Treated well at Veterans Administration Kernersville Healthcare Center

I was back at the Veterans Administration Kernersville Healthcare Center last week.

I don’t have acute issues. I’m pretty routine. A couple of hearing aids, a few shots, some admonitions to lose weight.

But the VA is a great benefit to me.

I understand there is a national debate about restructuring the VA. I am not following it closely. I sense that it is about ideology and political influence.

I don’t trust ideology or political influence – no matter which way they go.

I know one small, irrefutable fact: I have consistently had great service at the Kernersville center. I hope they don’t change that. It is not broke.

Veterans Administration in NC — doing good healthcare — thank you

VA Kernersville Healthcare Center

For veterans within the service area of the Veterans Administration Kernersville Healthcare Center: that is one superb facility over there and the healthcare it dispenses is superb.

They have focused on providing high-quality service, using technology well, and employing good, well-motivated people to do the work. And they have figured that thing out. They deliver.

They know how to serve large numbers of people efficiently, expeditiously and well.

In the past MidLaw became accustomed to hearing grim stories about the VA. No more. That place and those people are great!

So, this is your Veterans Day message. MidLaw appreciates what the VA has done for veterans in central NC.

Special Veterans Day Alert: Good news for NC veterans

VA Kernersville Health Care Center

MidLaw wishes to join the great chorus of the day with a message for veterans.

If you are a veteran who lives in central North Carolina, don’t believe what you may have heard. The outpatient medical services available to you at the Veterans Administration are quite amazing.

The Health Care Center in Kernersville is a marvel.

It’s new. It’s nicer – a more inviting place to be – than any medical facility MidLaw can name.

There’s a computer there that’s just waiting to hear from you – and it will ensure that when you come to the Center, there will be virtually no waiting. Computer though it is, it’s surrounded by all these people who seem very highly motivated to ensure that you are attended to.

Best of all: free hearing aids! State-of-the-art, top-of-the-line hearing aids and audiologists with accompanying equipment who are expert, responsive and experienced.

As far as I know, any hearing impairment is eligible for treatment. But, in particular, if you have a bit of a gap in the range that your left ear can hear, that’s consistent with exposure to firearms in a military setting. And, the VA’s the place for you to be.

And what devices they supply! My cell phone calls now come directly into my head. Nobody hears it ring but me. Music, podcasts – they all come straight into your head (if you want’em to).

Most astonishing! Since acquiring these devices, I’ve learned that very often, when people’s lips are moving that means they are seeking to communicate with you. And, my television has begun to function much better. Somehow though, there has been little improvement in my ability to hear certain communications from Sally. Nothing’s perfect.

MidLaw, at least, thanks the Veterans Administration for its service.

Sound off!

I was at the Veterans Administration Health Center this morning, getting lined up for hearing aids. I went down to the Audiology section to check in, where I was second in line.

The receptionist asked the guy in front of me what his name was. He said, “I’m sorry, what did you say?”

I was in the right place.

The VA Health Center in Kernersville, N.C., is one of my new favorite places. The facility is fantastic. The place is well organized. There is virtually no waiting. The service and care are spot on. And, after virtually every encounter, they say, “Thank you for your service.” This morning, a lady told me that I look nice today.

I’m going back.
