Recommended if you are local. I'm friends with the doctor there, Dr. Monda, and he can speak a bit of English. I think he's a good doctor but I'm biased. If you are considering going, remember that he runs an osteopathic clinic so what he can diagnose and treat is limited. He also does not have any heavy duty machines (x-rays, MRI, etc.) so if you need those, then you will need to go to another clinic. I went here to get physical therapy.

Morita Hinyoukika

  • Minami Dentistry (みなみ歯科). website. ☎ 0185-52-8117. Noshiro. 〒016-0171, 秋田県能代市河戸川字大須賀52−3. (map).  The dentist here speaks excellent English and has state of the art equipment. A cleaning and polishing of your teeth should run between 2000-3000 yen. It is also worth noting that the dentist, like most qualified dentists in Japan, is also a gums specialist-- so if you have any gum problems he is worth consulting as well.

Not Recommended

金田医院 Kaneda Clinic
Address: 〒018-3155 秋田県能代市二ツ井町比井野94
Phone: 0185-73-2511
Not recommended. This was the first one I went to and I had an x-ray there. The diagnosis was that nothing was wrong, and I was given some (very weak) painkillers. After chatting with my friends in town, everyone said to not go to that clinic as they usually get the diagnosis wrong. So I say stay away. The doctor also doesn't speak any English.
