The wait time for new patients seeking a primary care doctor at the VA Center in Clarksburg, West Virginia, is 54 days — nearly four times what the Department of Veterans Affairs had set as a goal.
Other VA facilities in West Virginia also are exceeding that goal. Martinsburg's wait time is 47 days; Beckley's is 39 days; Huntington's is just under 29 days.
The numbers were released Monday by the Department of Veterans Affairs as part of a national audit.
