Hello everyone. I’m @olivertomolife and I’ve studied abroad in Kaohsiung!
Have you ever felt sick in Kaohsiung?
Many people go to hospitals that are affiliated with overseas insurance, but it’s hard to know where to go, isn’t it?
In this article, I’m going to introduce you to the Yongming Hospital, where I actually had a good experience!
This is a hospital that I would recommend in Kaohsiung, as it has personally saved my life many times.
This is a must-see for those who are not prone to illnesses, as it is something you should know to be prepared for in case of emergency.
I experienced a working holiday in Kaohsiung for one year from February 2020. Currently, I am writing a blog about my experience.
This article will help you find your family doctor in Kaohsiung!
What is Yongming Medical Clinic?
The Yongming Clinic is a private hospital located a one-minute walk from Yanchengpu Station in Kaohsiung.
The hospital is affiliated with overseas insurance, so it can handle sudden illnesses.
It is the most accessible hospital in Kaohsiung, so it is highly recommended.
Five reasons why you should go to Yongming Medical Center
I will explain the five reasons why I recommend the hospital with my actual experience of visiting the hospital.
1 Dr. Hong’s attentive medical care
First of all, the hospital has only one doctor, Dr. Hong, who treats patients.
He has worked at a famous university hospital for a long time and is said to be a very skilled doctor.
When he found out that I was Japanese, he listened to me in Japanese.
I was relieved to know that he understood the condition of each patient’s illness.
2 Available in Japanese and English
Dr. Hong speaks many languages, so even foreigners who cannot speak Chinese can feel at ease.
I also explained my medical condition, mixing Chinese and English.
Going to a hospital for the first time overseas can be uncomfortable, but don’t worry.
3 Easy to receive prescriptions
There is a place next to this hospital where you can pick up your prescriptions right after you leave the hospital.
In other cases, the pharmacy may be far away or take a long time, but this hospital is connected to the place, so you can pick up your prescription without waiting.
Also, the pharmacist speaks English, so even foreigners can feel at ease.
4 Accurate advice
Dr. Hong’s advice was very appropriate.
I used to suffer from abdominal pain, and he advised me to eat porridge and avoid oil and calorie-rich foods.
As a result of this advice and the medicine I took, I made a quick recovery and I am very grateful.
5 The staff is kind
When I went there for the first time, I felt that the staff at the reception desk were very polite.
They often taught me how to fill out forms for overseas insurance.
Some hospitals can be unfriendly, so no need to worry about that!
- Careful medical treatment
- Multilingual support for foreigners
- Easy to receive prescriptions
- Accurate advice
- Friendly staff
