Frequently Asked Questions 

Can I use my Japanese Health Insurance?

Yes, you can use your Japanese Health Insurance for appointments with our doctors. We accept Employee’s Health Insurance (Shakai hoken) and Japan National Health Insurance (Kokumin Kenko Hoken).

Can I get a prescription for medication?

Absolutely. We provide patient-centered care, which means the doctor will create a treatment plan for you based on your symptoms and preferences. Please note that psychiatric medication requires you to be present in person for the initial consultation.

How much will a visit cost?

Initial appointments cost around ¥3500 to ¥6000 (depending on additional tests, prescriptions, etc.), and subsequent visits usually cost around ¥1500.

Can I get an ADHD Test?

Yes, you can. Please schedule an appointment with a doctor and mention your interest in an ADHD test when you make your booking. After your first consultation, we will decide together which type of test is best for you and make preparations for one accordingly.

Do you offer any online services?

We do! If you are not able to visit us in person, please contact us at english@roppongi-clinic.jp for more details about making an online appointment.

Do I need an appointment?

We recommend you book an appointment to ensure there is sufficient time for your consultation and to reduce waiting times. Appointments can be made here.

Can I reschedule my appointment if I can’t make it?

Yes, you can. Our English-language booking system easily allows you to cancel and reschedule appointments at your convenience. Or, if you’d rather, you can email us to reschedule.

What is a 診断書 (Doctor’s Note)?

診断書 (shindansho) is a document that your doctor may be able to write for you based on your consultation that allows you to take time off of work or school to help your recovery. Most Japanese workplaces and schools require this document to grant you sick leave.

How can I get a doctor’s note?

We can issue a standard format doctor’s note (診断書 / medical certificate) on the day of your appointment after your consultation with the doctor upon request. If you require the note in English and your consultation is on a weekend, this may take until the next weekday to be available.

What is a 傷病手当 (Sickness Allowance)?

Depending on your insurance provider, you may be able to earn a part of your salary while you’re off sick. You’ll need the endorsement from a doctor. Please speak to your insurance provider to get the right documents needed.

How do I get a 傷病手当 (Sickness Allowance)? What are the rules?

You’ll need to be seeing a doctor regularly, usually at least once every 2-4 weeks, and taking time off of work using a medical certificate. Once you acquire the correct documents from your provider, bring them to your appointment. The doctor will check your attendance and sign off if all points have been met. Please note that we can not cover for any period prior to your first appointment, nor can we cover for any date beyond the signing date. Please contact us for more details regarding your specific situation.

I’m a 16-year-old student, can I consult with a doctor?

Yes, you can. We see patients aged 15 and older, and there is no parental consent required to see a doctor or a psychotherapist. But, patients aged 19 and younger will require parental consent to get certain treatments, such as prescription medication. Please enquire for more details.

Can I bring a friend with me to the clinic for support?

You are welcome to bring another adult with you for support. If plan on bringing another person with you to your appointment, please let us know beforehand, either when you book or by email.
