Deaf Interpreting Service for Siouxland Testimonials

"We are extremely happy with the quality and dependability of the deaf interpreting services provided by Rachel Johns. She is tremendously talented in her skills and very professional in her work."

"As the office manager of Siouxland Hematology-Oncology Associates in Sioux City, Iowa, I have had the pleasure of working directly with Rachel Johns for more than ten years. Rachel has interpreted for the deaf community at their medical appointments with the six medical oncologists who practice at the June E. Nylen Cancer Center. Rachel has a never-ending devotion to the deaf community and their families. An asset that Rachel possesses which makes her even more valuable in this situation is her medical knowledge. Trained in the area of laboratory science, Rachel has a greater understanding of the communication that must occur between the physician and the oncology patient. Accuracy of the interpreted word is never an issue. I would recommend the employment of Rachel Johns in any situation where her interpretive skills can be used to enhance the medical care that is received by a member of the deaf community."

Rachel is not only an expert in sign language, she is an expert communicator.  She understands that effective communication is more than just letters and words formed with her hands, but a combination of expression, mood, and sign.  Rachel also understand her role as an interpreter.  She serves with integrity and takes every measure of care to relay the intended message without interjecting her personal spin on the matter.
