Rating: 4 out of 5 stars - EXCELLENT BOOK...I HOPE THEY MAKE AN AUDIO CD!
This small book packs a big punch. There is a wealth of medical spanish terminology well-organized into small related sections that are easy to digest. I carry this book with me and refer to it all day everyday. The ONLY reason why I did not give 5 stars is because there is not an accompanying audio CD. If they ever make one, I will be the first to buy it. Gail L. Bongiovanni did an excellent job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Rating: 4 out of 5 stars - Very Useful
Aside from the fact that greetings and other common expressions often change quickly, and may therefore be out-of-date, I found this book to be well-organized situationally, and very easy to use. I checked the information given on several points and the book's accuracy was confirmed.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - This is the most useful medical Spanish book ever written.
If you are worried that a Spanish-speaking patient will talk too fast and say too much for you to understand, your worries are over. Medical Spanish by Bongiovanni is designed to elicit yes-no answers or short answers. Other chapters teach simple commands for conducting exams, instructing therapy or providing discharge information. It's a gift from heaven. You will develop confidence as you learn Spanish.
