more I have gone to the VA clinic here at the lake.   It was previously in Camdenton and recently moved to the southern outskirts of Osage Beach.
    The people at the clinic are first class, from Dr. Gina Carter to head nurse Brenda, they are the greatest.
    I have never had a problem getting an appointment there and I have never had to wait past my appointment time.   If the appointment is at 9 a.m., you go in at 9 a.m.
    I can't say enough about Dr. Carter, she takes the time to go over your medical problem and is genuinely interested in taking care of you.
    This clinic should be recognized as being top notch and not be grouped with the other facilities we hear about in the news.
