  1. I went to Azabu skin clinic and they very specifically told me at the very beginning they do not accept health insurance. Everything is private.

    Just FYI



  2. I contacted Garden Clinic Hiroo to make a reservation and was told that they operate a walk in clinic, and I should just come past during opening hours.

    • Hello, I recommend going when it first opens in the morning! lauren

    • I went to Garden Clinic Hiro, and Dr. Keong was unbelievably rude and unprofessional. I had called to try to make an appointment, but was told they only accept walk ins. So I took an entire morning off from work to go. After waiting for one hour, I saw the Dr. who was upset that I wanted a full body check. She made it clear she only intended to spend 5 minutes with me in order to see as many patients as possible, as quickly as possible (extremely unprofessional). She said a body check would take 30 min (which I suppose would be a normal amount of time a Dr. would normally see a patient for, but not a Dr who is trying to speed through everyone as soon as possible), and I needed an appointment. I said I tried when I called, but she didn’t care and actually got mad,
      I have no idea why. I have zero dermatology knowledge, and when I asked some simple questions, she basically said she didn’t have enough time to tell me, have me a piece of paper, and say google it. I have no idea how this women can practice medicine in Japan

      • Sorry about your experience. I have used Garden Clinic a few times and never found the Dr. rude. However, we value your feedback. Most doctors in Japan can only spend 5-10 mins per customer. It is very strange they would not let you make an appointment for a longer check. I think if you go to Tokyo Medical Clinic or Mid-town medical clinic and pay with international health insurance they will give you more time.
