How do you say that?

Getting ready for the trip, and studying up. Making sure I have my pronounciations down before speaking to the docs (I made one giggle once saying "petechiae"), and I found this site- helpful for any of us daunted by medicalese-

azygos, oligoclonal, oh yeah, baby, I gotcha covered.

Cheer,

This is a really cool website.

Azygos was the word that always got me, now I won't sound crazy trying to say it!

Thanks.

Azygos was the word that I always felt I was pronouncing wrong too!!! The radiologist and my vascular specialist would look at me with a blank look on their face.
