NIC has been closely following the progress of COVID-19.
Our priority is to prioritize our patients' health while protecting the safety of our staff.
We follow the recommendations of the WHO, CDC, The Japanese Association of Infectious Diseases, Japan Primary Care Association and The Hokkaido Public Health Department.
Our current practice is as follows;
All patients with flu-like symptoms should rest at home. If you have any concerns, please call us for advice.
We are able to issue your regular prescription for diabetes or high blood pressure using online consultation services.
We are trying to avoid having all patients wait simultaneously in the waiting room. If you come by car, we ask you to wait inside the car. We will guide you to our emergency entrance for the consultation.
We disinfect our medical instruments such as the stethoscope and blood pressure machine between patients.
We do take care of our staffs' health.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
