“LSA has been an incredible addition to the patient care we provide. Through their telephone interpretation service, we are quickly able to obtain the information we need to deliver the highest quality of care to our diverse patients and their family members. Prior to the availability of LSA’s language services, there could be delays of one to two hours to get the detailed information we needed. My staff loves LSA’s dual handset interpretation phones and it’s a great tool to expedite the care of our non-English speaking patients.”
