At the Lexington VA Medical Center, we have established a number of procedures to assist you in getting an appointment without a long delay.
- Our goal is to provide timely care to our patients. Primary Care providers are generally able to see their established patients within 2 days.
- We strive to see all new patients within 30 days. If you are a new patient, who has not come to the VA before, please should contact our Eligibility Office at 859.281.4948 to enroll in VA healthcare.
