Review of Waseda Takenoko Clinic

Short Wait Times with Reservation (4.0/5.0)

Male, 1-3 years old (comment by guardian)

The wait time was short due to having an appointment. The child was seen for a fever, and after an examination, a streptococcal infection was diagnosed. The clinic director was described as approachable and easy to consult.


Kawasaki Disease (5.0/5.0)

Female (comment by guardian)

When her 10-month-old daughter developed a high fever and rash, the clinic quickly suspected Kawasaki disease and referred her to the National Center for Global Health and Medicine. The diagnosis was incomplete Kawasaki disease, and immediate hospitalization was necessary. Follow-up continued for five years.


Long-term Care Since Infancy (5.0/5.0)

Comment by guardian

Conveniently located near Waseda Station. Dr. Matsushita, previously the head of pediatrics at the National Center for Global Health and Medicine, provided prompt referrals to specialized care when needed, which was highly beneficial.


New Pediatric Clinic (3.0/5.0)

Female, under 1 year old (comment by guardian)

The clinic was welcomed as a new pediatric option in an area with few specialists. The parent visited for their child’s BCG vaccination and appreciated that the doctor listened attentively to their concerns.



Overall Assessment

Waseda Takenoko Clinic is well-regarded, particularly for its pediatric care. The doctors’ approachability and expertise are trusted by the community, especially noted for their prompt and appropriate responses to serious symptoms and referrals. While expectations were high for this new clinic, it has become a valued medical resource within the community.
