What is the difference between checkups and examinations?
Usually, checkup refers to checking whether the function and appearance of various organs of the human body are normal through medical imaging and other methods. In examinations, human blood, excreta, or other secretions are sampled for laboratory tests or cultures to understand their content, quantity and quality, and determine the health of the human body.
Do I need to make a new appointment to see the checkup or examination results?
The doctor will inform the patient when to visit the hospital to see the results and make an appointment on the patient’s behalf.
Do patients need to wait before getting emergency checkup/examination reports back to the clinic?
General checkups/examinations have been computerized, and doctors can directly check the checkup/examination reports through the computer. Only patients undergoing special examinations need to wait until the report is ready and bring it back for interpretation and diagnosis by the doctor.
If I have questions about checkups or examinations, how can I seek assistance?
I. Please refer to the checkup/examination instructions issued by the Hospital or the explanations in the checkup/examination consent form.
II. If you still have any questions, please refer to the contact number on the checkup/examination form and ask the staff of the relevant department.
III. For the results of the checkup/examination, you must ask the doctor for an explanation when you return to the clinic.
Do I need to pay for emergency checkups or examinations?
There is no need to pay first. You can take the checkup/examination form to the checkup/examination room to carry out the checkup/examination first and pay after the diagnosis and treatment have been completed.
Are there any places that can provide people with blood pressure measurement?
