There is no danger of misinterpretation when your doctor speaks your language. Can you imagine trying to explain your symptoms to someone, and they can’t understand because you don’t speak the same language? When looking for medical help, many Spanish speakers feel more comfortable and prefer professionals who are bilingual.
In health care clear communication is essential. Quality patient care is dependent upon obtaining a thorough history, accurate feedback during the physical examination, and valid consent of treatment. Without clear communication with the patient, compliance with treatment recommendations may not be followed; therefore, the patient won’t get better. Good communication between doctor and patient has a positive effect on pain control and physiological and functional improvement.
Nowadays Spanish communities are growing fast; therefore, bilingual doctors are more necessary than ever. In Berks County, Dr. Thomas Canseco is a chiropractor who is fluent in Spanish and English making chiropractic care accessible to everyone in our community. Whether you suffer from chronic joint pain, back pain, sports injury, or simply need help balancing your overall well-being. A bilingual doctor makes it easy for Spanish-speaking patients to communicate their problems and understand their treatment.
Definitely when the doctor can speak the same language it builds a relationship of trust between doctor and patient.
