Please don't say this to a patient. It is a medical term that isn't used in general English and will only alienate your patient. Just say 'under your tongue'.

Hi,
I think a patient doesn't mean he is always a layman without medical knowledge. Now a days most patients come with complete knowledge about their ailment and discuss with the doctor in medical language. This is my personal experience. The question of speaking medical English with the patient is optional for the doctor depending on the type of patient he is dealing with. This is what all I have to say as a doctor.
Thanks, Mary D

Mr.John,
