    by grz999

    It is fine... Too many English synonyms and examples and too few of the same en Español!

  • Regular

    by felixjsilvac

    Es buena pero le faltan algunas cosas y algunas descripciones que no tiene, esta incompleta

  • Quite practical

    by WhiteJudge

    I does work as a medical dictionary itself not only as a traductor

  • Excelente!

    by Med Info Nut

    I really have enjoyed this app and recommend it to others who work in medical fields or just want to know more about their health. Very thorough and culturally on spot.

  • Great!

    by Amaruarts

    It's making school a little easier... It is surprisingly thorough. Great job, guys.

  • Amazing

    by Big H in NYC

    This has helped me so much in my field of radiology. I totally recommend this product to anyone. I am currently studying for a Computed Tomography registry exam and this app has come in handy. Not because of the translations but just because of the definitions and ease of use. The translations are a plus. There are many instances where I need a a translation for a radiological exam and I have no problem finding it here. Keep up the great work!!!!!! PS: I take the exam next week. I'll let you know the results. Lol.

  • Fantastic

    by Alex MJ

    As a medical Spanish interpreter, I often encounter obscure terms, but this dictionary has them all! I can't tell you how often it has saved me. Well worth it, and more comprehensive than even printed dictionaries I have!

  • Review

    by Roccopagasoadmiral

    Not too bad but needs more work...such as the definition for onfalógena from Spanish to English and what it is? Need more translations of equine medical terms....such as tramos en el intestino

  • Medical interpreter

    by Coopiooopoor

  • Very good app!

    by ChrisOhn

  • Great dictionary

    by Angiemary

    I am a currently student and I will get my certification as a skin therapist next year. I'm originally from Colombia so English is my second language. I was looking for some dermatology dictionary English - Spanish and they were so expensive. I'm so so happy I found this helpful application in my IPhone, which I can bring anywhere with me and just for almost 6.00 dollars. It really become your best friend . If you are in the health path and need a dictionary no doubt this is what u need :)

  • O yea

  • Thank You!

    by Tomutomo

    It's perfect.

  • The best Medical English/Spanish dictionary

    by joemeyer

    This app really surprised me. I felt that the initial price was too high but I followed it with AppShopper and snagged it while it was free. It is easy to navigate and very intuitive to use. It can pronounce the word and in some cases a phrase. It speedily goes to other words you touch on the screen and searches quickly. If you press on one of the words in the translation section or the synonyms section it quickly takes you to that word. It keeps a running history of what words you have recently looked at. I still have not figured out how to tag a word as a favorite.

  • Excellent

    by m_laulau

    Just what I was looking for. Better than the expensive ones.

  • Medical dictionary

    by Studyhard71

    Needs more definitions! Not much good in being able to pull up the words and not getting a definition. Money not well spent in my opinion. Hope this changes, for it had the potential to be an awesome app.

  • Good

    by Beni109

    Just good... It needs Many definitions. It's No help to have a word with no definition. This app has the potential to be a five-star app but it needs a lot of work on definitions... Not too happy about having spent money on this app....yet hopefully.

  • Keeps Freezing

    by Stevelabo

    I loved this app until Feb 2012 when an update rendered it useless. It keeps freezing now when doing searches. Restarting the app worked for while but no more. Now when restarting the app and then rebooting the iPad, the app remains frozen. It is completely unusable as I write this. I, hoping the developer finds out about this and comes up with a quick fix. My recommendation: don't buy the current version (11 March 2012).

  • Good when it works

    by Med interpreter

    This app was quite impressive when it was working. It has recently ceased to connect to any information. I guess it is time to get acquainted with their tech support. We will see how they respond!

  • Mr.

    by Wordseeker2011

    This dictionary is adequate. Overpriced because it has a feature that charges an extra .99 on some entries if you want more examples.

  • Muy decepcionado

    by iWroo

    Otras reseñas dicen que esta muy completo incluso en sus definiciones, están mintiendo no se dejen engañar de cada 10 palabras 3 tienen definiciones, le falta muchas actualizaciones para abarcar más. Ejemplo organofosforados organophosphorates y no dice nada más!

  • Por Favor...

    by Simmo104

    by agleung

    Just noticed the microphone for pronunciation. Would be useful in a bind in the clinic. Also good for learning medical Spanish.

  • Wonderful app!

    by ChicagoV

    Very handy for medical professionals.

  • Perfect

    by RespectedName

    Absolutely perfect! This is what I have been looking for and I can't believe I found such a high quality English-Spanish Medical Dictionary. Easy to use and well designed UI, well worth every penny. It has so many features and designed so intuitively for easy and quick reference use and for long term learning aid.
