CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The White House Deputy of Staff Rob Nabors arrived at the Cincinnati Veteran's Affairs Medical Center shortly after one o'clock Thursday afternoon.
The waiting times for new patient appointments in Cincinnati are some of the longest in the country.
"I said that is too late. He's sick. I can't wait that long. What am I going to do?" said Conner.
She isn't alone.
The average wait time for a new patient appointment at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center is 29 days; much longer than the target 14 day wait time. It is a problem Conner says will not be fixed with a visit from the White House.
"I could care less about this guy. Doesn't matter. What I do care about is this getting on the news. This needs to be investigated. There is stuff that goes on here that is not okay," said Conner.
Even worse, Conner says after arguing with officials for weeks she finally got that appointment for her 87-year-old father. VA doctors gave him a clean bill of health April 9th but just one month later diagnosed him with bladder cancer.
It's just one more example she says of shameful care for our nation's veterans.
Nabors is expected to tour the Columbus VA Medical Center Friday.
