Summary
Updated with more words, phrases, and exercises than ever, the new third edition also features two brand-new sections: one is focused on helping health care receptionists, and the other concentrates on health insurance forms. This book will help doctors, nurses, and medical assistants communicate in Spanish with Latino patients and their families who have little or no command of English. Concentrating on words and phrases pertaining to medical circumstances, Spanish for Health Care Professionals presents true-to-life dialogues that dramatize situations as they typlically occur in doctors' offices and the hospital environment.
