Laura T. Schmidt, NP-C
Certified Nurse Practitioner for Dr. Paul Spezia
Laura is a certified nurse practitioner, who, in collaboration with Dr. Paul Spezia, can identify, diagnose and initiate a treatment plan for patients with compromised bone health.
Laura seeks to improve access and quality of care to those in our community who are at risk for compromised bone health and those who suffer from a fragility fracture. The goal of our Bone Fragility Clinic is to improve our patients’ quality of life by increasing awareness of bone health, identifying those at risk for compromised bone health, and initiating treatment plans to improve bone density and reduce the likelihood of bone fragility fractures.
Committed to ongoing education, Laura is a member of the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) and has attended its Interdisciplinary Symposium on Osteoporosis (ISO). She earned her certificate of completion for the Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) program, a coordinated model of care that aims to deliver appropriate fracture risk assessments and treatment of osteoporosis to all patients with fragility fractures.
