English Speaking Doctors and Dentists in Nagoya

doctor_japanTo begin with the most basic, there are two major emergency numbers in Nagoya, Japan. Dialing 110 will connect you with the police, while 119 will connect you with the fire department in case of emergency, fire, injury or illness. If you need immediate emergency assistance, that is the way to get it. Emergency services suggest that you practice dialing emergency numbers before you need them. In a stressful situation, you will lose a lot of your coordination, and dialing will become difficult, let alone remembering the number in Nagoya. For your personal protection and safety, it is a good idea to pre-program those numbers into your phone and label them clearly as FIRE and POLICE. It may sound silly, but it will save you precious time when you, or someone else, really need it.

There are more English speaking doctors in private practice, clinics and large hospitals in Nagoya than you might think, but health care systems vary among countries, so even though your doctor speaks English it is a good idea to visit the clinic or hospital in your area prior to having an illness. This will give you a chance to check out the medical facilities in advance, get familiar with the registration process, and meet your doctor before the flu turns you into, well, a much less pleasant and patient person.
