Description of the treatment

After coming to Japan, the patient visited an outpatient department for a second opinion and selected anticancer drug treatment from among the other treatment methods proposed by the doctor. He received treatment for one month overall, comprising two courses of treatment each involving two weeks of hospitalization, and then returned to Russia.

What brought you to Japan for treatment/examination?

One of my friends had received the same treatment as mine from the same doctor, and told me that the level of medical care was very high in Japan, so I decided to go to Japan for treatment.

What is your opinion of the treatment administered in Japan?

My doctor proposed the best treatment for my disease and gave me hope. The hospital workers had a high level of professionalism and a sense of responsibility, and provided courteous and considerate care to me. I greatly appreciated the kind and sincere help from the international healthcare coordinators, to do with shopping or looking for currency exchange services.
