NORFOLK- When Jose Nuno was a kid growing up, seeing a health care professional was an awkward, and intimidating experience.
Nuno’s family speaks Spanish so it was a challenge to communicate with a doctor. He doesn’t want Spanish speaking families to have the same experience he did.
His ability to speak Spanish proves to be an advantage in helping to serve Latino patients.
If he didn’t speak Spanish translators would be available, but Nuno says he enjoys being able to give patients the care they deserve.
