We have officially had our first medical experience in Japan. I had to take Christopher to the doctor because he had a horrible cough that was just getting worse and he seemed to be sucking on an inhaler about every hour.
Here is a synopsis of our dr visit
Left the house at 4:05.
Arrived at dr office: 4:20
Saw dr: 4:27
Paid bill and left with 4 medicines (not a prescription but medicine in hand): 4:50
Arrived home: 5:10
Total cost: ¥5,000 ($55.86)
Yes you saw that right. All this:
For a mere $55.86. (and we don't even have any Japanese cheap health insurance) And it only took an hour... amazing.
