Tokyo Businessperson’s Clinic
Tokyo Businessperson’s Clinic is a unique concept in Japan—a primary care clinic especially for businesspeople and foreign visitors. Dr. Ito is a qualified medical practitioner—both in Japan and the United Kingdom—who consults on internal medicine, dermatology and travel pharmaceuticals. Most staff members have experienced working overseas and are aware of the worries patients may have about medical treatment outside their own country. Unlike other nations, Japan’s national policy is to deliver medical care through specialists, not general practitioners. Although it is an advantage for foreign visitors to have free access to specialists, it is often difficult even for Japanese people to know which hospital is most appropriate. This one stop clinic solves such problems by providing knowledgeable general care.
- Bring this copy of Metropolis in March and get a free melanoma test or radiation dose check when you receive other treatments. (Not available for Japanese nationals)
- Foreign patients receive medicines directly from the clinic during office hours to avoid problems at the pharmacy
- Services include blood tests, electrocardiography, stress management, smoking cessation
