072113 Robertson Audiology reaches out to serve veterans (267)

LACONIA — The Veterans' Affairs Disability Examinations Management contract (VA DEM) has been awarded to Logistics Health, Inc. in Wisconsin each year since 2001. Through its work, LHI helps to ensure service members are medical ready for deployment in addition to serving the health needs of the country's military members before, during and after deployment through its network of more than 25,000 quality health care providers.
As an audiologist, Dr. Laura Robertson didn't hesitate for a second when she learned of a need for doctors to join LHI's VA DEM team, stating "this is an opportunity for audiology specialists to do our part to serve the health needs of members of the US Armed Forces".
Robertson's practice, located on South Main Street in Laconia, serves a large senior population, many of whom are veterans and their spouses, and is eager to help them receive their VA Benefits in a timely manner. "These are our country's heroes, this is the least we owe them" continues Robertson, whose own father is a retired US Air Force Officer and Vietnam Veteran who works part time in her Laconia office.
"It's important to me to live up to my patient's expectations of offering the most up-to-date solutions available for their specific needs" explains Robertson who recently earned her ninth ACE Award from the America Speech, Language and Hearing Association.
Robertson has been providing hearing care to residents of the Lakes Region since 1992 and is the only audiologist in the Lakes Region to hold board certification from the American Board of Audiology.
