Customer Reviews

It is a well organized book and easy to use.
S. Robbins
I asked one patient that speaks some English, and he told me this book was more formal, which makes sense with my overall impression of the book.
SirenPrincess
I have also noted the hospital Spanish interpreters using this book in their daily routine contact with Spanish speaking patients.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good bilingual English<->Spanish medical dictionary that has 20,000+ terms with many appendices (e.g., common diagnostic/disease abbreviations, , consult/interview, medical documents like consent forms) that make it an excellent choice for a medical/healthcare professional--more so if English is L1--and would be especially helpful to an interpreter or translator. Too heavy for pocket. This newest 4th Edition has many editing errors and its Table of Contents don't match up making it difficult to locate some sections.

Spanish-English English-Spanish Medical Dictionary

A comprehensive resource for healthcare providers and healthcare students allowing us to break the language barrier we face often when trying to converse with Spanish-speaking patients. This is an indispensable resource as the book contains almost all health related terms you will come in contact with during the conversation between you the healthcare provider and the Spanish speaking client.

I highly recommend this book as a necessity for healthcare students and providers. This new edition provides faster and easier access to comprehensive medical terms, technological related medical terms, medical abbreviations; it also provides definitions, translations, tips on pronunciation, signs and symptoms of commonly occurring disorders seen in practice, and practical phrases used in the daily communication with your clients.

You also will receive access to the Point website featuring audio pronunciation glossary with Spanish audio, image bank, and appendices formatted as PDFs.
I think this dictionary is excellent! It is the most comprehensive medical Spanish dictionary I have found. It is an Excellent Tool for Translations. I have also noted the hospital Spanish interpreters using this book in their daily routine contact with Spanish speaking patients.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This Spanish/English Medical dictionary is the most comprehensive and thorough one I have owned. Well worth the cost if only for reference. No matter what area of the health care field you specialize in the question or answer can be pretty much found in the book.

It is broken up into different sections.
-A useful dictionary of medical terms for Spanish speakers
-A useful dictionary of medical terms for English speakers
- Grammar sections called Conversion Tables which includes - a quick section of common root words, verbs, prefixes and suffixes relating to diagnosis and symptoms etc..- this section is very dry and most people will bypass it.
-Very brief section on accenting/pronunciation - would be better to type in the word in the computer and search on the net how to pronounce a word than use this book
- A Communicating with Patients section devoted to medical questions/phrases for all types of exams- very helpful and comprehensive.
-Short section of Spanish and English- consent and authorization forms (such as for surgery, tests) I think any office with a large Spanish speaking base will use these forms.
-Finally a color photo section of the human anatomy which delineates tissue, organs etc. in Spanish and English- very straightforward and useful.

Thoughts
I would really just use this book for quick reference. Without having much knowledge of Spanish all the Conversion Tables/Grammar sections are too much work. I think the main sections of the book that are helpful are the: dictionary, common phrases/questions, and labeled color anatomy areas.

The one big gap is that this book really doesn't demonstrate how you pronounce the words correctly.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm a pharmacist in an area where about half my patients don't speak English. I'm always looking for more resources to help them. This book is useful as a more extensive resource. It has more detailed and extensive medical terms than I've found in any other book. Just about any medical terminology you can think of is in here. However, I've found that a lot of the things in this book are more complex terms like I'd use when speaking with another health care provider instead of what I'd use to explain things to patients (even the English translations). In that same area of problem, a lot of the translations sound much more formal than the way my patients speak. I've been discussing insurance and billing with my customers for over ten years, and these are not the words that they use. I asked one patient that speaks some English, and he told me this book was more formal, which makes sense with my overall impression of the book. In general, this is a great reference if you need to look up something more detailed or 'bigger' medical words and terminology, but I think you'd be better off with a pocket translator for everyday needs. Before I close this review, I will mention a few things I did really like about this book. It has glossy color pictures of human anatomy with translations of all of the body parts (not just what you'd find in Spanish 101 book, but detailed medical terms). There are example legal documents in English and Spanish such as informed consent papers and living wills. There are separate sections that have everything all together for common things like signs of a heart attack or what you might ask in an ambulance. Still, even in those sections, some of the things the authors chose to tell you how to say seem a bit odd.
