I will do my best to speak in English during our medical consultation. However, please understand that my office staff cannot communicate in English. And if you don’t feel comfortable communicating in Japanese, please bring somebody who can translate both languages.

Medical practice here in Japan is naturally based on the rules of the Japanese government. Please understand that all patients must accept Japanese medical procedures. For example, if you receive a prescription for medications, it must be filled by the pharmacy within 4 days. After 4 days it will be deemed invalid.

Each clinic has its own capabilities. Please understand that we cannot respond to all needs or requests of all patients, though we may be able to suggest referral to more suitable medical facilities.


From July 1st, 2022, my medical practice reopens in a new location. As we know, disease, war and economic constrains are rocking the lives of peoples across the world. I believe that, in such challenging times, it’s most important for us to nurture our physical and mental well-being. I see my responsibility as doing my utmost to support all patients in maintaining their best health.
