Our doctors care for children with fevers, pain, ear and throat infections, rashes, colds and flu. We also help families find the best care and prevention measures when children have chronic, ongoing problems, such as asthma (breathing problems), atopic dermatitis (eczema), or food allergies.

Patient safety is a priority at our clinic. Our staff and physicians strive to provide our patients with the safest and highest quality care. We believe that our patients and their families should be active partners in patients’ care.

In our clinic, laboratory tests including emergency diagnostic tests are conducted by skilled and experienced clinical laboratory technologists.
Specimens for special tests not available in our clinic are sent to SRL, which is the leading laboratory testing company in Japan.
We are always focusing on the improvement of accuracy and reliability of our laboratory test results.
Vaccines are supposed to be stored at recommended temperatures. Especially, live-attenuated vaccines are susceptible to temperature change and light. To avoid vaccine failure, we take the utmost care regarding vaccine storage condition. In order to do so, we use a refrigerator and freezer optimal for vaccine storage. We maintain refrigerator’s temperature within acceptable range as well.
