Medical Service Procedures

  Medical services are offered in Japanese. Doctors are required to learn some English during their medical training so they will often know some vocabulary, but if you are not a fluent Japanese speaker it is best to go with someone who is fluent in both Japanese and your native language when seeing a doctor.

  General steps to take when going to a clinic/hospital:

  1. For your first consultation at a hospital, you will be required to bring your health insurance card. Depending on the hospital, you may receive a hospital consultation card for future consultations. Please bring this card with you on future visits.
  2. Tell the front desk what you ailments are.
  3. Wait in the waiting room until your name is called.
  4. Once your consultation is done, pay your medical consultation fee. Medication can usually be purchased at a nearby drugstore or in the hospital.
