It took me nine months to get into the liver clinic there and get a liver biopsy. Of course, that was in 2005 so no one really cared.

I won't blame the President for this one but my father-in-law had to move back to Colorado from Utah so he could have more access and faster care through the VA. My only contact with the VA in Salt Lake hasn't been the best but things did improve for my father-in-law in Colorado so maybe it's a hit and miss deal...

Imagine that, a government agency that isn't very efficient.

I imagine any business that has 4-5 new addition every DAY would have a back-log. I know mine would.

At least our VA has integrity and did not try to hide the backlog. Cheers for our SLC VA!
