Fresno vets are 'very fortunate' to have hospital

After reading articles in Newsweek describing health care for American veterans, I decided to write expressing my observations of veteran care at the Fresno Veterans Hospital.

Over the years, I have received the highest quality of professional and personal health care from the Fresno facility. The system of monitoring my medications and providing me with refills is outstanding. I am reminded of scheduled appointments and am able to reschedule when I am unable to keep an appointment. I have never had to wait an unreasonable time to see staff members. Medications from the pharmacy are readily available and at a reasonable cost.

More importantly, without question, every member of the staff I have dealt with has been efficient and cheerful. They take a personal interest in my health needs. Fresno veterans are very fortunate to have this facility available to them.
