Step Into Comfort with a Walk-In Tub!
My name is Ed Buckman and I'm 100% disabled due to cold weather injuries in NOV. 1950 to May 1951. About three years ago, because of my diabetes; I felt a need for one of these new walk in tubs. I went to my doctor at the VA and he wrote me a prescription. I than carried it to the Prosthetics Department at the Dallas VA. The person at the Dallas VA indicated the way he read the book, I did not qualify. I was a little upset because the book talked about allowing a person in a wheel chair an allowance of $4100.00 toward the purchase of fixing a shower for entrance of a wheelchair. I did not argue with him but I did write a letter to the Senator in charge of Veterans Administration as I felt the time the book was written there was no walk in tubs.
To shorten the story with in 6 weeks the Dallas VA got a letter from Washington D.C. that the benefit now included walk in baths. Since that time approximately 30 tubs have been delivered by BESTBUYWALKINTUBS.com all over the state of Texas. Recently the allowance has been raised to $6,800.00(up to) I have found this firm has the best price and go out of their way to keep the veterans happy. Two constituents in your District R#8 have need for these tubs and for some reason the Prosthetics Department misinterpreted the wording. I?m going to be 81 Dec. 1st so I am well aware how easy it is to fall in the shower or bathroom, as a matter of fact 65% of all falls happen in the bathroom. On a recent trip to the Capitol I really missed my walk in tub. I've had mine close to three years and I really like it.
Certainly our benefits book should read the same for all veterans no matter what part of the state. If a veteran is disabled 50% to 100% he is entitled up to that figure towards the purchase of a Tub. Mrs. Donna Aust 817-326-3003 is President of Best Buy WALK-IN BATH TUBS AND COULD ANSWER ANY QUESTION YOU HAVE. We are both GOP, I've been a personal friend of Congressman Sam Johnson for years.

Dear Ms. Aust:
I would like to thank you to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to you and your company for the excellent manner in which your company recently exhibited in the recent installation of the walk-in tub in my home in Garland, Texas.
Your employees were courteous, efficient and diligent in their work which they did without a lot of idle chatter. Their work was completed in record time. In fact, when their work was finished, the appearance of my home was greatly enhanced by the excellent workmanship they performed.
Thank you for a job well done.
Dear Best Buy Walk In Tubs,
Thank you so much for helping me work with the VA in receiving funds towards my walk in bath tub. I am really enjoying my tub it is wonderful. Now I don't have to worry about falling as I get dizzy standing in the shower the walk in bath tub has taken that worry away. The installers did a great job on the installation.
I will recommend you to all my friends and especially my Veteran friends.
Ken & Donna:
As a veteran I really appreciate the efforts that your firm has made to help us in the simple matter of taking care of ourselves in a safe comfortable environment. Like many veterans I suffer from cold weather injury, osteoporosis, COPD, diabetes, arthritis. Many others have balance problems due to loss of a limb. As I mentioned to you my Dad died of a heart attack over exerting himself pulling up from a tub bath.
All these thoughts ran through my mind when I first saw an advertisement on these walk in tubs. Naturally my first question was how much do they cost? About the cost of two months in assisted living quarters was my first thought. Then when we found out that the Veterans Administration has now included this benefit under the Home Improvement section and a veteran with a 50% disability can receive UP TO $4100.00 to have the benefits and safety of a walk in tub. This put you in this veteranís budget, and I just love the installed product. It adds to the value of my house, and someday my kids will enjoy this value in the old homestead!
Thanks again. I hope your business continues to grow, your price is right and the service was great!
Donna & Ken
My wife and I are enjoying our new Best Buy Walk In Tub. We have never worked with any better people than you two. What a pleasant experience. I have sent two other Veterans to you and they are also loving their bathing experience.
