The grammar topics, in turn, are probably not sufficiently detailed for a beginner, but they would make good refreshers for those who vaguely remember studying, say, the imperfect tense, but don't remember what it's for and don't want an entire review lesson or just a list of forms. It helps if you have enough exposure to Spanish to recognize that the English "translations" of the phrases aren't always exact.
The cultural topics are extremely useful, more so than many newer books. They go far beyond the usual superficial stuff I've seen again and again, discussing such cross-cultural topics as ideas of honor and how this relates to privacy concerns. The vocabulary, too, includes useful tables such as "common children's terms" (the equivalents for "tummy" etc.). In addition to its use for personal review and study, I can see it being used and assigned as part of an advanced practical medical Spanish course offered as a followup to broader beginner and intermediate studies.
"Grammar notes" provide a few very basic grammar rules and are inadequate for the level of gramatical dificulty of many sentences.
The majority of the patient interview questions and recomended phrases are either irrelevant or simply inappropriate.
Buy this book if you want to learn the names of the body parts in Spanish, but do not expect much else of it.
