Finding good English speaking doctors in Tokyo is something that most of us require periodically, as we work and play in this vibrant and sometimes hectic city.
There are some listings of doctors and hospitals available on the Internet and through embassies and other sources. However, what most of us are looking for is some assurance that the places we are considering will provide the care that we really need in a way that we expect and feel comfortable.
A study conducted in 2013 by the MHLW (Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare) of foreign residents found that while the majority of people surveyed had an overall positive impression of the quality of healthcare in Japan two of the biggest concerns expressed by those interviewed were “English language fluency” and “bed-side manner”.
When we are in our home countries, language is obviously not an issue. What we really search for is a doctor that has a reputation for providing excellent care in a particular area, can explain what treatments or procedures need to be done to address the ailments we are facing and whom with we feel comfortable ー A doctor that we can trust.
The HealthyTOKYO Concierge is here to listen to your requirements and find the best match for you in Japan. We do have a strong network of English speaking doctors in Tokyo and throughout Japan and are ready to search within and beyond that network for the right hospitals and clinics for our members.
