How do I find a translator for medical appointments?
By Melia Yanat, Lingolet Team
Medical appointments can put you in a stressful situation. Are you afraid of what the doctor will say if you are sick? Health care costs? The job? Many anxiety-provoking ideas can go through your head.
Also, there is the fear of misunderstanding; millions of Americans do not speak English properly, and the worst part is that they are the ones who statistically have the most health problems.
Misunderstanding a diagnosis or care protocol can have devastating consequences as much for you as a patient as for your doctor.
This is why some patients wish to have an interpreter for their medical appointments.
Unfortunately, taking advantage of these services is often very expensive and requires scheduling the appointment weeks in advance.
This can make you feel even more stressed. So we created a new solution: Lingolet.
By downloading our application or registering on our website, you can benefit from a certified interpreter without making an appointment 24/7, 365 days a year, and in any language.
You will be billed by the minute, so there are no surprises for your wallet.
Your medical appointments will never be easier to understand!
