Review of Fukuoka University Hospital

Experience in Psychiatric Ward (4.5/5)

Male, Teenager

Admitted to the closed psychiatric ward for adjustment disorder. The nurses were kind, and the primary doctor respected the patient’s wishes. Despite some inconveniences, the stay was enjoyable.

 

Experience with a Female Gynecologist (1.0/5)

Female, 30s

Visited for treatment of uterine fibroids and moderate cervical dysplasia. Dissatisfied with the response to heavy bleeding.

 

Dermatology: Mole Check-up (4.5/5)

Male, 60s

Visited due to an enlarging mole on the sole of the foot, concerned about cancer. Despite long waiting times due to many patients, the visit was reassuring.

 

Pediatric Ophthalmology for an Infant (3.5/5)

Male, Under 1 year old

Visited while the baby was in the NICU. Due to COVID-19, only virtual visits were allowed. Long waiting times for the examination.

 

Oral Surgery: Tooth Extraction (4.0/5)

Female, 20s

Impressed by the advanced facilities. The hospital building is not new, but the treatment and examination process was intense.

 

Internal Medicine for Diabetes Treatment (4.5/5)

Male, 50s

The hospital quickly identified a misdiagnosis from another hospital and provided the right treatment. Worth the long travel for appointments.

 

Ophthalmology Check-up (4.5/5)

Male, Under 1 year old

Underwent surgery for inguinal hernia. Conveniently located near the children’s hospital and operating rooms.

 

Pediatric Surgery (3.5/5)

Visited for fluid accumulation in the leg. Long waiting times as expected in a university hospital, but received thorough examination.

Age 3-5

Visited for a regular check-up. The hospital is spacious, keeping the child entertained while waiting. Convenient access as it is directly connected to the subway.

 

 

Overall Review

The reviews for Fukuoka University Hospital are generally positive, especially in departments like pediatrics, urology, and ophthalmology. However, there are some complaints about long waiting times and dissatisfaction with some doctors’ responses. The facilities and medical techniques are highly rated, and it is evident that patients can receive specialized treatment typical of a university hospital.
