Great for Medical terms... Spanish-English (Que' Excelente)

(Central New York)
If you're looking for a bilingual dictionary with medical terms in Spanish, this
is an excellent and useful book. Knowing some Spanish and assisting Spanish
speakers at a local clinic one summer, this dictionary was very helpful.
English to Spanish, and Spanish to English. It even has diagrams of the body,
facial features, bone structure, and the different systems. Although it shows
the reproductive organs, there is no maternal diagrams (or any with a baby).
For people starting Spanish, I suggest a beginner's dictionary first. Some words
and slang you may not use in a hospital may not be listed. But words such as
spider, gunshot, and house are translated (since someone could have a bug-bite
or bullet wound).
This is great to look at.
I highly recommend this to those using Spanish in a Medical field. Doctors that
don't know Spanish may still find it useful.
It's small enough to fit in your purse (or a large pocket).

Buen diccionario mismo
, January 4, 2007
Great medical bilingual dictionary. It includes the necessary medical
terminology as well as many common words and verbs which might be helpful in
explaining treatment, or foods to avoid for example.

Savino (Mesa, AZ USA)
I purchased several of the handbooks for our medical office. We care for high
risk OB patients, many of whom are Spanish speaking only. Even our Spanish
speaking medical assistants have found the book helpful in finding words they
don't use frequently, but need in our setting.
