Vets in Tennessee Face 65-Day Waits

An analysis of government data by The Tennessean shows that veterans trying to receive a first visit to a doctor at the Nashville, TN or Murfreesboro, TN wait an average 65 days for treatment.  Only 29.6 percent of veterans received care within the 14-day target set by the VA.  

Veterans seeking benefits also faced massive delays, as 57.2 percent faced waiting periods longer than the standard waiting period for benefits of 125 days.  Both The Tennessean and Nashville, TN CBS affiliate WTVF reported that the VA offices in Tennessee did not return requests for comment.
