So I am not employed here and am not a patient that was forced to rate this hospital a 5. I rated this hospital a 5 because everyone here, well with the exception of one guy, have been amazingly friendly and courteous to my parents, particularly my father who is a Veteran. Anyone who gives their time to go out of their way to help people in need should always be held in extremely high regard. For those of you who feel that the facility or the services provided aren't good enough, don't complain about it, challenge your government to take care of the ones who have died and been injured protecting it!

Not a bad place with a pretty good staff considering it's right smack in the middle of what looks like a demilitarized zone. Also be prepared for people to come up to you in the hallway or parking lot asking if you can spare a dollar or two. Annoying.

ALL staff members I met.....and I mean ALL, even the custodians were friendly, professional, courteous, helpful, caring and sincere. I really had reservations about going to a VA hospital because of all the horror stories I have heard. Untrue about this facility! Everyone was great! I got in and out of each appointment and department with hardly any wait, yet when I saw each Doctor I did not feel rushed or just another patient. They CARE!! At least the ones I saw did. I have NO problem going back to do my next series of tests. I am totally amazed at the volume of people they handle there, but I felt like I mattered. Even the parking lot attendants were great! Special shout outs to the Admin/receptionists on the 4th floor room 295, Michele and Tarif. Dr. Pollen, Dr. Philip's? (Audio). Great staff! 10 stars would be more appropriate!!!!

The emergency staff is one of the best I have ever encountered. Their dedication and kindness has won me over every time. I thank them all for a very difficult job that they do day in and day out. They serve our Veterans with the highest respect and honor.

Long wait times for appointments and parking is a nightmare, but the nurses and providers are top notch.
