When seeking medical care, it is vital to be able to communicate with your doctor to explain your symptoms and concerns and to understand your diagnosis. When dealing with a potentially sensitive issue such as erectile dysfunction or urinary problems, being able to communicate clearly can also go far in helping you feel more comfortable discussing the symptoms with your doctor, which is why the Advanced Urology Institute at Fort Myers offers Spanish speaking services to its patients.
Our Spanish Speaking Physicians
One of our goals at AUI Fort Myers is to better reach and serve the Hispanic population in the area. Physician Assistant Luis Camacho is a native Spanish speaker. He and Dr. David Harris are able to assist Spanish-speaking patients in their native language. Camacho believes this helps patients feel more comfortable when they visit their doctor.
“Sometimes, there are communication issues, and when we speak our main language, we can communicate better,” he says. When a patient is able to clearly express their concerns and describe their symptoms with their doctor, the diagnostic process can go more smoothly. Once a diagnosis has been reached, the doctor can then explain the patient’s prognosis and treatment options, helping to alleviate fears that the patient might have and ensure that they fully understand their part in treating the condition.
