Greetings from the Director

My father's job as a psychiatrist influenced me at a young age to become a doctor. After graduating from Hyogo College of Medicine, I finished a residency at the Osaka Medical College and went on to research Cardiology. I went on to work at places such as general hospitals and clinics in college hospitals. I have also experienced work at psychiatric hospital where l worked with both internal medicine and mental illness departments. ln 2012, I started working at companies providing lnternational Medical Transportation while still working as a doctor at a general hospital.

I have lived in Canada for 2 years, and the Netherlands for a year.

I find importance in providing the right treatment for patients with diseases or injuries, even if it means crossing borders. As the world becomes more global and integrated, I believe that lnternational Medical Transportation is going to become more important than ever in the near future. As of now, there are not many places in Japan where a proper international medical transportation can be provided, and my goal is to provide this in Japan as a accessible medical service.

I have also started a medical clinic in 2018, where any patient can be treated regardless of their national origin or race. We provide vaccination and health checkups, to patients with fever, common colds, UTls, and more. Although we do have many international patients staying or travelling in Japan, I would like to think of the clinic as the town's clinic; a clinic where medical care can be provided to anyone that comes.

I would like to keep providing medical care to foreigners living in Japan, Japanese people leaving for foreign countries, or anyone that is in need of medical support.

Staff introduction

    When my family and I stayed in France, we found it difficult to get used to the French lifestyle. The difference in lifestyle between the Japanese and French made us worried and sometimes got us into trouble. Fortunately, there were many people that were able to help us, and we enjoyed our stay in France. l hope you enjoy your stay in Japan without any concerns, and if you need any help to clear out any trouble about your health, please come see our doctor!

    After graduating from high school, I went to the United States to study. l studied nursing in a university in Japan after coming back from the States, while l worked at a hospital as a nurse ald. l have had many experiences working at hospitals before working here at the lnternational Healthcare Clinic.

    As a nurse and a person, I would like to support people who have a new life in a foreign country, as well as releasing nervousness and stress from patients just like others did when I had been going through a difficult time.
