Overall Review

The reviews for Asahikawa Red Cross Hospital are generally positive, with particular praise for the kindness of the staff and the hospital’s facilities. However, there are some patients who have expressed dissatisfaction with the response of certain doctors. As it is a large hospital, pre-registration is recommended to reduce waiting times. Overall, it seems to be a trustworthy hospital, but there is a need to prioritize communication with the doctors.
