I just wanted to say that my husband goes to a VA clinic in a small town in our area (Bainbridge, NY) and the staff there is just great. He has been getting excellent care there and the best part is that he likes going there. And he is the type who uses herbal remedies (we both do), but there are times when you have to go to a regular dr. We have been getting counseling there also and I can't say enough good things about the counselor we have. My father goes to the VA clinic in Binghamton, NY and he loves it too. He went to a regular dr. for years and wasn't doing so well until he started going here.
