Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Excellent resource
I am very pleased with this book. It assumes you have a basic knowledge of Spanish, but is still thorough. Provides useful phrases and words for outpatient care. Some spanish words only have pictures with them and no translation accompanying them...so you occasionally need to look words up online or in a dictionary. Overall, no complaints.



Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - McGraw-Hill's Spanish for Family Pactioners
This is a great book for health care staff and physicians. It enables you to be able to communicate enough to get through a basic patient exam and understand how the patient is responding. It is a great 'crash course' in Spanish.
