UPDATE: Please also check out my new book, The Definitive Dossier of PTSD in Whistleblowers, in which Chapter 4 is dedicated entirely to the exploits of Dr. Anna Chacko.
In the Aunt Minnie piece, Dr. Chacko suggests that she may try and get her old job back.
Ironically, Chacko claims that the Pittsburgh VA has put Chacko's former job as chief of radiology out to bid for the second time after failing to find a candidate in its first search. A representative with the Pittsburgh VA declined to comment on personnel matters at the facility, citing privacy concerns.
With the political winds appearing to shift in her favor, Chacko says she's considering whether to apply for the Pittsburgh VA job again.
"I'm going to apply," Chacko said. "I know the corruption in the VA better than anyone else. I want to make the VA safe for veterans."
In March of this year, Dr. Chacko was terminated as head of radiology at the Pittsburgh VA. The position has not yet been filled. Dr. Chacko is claiming that she plans on applying again for this position. Here's how a congressional source with knowledge of the situation characterized her chances.
I’m confident that it’s beyond the realm of possibility for someone who’s been terminated from the VA for cause to get another job there – especially the job from which they were removed!
On that note, here's how one veteran radiologist described the medical profession.
there are high percentages of the entitled, sociopaths, arrogants, and logic-challenged in the medical field. Take your pick!
That may explain in some small way the whole Dr. Anna Chacko affair.
