The Department of Psychosocial Oncology oversees the provision of interpreter services for non-English speaking patients. This is done through use of telephonic interpreters, in-person interpreters and sign language interpreters. The method of interpretation is dependent on the amount of notice of need, the language needed, the availability of interpreters and the patient’s needs. Interpreter services are provided at no cost to the patient. Use of family members or any of our diverse staff for interpretation is strongly discouraged as we utilize certified medical interpreters.
