In order to accept large number of patients with such needs, we ask patients to be referred by other medical institutions and/or clinics and bring a referral letter at their first visit. Patients@without a referral letter will be required to pay individual burden charge i5,400j as specified in hospital policy.
And this individual burden charge is not covered by health insurance.

If more than 6 months has passed since the last visit, patients will be considered as first-time visitor. Referral letter is required again or 5,400 will be requested upon payment. However, if the medical appointment was made at doctors’ discretion, above fees may be waived.
