If you have the pages and you only need a basic translation  why not go into Google Translate app on your phne and take a photo of the page use your finger to highline the area on the page you want translated and follow the instructions. It's very easy and you can Google how to use Google translate and there could even be a YouTube tutorial. 

Just try it and see. I'm assuming your doctor is treating any problems but if he's given you the paperwork to read then you can do that yourself. Really no need for a translator to translate paperwork these days unless you don't understand the translated text.

Try it and see. I use it all the time.

Like Jan suggests I use Google Translator to simply copy and paste the text requiring translation, no need to spend money on translation services.

When I wanted to translate a multi-page informe about my wife's cancer, I struggled with all the abbreviations.

Using the following resources, I was able to translate and understand nearly all of them:

http://www.medilexicon.com/

http://www.cosnautas.com/en

You need to register (free) to use the last one, but that wasn't a problem, and it was probably the most helpful of the three.
