Overseas visitors and residents when seeking medical intervention in Japan face many difficulties. The Japanese medical system can appear to be slow moving and at times cumbersome to travelers. Opening times for services are limited, and waiting time to receive appointments is often long. When appointments are made, one has to wait in long queues to see the specialist who is often is not proficient in your native language. All of this just further adds to the stress you are already under. The Sendagaya International Clinic was established to circumvent these issues. The clinic is the vision of Dr. Shinozuka (founder and Clinical Director). Dr. Shinozuka has worked for many years as the Vice-Director and Head of the Department of Surgery in a busy Emergency Hospital where he has experienced a great variety of diseases and trauma. During this time he saw firsthand the stress that foreign patients had to endure in seeking proper medical treatment. Determined to rectify this problem Dr. Shinozuka established the Sendagaya International Clinic and developed the Complete Personal Care (CPC) service to provide a clinic for foreigners that is both safe and reassuring. Where foreigners can comfortably talk to professionals about their concerns, or have their ailments attended to, in a peaceful environment. The CPC system focuses on providing a complete step-by-step guide to seeking the best medical services and practitioners draw from Dr. Shinozuka’s history of interactions with leading medical specialist. From initial consultation, through medical diagnostic testing, to major surgery if required, at every step of the way the clinic will act as your guide to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment available. All appointments will be made for you and you will have the comfort of knowing that there will be specialist there can you can speak to you freely in language that you can understand. Dr. Shinozuka was also involved in the establishment 12 years ago of the Japanese Society of Travel Medicine. Since then he has pursued Travel Medicine-related activities as his lifework. He is actively involved in providing information to the general public, as well as advice and consultation to doctors to enable them to provide proper health and safety for overseas travelers.
