About the Author

Glenn T. Rogers, MD, currently is a staff physician at the Baechtel Creek Medical Center in rural northern California. He attended UC Berkeley, majored in mathematics. He was accepted to the PhD program there, but decided to start a business importing embroidered clothes from Mexico. He perfected his Spanish by spending 3-4 months of the year in Mexico, tending to his import business. After doing some soul searching he decided he wanted to something more important, and applied to medical school. Dr. Rogers was accepted and attended the University of Cincinnati, and did a residency in Internal Medicine at L.A. County+USC. Many of the many patients were Spanish-speaking only, and again he was able to work on his medical Spanish. The first edition of his best selling dictionary was authored and published during his residency. DR. Rogers later worked in the ER for 3 years at LAC+USC, then private practice in Bakersfield for 2 years.

I am a General Surgeon and lead a team of volunteers every year to work in Guatemala. I have bought copies of this book for all members of our team. It has concise, appropiate and complete entries for the clinical situations we encounter on a regular basis. No other dictionary that we have tried over the years comes close to the utility of this one. Other larger and more expensive dictionaries such as Mosby's (approximately $275 on Amazon) are not as comprehensive when it comes to the phrases and vocabulary necessary to communicate in a clinical setting. This little book is a gem and I recommend it highly.

I highly recommend the English-Spanish Medical Dictionary by Glenn Rogers to any medical practitioner struggling to communicate with their ever increasing Spanish speaking clients. This dictionary has every conceivable medical word that you might use during an office visit. I also like the history and physical phrases in the back. I have used some of these when I have had trouble asking sensitive questions. \

Very well written and useful. The author is a bilingual medical doctor. As a practicing physician, he is well aware of commonly used medical terms and phrases. This book is very practical and easy to use. I recommend it highly.

Format: Paperback
I have been teaching Medical Spanish and Cultural Competency CME courses for over 20 years and cannot praise Glenn T Rogers, MD's English -Spanish/Spanish-English Medical Dictionary enough.
It is an excellent resource and the best Medical Spanish dictionary I have found throughout my entire teaching career, which is why I highly recommend it to anyone in the Health Care profession as well as to all Medical Spanish Instructors.
This third edition is extremely comprehensive and covers nearly every term my students have looked up in class, as well as those that I've always wanted to know. It is also most impressive in that Dr. Rogers includes many diverse and varied translations based on region and country, which affords one the opportunity to know which word or phrase to use depending on where ones' patient is from.
This dictionary entailed a great deal of research and is extremely accurate, not to mention thoroughly outstanding!
*An extra added bonus is the Code Status Discussion translation on the last page of the book, which many of my class participants point out is exceedingly beneficial.
Once again, I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I used to get it from the local library whenever I needed to do a medical interpretation. I finally decided to order it from Amazon so I don't have to head to the library whenever I get an interpretation assignment. This is a pocket-size book, but it has a wealth of terms that you can actually use if you're an English-Spanish interpreter, translator, a health professional or student, practicing or studying in the U.S., whose first language is Spanish, or an English-speaking health professional who sees Spanish-speaking patients. It is very handy whenever I come across a term that doesn't come to mind immediately or that I need to double-check.

This Medical dictionary is the best dictionary that I have found and it provides a complete list of medical terms, and words that are most commonly used in medical settings. This is definitely good a tool to have when one is working as a Spanish Medical Interpreter or medical staff. The book is handy and easy to use. The author uses medical terms that are widely accepted in Latin America and are OK to use in the US. It is moderate in price and easy to carry. Definitely one that I would recommend.

This book was exactly what I needed for that Spanish medical terminology I don't know. This is definitely helpful for me as a bilingual nurse who's never taken a medical class in Spanish but am left teaching Spanish-only patients.

This is an excellent reference while learning medical spanish and is a perfect size to be able to put in a big lab jacket pocket. Print is not so small that a magnifier is necessary as it is in some of the smaller dictionaries.
