Obtaining Good Medical Care When Speaking Only Spanish
By Eye Physicians and Surgeons, P.A. on June 30, 2017
At Eye Physicians & Surgeons we have a Spanish speaking staff member. She is more than willing to assist the Spanish speaking individual who is attempting to make an appointment or find out information. She is also available if an individual needs communication assistance when in the office interacting with the Tech or the Doctor. This staff member has been known to take one of the handout’s given by a doctor to a patient and translate it into Spanish.
Our dual language employee is Lizbeth Rivera-Summers who works the reception area at the Check-In desk. Lizbeth was born and raised in a Spanish speaking family and grew up speaking both English and Spanish. And as a bonus she exudes enthusiasm and friendliness.
So, if you speak only Spanish - never fear – Lizbeth is here!
