Excellent book for someone in the health care field. My wife is a nurse who has to give patients instructions in Spanish everyday. This book comes in very handy for her. She loves it.

Excellent. For the past 15 years I have bought 2-3 copies per year to give to students on our medical missions to Ecuador or the Dominican Republic. And they have used it, and given me good reviews! This has a very good balance of what's needed on such trips. It's a large-format paperback though, and I wish the newer editions had remained the smaller size of the older ones for traveling purposes.

This book is a very good learning tool, to use in class or study it alone. I benefited from this book. I would recommend it to anyone who is pursuing Spanish for health care professionals.

It seems I've been studying Spanish most of my life--and I'm a senior citizen. This book is particularly helpful for medical "situations" such as "Where does it hurt?" "What is the intensity of the pain?" and the like.

Especially if you're a doctor, nurse, or front desk receptionist. It really goes into detail on how to handle situations during an emergency. It's a very useful book.

I used this book as a primer for my medical missions trip to Colombia. It was excellent for me, a complete non-Spanish speaker. I was able to get my points across and listen to medical concerns that patients had. I highly recommend this for beginners with very little background in Spanish.

The book also has very handy hints and idioms for those who know Spanish, but not medical Spanish.
