    I've been going to the Roudebush VA hospital (Indianapolis) for care for the last 10 years.  

    Yes, it sometimes takes a month or two to schedule a visit, but emergency room services are always available at the VA.

    I had a heart attack 2 years ago.  The care was immediate, excellent and followup visits were frequent and thorough.  Services were provided both by VA staff and IU doctors.

    I've been exposed to Agent Orange and have a service-connected disability.  The care under my PA is outstanding in my opinion.

    The only process that seems to take a lot of time is getting through the disability compensation process.  That can take years for some folks.

    I know all VA clinics and hospitals are not up to this standard, but I think the Roudebush hospital is doing a great job.
