Clovis VA doing best they can
In response to Mr. Reid’s letter about the Clovis VA clinic, I am offering another side of the story. I owe my life to the VA system, starting with the Clovis clinic.
The Clovis VA clinic is not a hospital. It is a part of the Amarillo VA system, and it does what it is supposed to do. If you have an emergency, we are told to call 911. If you do not have an appointment, you will wait for service. They are understaffed and overworked. Your appointments in Amarillo most likely came from referral from the Clovis clinic. That is how the system works.
As I said, I owe my life to the VA doctors, from Clovis, to Amarillo, and to Albuquerque. We all sometimes get short when we feel bad, but if you work with the system, it will work with you.
