有些人告訴我,住美國很好,唯一最怕的就是看醫生,因為英文不好,常常問話問不到重點,也聽不懂醫生在講什麼,寫這篇給大家參考。不要再怕看醫生了,該看的時候還是得要去看,以免延誤病情。

其實看醫生就是以下這幾個情況你會有機會講到英文
1.打電話給醫院你的醫生預約時間
(call to the office and make appointment with your doctor)
 
Hi, I would like to make appointment with Dr.(醫生的名字) 我想和(某)醫生約個時間

第一次去看某個醫生要提早多久去看病呢?
If you are a new patient making your first appointment with Dr. (某人), please come to the office a full 15 minutes before your appointment time to fill out the always popular new patient paperwork. 通常你如果第一次去看這個診所醫生,要提早15分鐘到,填病歷資料。

要帶什麼去看病呢?
If you have insurance please bring in your insurance card. You may also bring in any medical records, xrays or documents that you feel will be relevent 如果有投保保險就要帶保險卡,你也可以帶你的病歷資料,X光片等等,只要覺得有相關就可以帶。
2.到醫院你在櫃台會用到幾句很短的英文
I will be right with you.如果櫃檯人員很忙通常會這樣說,要你等一下,一會兒就會過來幫你服務
Do you have insurance card on you?有沒有帶保險卡

You are all set.等她幫你辦完了手續,通常就會講這句,意思是你已經都弄好了
3.見了醫生,護士你需要聽懂她們的意思

例如護士跟你說要量血壓,請你手彎一下,請你坐上來一點
I'll give you a shot.我要給你打個針
I'm going to check your blood pressure我要量你的血壓
Please lie down over here請在這裡躺下
Come closer走近一點
tilt your head back and look upward 頭往後倒,眼睛向上看(她幫你點眼藥水時講的)
blink your eyes眼睛
Do you wear contact lenses?你有沒有戴隱形眼鏡?
4.見到醫生和醫生敘述你的症狀,醫生通常會問這幾句
When did this start? (醫生問你)什麼時候開始的?
= When did it happen?
Does it hurt?這樣會痛嗎?
Do you have any allergies?你有過敏嗎?
Are you allergic to any drugs?你對藥物過敏嗎?
你需要問醫生的問題我也寫下來了,有可能是以下的這幾句
What are some of the causes of itchy eyes?是什麼因素造成眼睛癢的呢?
Your illness arose from lack of rest.你的病是因為缺乏休息造成的
有些醫生龜龜毛毛的,在看你的時候動作很慢,你也可以這樣問她: [ Are you about done?] 你快好了嗎?
醫生說要開某種藥給你的時候你也可以這樣問她 Is  B  the same strength as original A? B 那種藥和原本的A那種藥強度有一樣嗎?

How long does each treatment last? 每次治療要多久?

How long is the entire course of therapy? 整個療程要多久?

How often will I be treated? 我一共要被治療幾次?

What type of results should I expect to see with the treatment? 做這個治療後,通常會有哪幾種結果?

Will there be tests during my treatment to determine if it is working? 我做了這個治療之後,是不是你們可以藉由某種測試檢驗(test)來得知我做的這個治療是不是有效果

What will it feel like to get treated? 做這種治療是什麼感覺?

Can someone accompany me to my treatment? 我在做這種治療時是不是可以有人陪同我去?

Can I stay alone after my treatments, or do I need to have someone stay with me? 我做完治療後,需要有人陪同我嗎?還是我可以一個人就好

Are there foods or medications or activities that I should avoid while I am going through treatment? 當我在做治療的階段,我應避免食用哪些食物,藥物及活動?

How soon after treatment can I go back to work? 做完治療後多久我可以回去工作呢?
How much will acupuncture and herbal medicine cost?

醫生,有些是韓國人開的,一定要把費用問清楚,這句話是問[acupuncture和中藥要多少錢?]
Will it be covered by my insurance?這個是可以被算入保險的支付的範圍嗎?
Does Medicare cover the cost of (某項診療)?  某項診療是可以被算入醫療保險(計劃)的支付範圍嗎?
Medicare does not cover the cost of (某項診療).某項診療是不能被算入醫療保險(計劃)的支付範圍
5.在做檢查時你可以提出你的疑問
There is something that unclear to me, such as the names and purposes of tests I may undergo. Can you explain it  for me?我不是很了解我要做的這個檢驗是什麼名稱,什麼用途,你可以幫我解釋一下嗎?
Is there any changes since my last exam?這和我上次做的有沒有什麼改變(差別)?
When I should return for next exam?下次要做exam是什麼時候?
How often should I get an exam?我應多久做一次exam?
What tests will I have? 我將會做怎樣的test?
When should I expect the results from these tests? 做了這些test什麼時候可以知道結果呢?
What will these tests tell me about my cancer? 這些檢驗能不能診斷出有沒有得癌症
How long after I have these tests will I know the results? 做了這些test什麼時候可以知道結果呢?
Who will call me with the results of these tests? Or, whom should I call to get the results? 誰會打電話給我通知我結果?或我應打給誰才能得到結果?
If I need to get copies of my records, scans, X-rays, whom do I contact? 如果我需要就診紀錄的影印本,我應該和誰聯絡?
Do I have to do anything special to prepare for the tests? 做這個test我應該準備什麼?
Do these tests have any side effects? 做這個test有任何副作用嗎? 

6.打電話給你的保險公司
建議你打給保險公司照著以下的流程來做
step 1:找出保險公司的客戶服務專線的電話
Locate the number for your insurance company's customer service line. This number is usually found on your membership card. It's also usually listed on the home page of most providers' Web sites. 先找出保險公司的客戶服務專線的電話,這個號碼通常在保險卡的背後可以找到,也可以在保險公司的網站上找到她們的號碼

Step 2:問明某項診療是可以被算入醫療保險(計劃)的支付範圍嗎?
Call your insurance company. Ask if your plan covers (  某項診療   )
Does Medicare cover the cost of (某項診療)?  某項診療是可以被算入醫療保險(計劃)的支付範圍嗎?

Step 3:不要問了一句就掛斷,應更深入的問,一年可以看幾次這個醫生?等等的問題,因為每種保險都不一樣,下面我就舉了去看acupuncture的例子來說
Get the details. If your plan covers acupuncture, find out how many treatments are covered. Some plans offer unlimited coverage. Others cover 35 treatments a year. But some cover as few as 2 treatments per month. Since most acupuncture treatment plans require a minimum of 10 to 15 treatments within the span of a few weeks, this kind of coverage isn't very helpful.
Step 4:有些保險只接受在它list上的醫生,最保險的做法是找出那個list出來,從那個list去選醫生
Find out which acupuncturists can provide treatment. Some plans cover all acupuncturists who meet your state's licensing requirements

  • 以前覺得看醫生真的很麻煩,因為就只會pain...pain....
    這些用語很實用呢
  • 悄悄話
  • Mike
  • 很好用十分感謝

    我們是剛移民來美國
    台灣的英文教育實在辦得太差
    來到美國一切要從頭
    因為美國人日常英文不是那樣講的
    以前醫生問我什麼我也答不上來
    看了你的文章
    學了起來
    以後看病就不會那麼尷尬了
    感恩
  • joanneyu1024
  • 我也是剛移民到美國
    我的英文也很菜
    目前還在語言學校學基礎英文
    你的文章讓我也很受用唷︿︿
    謝謝啦!
  • 波士頓小齊
  • 感謝您,同胞您真的太優秀了

    來美國時忘了買幾本英文書應應急
    本以為台灣學的英文就夠用了
    後來才知道根本台灣學的英文太簡單
    或者是台灣英文老師亂編的?
    反正完全派不上用場
    看醫生時真的有一點尷尬
    感謝你

  • Sylvia
  • 皮膚感覺很刺痛怎麼講哩!?
  • 路人甲
  • 樓上的sylvia
    你這樣問沒人想理你吧!
  • Sylvia
  • 那不然該怎麼問哩!?
  • Sylvia 住美國嗎?
    最近實在粉忙,趕來回答你的問題
    不然你和樓上的恐怕要吵起來了
    通常我們台灣人口頭上講"皮膚感覺很刺痛 "我猜你是說曬後的皮膚痛吧
    如果是那樣的話可以這樣跟醫生說: I need any spray or ointment that help fast pain relief from sunburn (太陽晒傷).
    你的from 後面可以接其他皮膚的症狀
    skin irritations (皮膚過敏), skin i minor burns (輕度曬傷),sunburn (太陽晒傷),insect bites (蚊蟲咬傷)

    希望這個有幫到你
    不過後面的人要問問題的話
    請你們去問醫生比較快
    要不然等到我有空
    可能要等很久

    我最近剛到美國芝加哥 碰到買牛肉一個頭兩個大 因為他们切割方式都不同 可能烹調方式不同 賣的都不一樣 例如COSTCO賣的牛腱和牛楠和牛肋條 英文名字是什麼 就可以讓我在那裡駐足好久
    若您方便 可否多提供一些資訊去哪裡買菜 例如哪可買到新鮮海產....等等 還有台灣人開的超市 我家住在OAK PARK 希望您多提供資訊 謝謝
  • Sandy您好
    歡迎你到illinois,你可以去Assi 買菜,那個city 在niles
    我感覺那裏的菜價不會太貴
    sandy 留個電話,改天我家聚會邀你一起來
    謝謝你的建議
    改天來寫一篇牛肉的煮法

  • sandy
  • 嗨 您好 我又進來您的網站 想詢問豬絞肉要去哪裡買 因為想要包水餃 美國人豬絞肉比較少吃 請問您 都是如何處理 另外我们所說的牛腱 是不是他們所說的shank 但我在Costco看到的是切的一塊塊的 但煮起來並不像是我们常看的有一條條的筋 我很希望能趕快看到您寫的牛肉煮法
  • 豬絞肉去dominics買就可以了,另外也可以去asssi, 天來超市買
    牛肉產品我都是去 seul 韓國超市買,assi 賣的也可以,
