DETROIT - Oct. 16, 2019 - PRLog -- The nurse at the hospital assured Jose Aquila that if he returns tomorrow, they will have a Spanish speaking interpreter or a Latin care provider. With Spanish as the second most spoken language in the country, it's not hard to understand Mr. Aguila's confusion and frustration at being turned away from health care because of language.

This tale is hardly unique, almost all Latinos have similar stories.  The lack of  communication skills between Latino patients and care providers is only part of the issue confronting Latinos seeking healthcare around the nation.  It is also the false social characterizations and the warped views that somehow these are a population not deserving of more but will do with less. Such a purview when providing care actually breeds mistrust, however well intended.

"These American doctors don't know us," explained Mr. Aguila. "They don't know our family's or lifestyles or what motivates us, they don't even know what we eat.   They assume we are just like other people and I guess we are, but we are also different, we are Latinos."

That point of view is reflected throughout the Latino community and is worn with an element of pride, albeit that its practice widens the gap of acceptance and understanding between Anglo and Latino communities.

That's where telemedicine provides access to Spanish speaking doctors who generally emanate from a Latin country.  Finally, the barriers of communications are destroyed, and a sense of sacredness rather than resentment and uncertainty ensues between the doctor and the patient.  Video consults only enhance the meaningfulness of the consult.

In addition to its immediate and appointment-based telemedicine practice,  Telemedicina Latina has formulated dozens of vitamins and supplements commonly used by Latinos in their home countries and now available here in the states.  These products are available at .  Focus has been on quality, organics and certified products delivering only the best benefits for its consumers.  Again, here too Latinos have been largely excluded from the supplement market yet are avid users of all sorts of supplements.

With winter just around the corner, coping with colds, flus and winter related medical issues will be quantifiably simpler now for Latinos in Michigan. No more indignity of waiting two weeks or more to see a doctor. No more bother or expense in money and time just driving to a doctor's office and then waiting in some room with really sick people. Now it's just picking up a smart phone, engaging an app or coming on line and having a video consult with a doctor whenever you need one.

People in Michigan should call 888-TELEMED or visit, to secure a medical consult.
