Please ask a member of the clinic staff for assistance. Medically-trained interpreters are available 24-hours a day.
For your convenience, hand-held translator units or three-way phone conversations between you, your provider, and the medical interpreter are available. We use World-Wide Interpreters for our translator needs and they are available 24-hours a day, with no waiting times. They are trained to interpret health care information in over 40 languages. After-hours interpretation is available as well. Please ask the front desk staff for assistance if you require translator services. The clinic staff will call (800) 945-7889, give the name of our facility, and sate the language required. Verification of the services provided will be made to the company directly from the clinic staff.
