  • For children's special health concerns
  • (2011-09-28)
  • I have actually contacted Sunnypages asking them to add the NCCHD to their list because I am on a mission to get the word out about this fantastic hospital. They treat a vast variety of children's health issues in a fairly new and very modern facility located out towards the Yoga area. I was recommended to see Dr. Kusakabe, one of Japan's few pediatric orthopedic specialists/surgeons. And what luck, he speaks English. So even though the entire hospital is Japanese speaking, everything, I could still manage to register, put my little card in and receive my pager, show people my printed schedule and they were always so kind to point the way for my daughter's many xrays, ultrasounds, and castings. We actually moved midway through our daughters casting treatment to straighten out her legs, and the orthopedic specialist in New York (supposedly one of the best in US) was extremely impressed with Dr Kusakabe's aggressive treatment which saved more traumatic treatments downline. Bottom line is, if you have concerns about anything for your child, be it physical or mental development issues and find you are wanting more than your current dr is offering, please ask your dr about this hospital and if any of their specialists can help your child. It is worth the time to go all the way over there. It is new and modern. And if you have national health insurance, it is most likely completely covered. If there was a little more English available I'd give it 5 stars, maybe a translator even, as not all the drs speak English. But other than that, it was a jewel of a find and so thankful to have found it.
