Why Use a Professional Medical Interpreter?

Patients who don’t speak English as a first language sometimes depend on family or friends to help them communicate. While this may meet your day-to-day needs, a family member or friend may have a hard time interpreting medical words or describing medical procedures. This can result in confusion and misunderstanding.

Even if you speak English as a second language, during serious illness you may find that it is easier for you to understand information in your native language. Talk with your care team about getting a Dana-Farber interpreter when your talk about your health and medical care.
