Can i sue a doctor at veterans hospital?

To have a malpractice case, one has to identify a specific negligent mistake that causes a significant injury. "Terrible treatment" is not a specific negligent mistake. Neither is "pushing drugs." The VA care may indeed be substandard, but until/unless you can identify a particular error that caused a particular harm, a broad, general complaint is not a basis for a lawsuit. Sorry.
