The majority of our Nashua Center staff speaks more than one language, with nearly half of our staff being fluent in Spanish and/or Portuguese. Staff is available through all aspects of your visit to help you communicate with your health care team and make you feel comfortable about your medical care.
To help with languages other than Spanish and Portuguese, we offer free onsite language interpretation by a professional interpreter. To ensure that your language needs are met, please let us know when you make your appointment that you require language services. This way we can be sure someone is available to interpret at the time of your visit.
If we don’t have an access to an interpreter who speaks your language we are able to utilize a Language Line interpretation service to assist with your visit.
Language will not be a barrier to your health care at Lamprey Health Care.
