An employee at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Phoenix hospital just revealed physicians are blocking off open time slots so they can retain easy schedules, effectively increasing wait times for veterans, some of whom have waited over 400 days for an appointment.
Kuauhtemoc Rodriguez, a former Army infantry officer, has repeatedly
brought the issue of physician scheduling to leadership at the hospital,
only to be ignored. Now, he’s letting Congress and the media know
exactly what’s happening at the facility.
