Please note that if you do not bring referral documents from previous hospitals or clinics, you will be charged 5,500 yen at your first visit as the initial examination fee for non-referral patients.

In addition, even if it is not your first visit, it may be considered as the first consultation depending on your symptom. In this case, also, you will be charged 5,500 yen if you do not have a referral.
