Tokyo English Speaking Doctors

Tokyo English Speaking Doctors

Here is a curated listed of Tokyo English speaking doctors covering pediatricians, dentists, ophthalmologists and  OBGYNs. This list includes doctors that we (Lauren and Sandra) and many of my Tokyo Expat friends have used and recommend.   Choosing a doctor is a personal decision based on many decision factors. This list below should guide you in the right direction, but the final decision on which doctor you use is yours alone.

If you have other English-speaking doctors to recommend please email me at the contact form or submit below in the comment section. Hopefully, this information will be helpful for you and your family!

If you live in Japan, we highly recommend you have an annual full physical called a Ningen Dock. Please read all about our experience and see the recommended locations for your exam.

  1. I appreciate you for citing my clinic in your Homepage. One thing I would like to ask you is to delete the clinic from HP. This is because the number of patients from overseas is increasing these days, and I cannot now fully provide my service to them. I am getting old and would like to slow down my activity.

    Thank you in advance

  2. Are there any concierge-style/membership-based GP or IM doctors in Japan/Tokyo/Osaka/Kyoto/Kobe?
