All fluids, such as coffee, milk, and juice, cigarettes and even breakfast must be avoided on the day of the tests.
It is recommended that the examination is received in the morning and those receiving the examination in the afternoon must fast for at least 8 hours before the examination.

Making an appointment in advance at the examination center will make your visit more convenient.

Patients must fill out their own questionnaire, which is available at the examination center. (It can also be answered on the website and printed out.)

Patients should refrain from receiving a medical examination during menstruation (before menstruation, 2~3 days after).

The medical examination fee has to be returned if the medical examination has been received more than once (once a year).
