On Feb. 22, the Orlando VA Medical Center opened a new Post-Deployment Clinic to cater solely to Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. At this clinic, we provide primary health care, psychological support and social work services. Our one-stop shop approach combines and integrates all these services. When coming to our clinic for the first time, Veterans can expect their appointment to last three hours. This will allow our healthcare specialists to complete a full evaluation and care plan that addresses the Veteran’s unique issues. This initial appointment will replace the need to come to several different appointments over a period of time, which will be much more accommodating to the schedule of the Veteran newly integrating into civilian life.
