TO THE WORLD’S HIGHEST TRIBUNAL – THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION

I was deprived of medical treatment at

U. S. DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS MEDICAL CENTER
4815 N Assembly St
Spokane  WA  99205-6185

I started taking 3 x 500MG Depakote DR (Delayed Release) in June of 1989.  Sometime in 2006, the U. S. Department of VETERANS Affairs switched to 7 x 250MG Depakote ER (Extended Release).

After 1 year of extreme pain in the testicles, by my experimenting and further testing by a urologist at the VA to eliminate all other possibilities, we determined that it was this new medicine.  The VA has told me that they do not have access to Depakote DR (Delayed Release).  I saw a private doctor.  He prescribed 3 x 500MG Depakote DR (Delayed Release).  5 days later, the pain in my testicles went away and has stayed away.

The difference between Depakote DR (Delayed Release) and Depakote ER (Extended Release) is the filler.  The filler used in Depakote ER (Extended Release) costs one-sixth as much as the filler used in Depakote DR (Delayed Release).

I was in extreme pain from both the new medicine that the VA has adopted and the need for a colonoscopy which the VA refused to give me.

My primary care provider at the VA referred me for a colonoscopy.  When I did not hear from the gastroenterology department, I visited them.  They said it had been referred back to my primary care provider.

Over five months and I was not even notified.

I was in extreme pain because of the need for a colonoscopy and re-visited him.  He again referred me for a colonoscopy.  This time, gastroenterology department’s excuse was that they wanted records of previous colonoscopies from non-VA physicians.

I was forced to see a private physician in order to get a prescription for medicine that the VA has discontinued and be referred to a specialist for a colonoscopy.  I was in extreme pain and could not wait any longer.

The fact is that the VA does not want to do any work.  A few years ago, when my pacemaker batteries were dead, they refused to replace either my pacemaker or the dead batteries.

The VA lacks quality care and attitude.  If veterans received free Medicare and medicine, they would get better treatment and it would cost the government less.  Why would I pay $364.26 per month for Depakote DR (Delayed Release) medicine if the Depakote ER (Extended Release) medicine at $8.00 per month were the better?

The VA would not remove my cataracts. So, I had it done by a private eye physician and surgeon.  Now, the only reason that I have do go to the VA is to get an eye examination in order to get a prescription for Travatan eye drops for glaucoma.  They will not do an eye examination without a prior physical examination by a primary care provider at the VA.  Private eye physicians do not require this.

WELFARE RECIPIENTS AND PRISON INMATES
RECEIVE BETTER MEDICAL TREATMENT AND MEDICINE THAN VETERANS.

VISITING A U. S. DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS MEDICAL CENTER
IS A VETERANS LAST CHANCE TO GIVE HIS LIFE FOR HIS COUNTRY.
