Several dozen veterans braved the cold to protest on the South Side Friday afternoon. They chanted, "Stop cuts to VA healthcare. Stop cuts to VA Healthcare," at 7731 S. Halsted St. in Chicago

The group wants the VA to reconsider changes, which they say will remove their preferred doctor from the Halsted Street VA facility.

According to a VA spokesperson, The doctor is being transferred to the Jesse Brown Medical Facility.

The VA says there will be a doctor staffed at the South Halsted location every weekday.
