For Those Who Seek Treatment at Kobe University Hospital

Outpatients Seeking Second Opinions

Kobe University Hospital conducts its clinical services based on our hospital's principles. As part of this principle, we provide a second opinion outpatient clinic (by appointment only).

Now that so many different medical options are available due to great advances in medical technology and the establishment of new medical therapies, patients may seek a second opinion from a doctor other than their primary physician (home doctor) in their search for the optimal treatment. Please see the bottom of this page for information on how to contact the department where you can make an appointment for these services.

For patients who wish to make an appointment at our Second Opinion Outpatient Clinics.

Even if you already have a letter of introduction from your primary physician seeking a second opinion, we will not accept appointments from patients. This is because it may be difficult to specify the appropriate specialty or specialist. We therefore ask that you always ask your home doctor to make this appointment for you.

These consultations are by appointment only. So please be aware that if you arrive at the hospital without an appointment, we will not be able to accommodate you.

If your intent is to receive treatment at our hospital, do not ask for an appointment at the Second Opinion Outpatient Clinics. Come to the regular outpatient clinics instead.

If you are a patient at our hospital and wish to get a second opinion from a doctor at another institution, please ask your attending physician to arrange it.
