This facility is completely brand new. There are a lot of spaces to park your car in the parking garage. The people are friendly. If you are in the Orlando area, this is the facility where you go for every VA service. The appointments are quick and often times you get one within a couple of weeks. The doctors are good. They are there to take care of you.
You will get lost inside the medical center. There isn't anyone volunteers standing around to help you find your way around. Visiting this VA can be costly because of all the toll roads in the Orlando area.
