University of Mississippi Medical Center provides interpreters free for patients who do not speak English well. Our doctors have access to a Spanish interpreter and a Choctaw liaison. If you speak other languages, your doctor has access to interpreters through a language line phone service. These interpreters, credentialed and skilled in medical terminology, speak 204 languages.
Arrangements also can be made for an interpreter for the deaf, use of a TTD or other materials for the hearing-impaired, and materials in Braille for the blind.
If possible, please let our staff know you will need an interpreter when you make your appointment, or contact the Office of Patient Affairs at one of the following numbers.
