    I worked at US Department of Veterans Affairs as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent patients who really appreciate the medical doctors care. The delivery of care is quite fulfilling and you really make a difference in the lives of our servicemen and servicewomen.

    Cons

    The administration and framework for delivery of medical care is burdened by delays, process, and protocols. There were new rules and documentation in the EHR every week. At times, caring for patients was bottlenecked by all the administrative requirements. This made the job very frustrating and the main reason I left. In private practice, I could see many more patients each hour than at the VA. Perhaps this is the reason for such long wait times to see a physician in the VA system, regardless of specialty.

    Advice to Management

    Improve patient wait times, re-evaluate EHR requirements, improve surgical room turnover times. Compare the number of patients seen within a private practice group model and address your deficiencies.

    Interview
