Is your doctor a drunk or abuse drugs?
You can find out lots by going to your state medical board and checking your doctors records. That means VA employed doctors and nurses and some techies.
In Tucson they have a doc that fits this description. No Lie! A drunk that likes to drink vodka on duty and chew altoids!
So, before you see a new doctor check his record at the state board. Then, ask if he/she has ever been investigated or sued? See if the jerk will lie! Mind did. Of course I don't see him anymore.
Keep in mind. The doctors and nurses get their licenses from the state and not the VA. Read the rules.
Oh, don't tell the PA that the doc is drunk. Call the police or DEA and Medical board first. Let them deal with it. If you report it to the VA they will destroy you. It happened to me.
