LTE: Impressed with Veterans Administration, US Postal Service speed

Letter to the Editor – Jan 21, 2017
DEAR EDITOR:
I am a disabled veteran and depend on the Veterans Administration to provide my pharmacy when needed.

I see local cardiologists at the Lima St. Rita’s Medical Center and they provide me with prescriptions for the medications that I need to treat my conditions.

Last Friday, I Faxed a prescription from a local office supplier that has a FAX service at 2 p.m. to the VA for medication prescribed by my cardiologist and am able to track the prescription by “My Healthy Vet Program.”

I checked on Saturday morning somewhere around noon and found that my prescription for medication was sent by the VA and was in Columbus, Ohio at 10:48 pm Friday night and that it had been delivered to my front doorstep at 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

We often fault the VA for being inactive in doing their job and, often times lay a lot of blame on the United States Postal Department for not delivering on a timely basis, but this sure wasn’t the case for me.

I want to compliment both agencies for their efficient and prompt work.

Thanks for a job well done and keep up the good work.
