Improving Access to Specialty Care with VA Video Connect

Army and Navy Veteran Kenneth Turner recently lost his right leg to diabetes. As part of his recovery and rehabilitation at the West Texas VA, he used VA Video Connect to see a physiatrist at the Dallas VA Medical Center.

Turner would have had to make a four-hour drive to Dallas if not for VA Video Connect.

“This has changed my treatment experience, having a provider available for me in the comfort of my local VA,” said Turner. “The video connection made it easy to see my provider. I was able to walk and demonstrate how well I have been doing working with my physical therapists.”
