Do I need an appointment?
Yes, we ask our patients to call* or email** in advance for an appointment. This will help us secure sufficient time for each patient and will help us maintain the highest standards of privacy and infection control. Reach us with the following information at info@americanclinictokyo.com

Please acknowledge that there will be a screening process which will be conducted by our staff to determine the most appropriate care for your requirements. We also ask for your punctuality. If you happen to be late, your consultation may become short or we may need to reschedule. We will contact you if you are not present at the time of the appointment. If appointments are missed without prior notification/confirmation, or if we experience difficulties in communication, further appointments will require a visit to our office.

*We only accept requests from patients directly. Friends, family, secretaries will not be able to place an appointment with us unless you are an established patient at our clinic.      **We accept appointment requests by email at info@americanclinictokyo.com but please kindly wait for our confirmation email. We do not consult or handle time-sensitive matters over e-mail. Therefore, we may not reply to all inquiries. Thank you in advance for your understanding on this matter.

What services do you provide?

We provide General Medicine, Psychology, Wellness, and Psychiatry. We perform tests and dispense medicine from within the clinic. We also assist our patients to specialists, imaging centers, and hospitals when deemed necessary. We can also visit hotels and offices (specific requirements apply as this is a premium service, requests are individually assessed case-by-case). We generally DO NOT provide Pediatrics, Surgery, Geriatrics, Obstetrics, and Gynecology (requests are individually assessed case-by-case).

What are my payment options?

Payments can be made by cash or credit card. We accept VISA, AMERICAN EXPRESS, MASTERS, JCB, and DINERS.

What is your insurance policy?

We do not accept insurance (including the Japanese national health insurance). Services are provided on a “cash-only (direct payment)” basis. We do not offer any direct billing (cashless) arrangements. Payments are expected at the time medical services are rendered. We will issue a receipt in English (itemized with ICD code upon request) which can help when in need to submit an insurance claim.

Can a patient visit from abroad for treatment in Japan?

Yes, but each request will need to be determined individually. We can help coordinate care with language barriers, navigating the system, communication with doctors, and arranging/scheduling appointments. An initial deposit will be needed if you are visiting from abroad seeking treatment in Japan. The American Clinic Tokyo will determine the deposit amount based on the type of request. Actual charges will be adjusted based on your use of services. You will be required to settle all other hospital charges and physician charges, at each facility, at the time medical services are rendered.
