10 Best Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics in Tokyo with English Support
10 Foreign friendly obstetrics and gynecology in Tokyo
Are you looking for a place for your prenatal check-up? Do you know that there are obstetrics and gynecology clinics in Japan, particularly in Tokyo with English support, especially for non-Japanese who do not know how to speak Japanese fluently?
I understand that it is stressful to go to the clinic or hospital for a check-up and then you don’t understand what the doctors are saying. It’s very important that we understand what they’re saying. Here in Japan, some terms are only used in clinics or hospitals that you don’t usually hear in normal conversations; that’s why it’s sometimes confusing.
If you prefer to come to a hospital, there are some hospitals with English support services while others have interpreters for non-speaking Japanese patients.
I would like to share some obstetrics and gynecology clinics/hospitals in Tokyo with English support in this article.
