Getting VA Approval For Mayo Is A Nightmare

Hello @eddiereen,

I would like to join Debra, @karukgirl, in welcoming you to Mayo Connect. I'm wondering if your husband's heart problems are related to his military service? We do have members who were veterans of the Vietnam war who are ill because of exposure to Agent Orange. If this is his situation as well, you might find the members in the Connect Parkinson's group to be helpful. Here is the link to that discussion, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/i-would-like-to-introduce-myself-my-name-is-chris-and-i/?pg=12#comment-83688.

Is this a factor in your husband's health problem? I suppose you have talked with the VA to see what, if anything, can be done to make this referral possible?

I don't think so and its unlikely we'd know. Thank you for the added info.
