The medical clinic here at McGuire AFB is disappointing. It is almost impossible to get an appointment on base and when you do you wait for what feels like forever and the providers are not always nice/friendly and don't seem to take anyone seriously in their medical concerns. I've only had one nice doc and that was my first time seeing a doc here 4yrs ago. Alot of people here go off base for care because it has gotten pretty bad here. The pharmacy is frequently out of prescriptions here so you end up going off base and paying alot for them. Every other base we've been to we had good medical care unfortunately that isn't the case here at McGuire AFB NJ.

My children and I have never seen an on-base doc at the clinic. We had the option to switch from Tri-Care to US Family Health Plan and I jumped on it! I have never had to wait days or weeks for an appointment, I can pick my own doctor and can change doctors at anytime. I have not heard anything good about the on-base clinic so I am very happy with my choice. Our FNP will be one of the few things I miss when/if we ever PCS. Also, cost wise the only difference is that you cannot use the pharmacy on base. The co-pays for Rx are small and with USFHP you can use the mail order pharmacy and get 3 months worth of meds at one time for one co-pay.
