@Consultation hours and services are usually 09:00-11:00. Contact the hospitals ahead of time. If possible, take a Japanese-speaking friend with you to help with communication.

@Most hospitals in Tokushima see patients on a first come first served basis, rather than by appointment. So there may be a waiting period of an hour or more.

@The usual procedures for a first out-patient visit to a large hospital involves filling out an application form and presenting it with your health insurance card at the reception desk. A gRegistration Cardhis issued and a chart prepared.

@For laboratory tests or X-rays, the patient will be directed to relevant departments. In the case of University Hospital, the patients will be seen first by a junior staff doctor. Most doctors at large hospitals operate on a rotation system. If you want to see the same doctor on your next visit, arrange for it to coincide with the doctorfs schedule. Recently, most medicines are dispensed through pharmacies.
