Dr. Taketomi’s greeting
Thank you very much for taking the time to view our clinic’s website. I am Masanori Taketomi, Director & Doctor of Taketomi Clinic.
In the last ten years, I have seen many patients following discharge from hospital after surgery and rehabilitation who, due to inadequate rehabilitation services, have returned a state where their daily lives were as impaired as they were before surgery. Typically, such situations occur when the person is unable to attend the hospital for more rehabilitation, or their arthritis prevents them from visiting a doctor. I strongly felt the importance of assisting such people to continue rehabilitation, or t see a doctor easier.
My clinic is conveniently located on Nakayamate-Dori, at the corner of Kitanozaka and Nakayamate-Dori, only a six minute walk from the JR Sannomiya Station. My clinic’s priority is to shorten the commuting time and waiting time for patients and have an easier access and services who have rheumatoid arthritis and rehabilitation needs.
At the clinic, our staff are all friendly, approachable and well-trained. We all share the same goals of achieving a stress-free and pain-free life for our patients.
I have traveled all over the world, particularly in my young adulthood. I speak English and I love meeting people who come from different backgrounds and sharing our different ideas, experiences and points of view.
I love cycling, fishing, skiing, travelling and, food, and good company.
For those who are experiencing difficulty visiting the clinic because due to a physical disability, our staff and I can visit you, as far as time allows, so please do not hesitate to consult us.
