“Is this the line for crushing chest pain? Good thing wait times don’t matter.”

Robert McDonald, the Veterans Affairs Secretary, recently compared VA wait times to Disney wait times, saying that Disney doesn’t use wait times as a measure of success so why should the VA.  Good point, Mr. McDonald.  It’s good to know the VA is in capable hands.  But we asked around the hospital to see what you were thinking.  Here’s what we found:

Dr. Lawson, General Surgeon
42897391_m “I prefer the food at Epcot, the Dilaudid at the VA.”
Jason Redmond, Patient Who Can’t Afford Meds But Has a Sweet New iPhone 6s Plus
obgyn I tell my patients if they develop any life-threatening illness to report to their nearest Disney or VA, whichever is closer.”
Dr. Vasquez, OB/GYN
32215252_m “How tall do you have to be to ride the VA?”
Brent Shoemaker, Second-Year Med Student
“Both involve roller coasters, but I prefer child vomit to adult vomit.  Less to clean.”
Jerome Jones, Environmental Services
 35392485_m “If Mickey Mouse doesn’t measure wait times, why should Annabelle Rivers measure blood sugars?”
Annabelle Rivers, Sweet Little Old Lady with Poorly Controlled Diabetes Who Sometimes Talks in Third Person
