Language Services

At Mayo Clinic, interpreters are available at no cost to assist communication between health care providers and patients whose primary language is not English.

Experienced medical interpreters can attend appointments, translate patient education materials, and offer other assistance as needed. Patients should indicate if they need an interpreter when requesting an appointment at Mayo Clinic.

At Mayo Clinic in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota, interpreters are available in person for many languages, and through telephone services for all others.

In addition, multilingual appointment, registration and finance personnel assist patients and families before, during and after their visit to Mayo Clinic.
