We put emphasis on optimal treatment based on precise diagnosis.

We have doctors with rich experiences dealing with skin tumor. We put emphasis on skin tumors that are common in an aged society such as the San-in region. We believe that our histopathological diagnosis that is necessary for diagnosis of many skin diseases is top level in Japan. For outpatient service, we use an appointment system; in particular, we try to see new patients reserved by facsimile within the designated time.
