The Nurse of the Day will return your call to determine the severity of your needs. The nurse will advise you of the course of action to ensure proper treatment. This may include coming to the clinic to see a provider, presenting the next working day for an appointment or calling for emergency transport to a Japanese hospital. All patients have a right to request to be seen by a provider for urgent issues.
