VA Accused of Distorting Wait Times Link to "The Waiting Game" If I had not called, on many occasions, to follow up on supposed appointments I too would have been put into a loop of waiting for service by the local VA system! On occasion I have been told that "I" had requested a lengthy delay for my next appointment! WTF? Lies lies and more damn lies! And some appointments canceled by the VA have never been rescheduled!
