We recommend regular check-ups

Regular checkups lead to early detection and early treatment of diseases such as cancer.
Refraining from receiving medical examinations due to concerns about infection with the new coronavirus infection may delay the discovery of the disease.
At medical institutions and venues where examinations are conducted, we are taking measures to prevent infection, such as disinfection and physical condition checks.
Get regular checkups to stay healthy.
