Kuraoka Clinic: Providing complete care for everyone

Feb 28, 2023

After many years practicing internal medicine in the United States, Maki Kuraoka Rheaume fulfilled a long-held ambition to start her own clinic in 2010, starting in Atlanta, Georgia, before expanding to Dublin, Ohio, and Dallas, Texas.

Educated in Japan and the United States, Rheaume pointed out that while all her staff are bilingual, Kuraoka Clinic succeeded because of its positive impact on the local community and its dedication to provide personalized and comprehensive care to every patient in a relaxing, stress-free environment.

“I love talking to and taking care of my patients. I always have a positive energy and love creating good relationships with patients. I know moving to a new country is difficult, and I want to bring comfort to those living abroad by giving them a familiar environment with this clinic,” Rheaume said.

“Recently, I focused on mental health issues. Many diseases are clear-cut, making them easily treatable. However, mental health care is much more intuitive. I am working hard to establish relationships with a good support group to effectively treat mental health issues,” she added.

To build upon a holistic approach to medicine, Rheaume recently opened a medical spa with the latest equipment.

“I want to assure all the Japanese who come to the United States that Kuraoka Clinic is here for whatever health issues they may have. Many Japanese expats who have gone back to Japan still keep in touch with us through messages and letters,” Rheaume said.

“I am grateful to have received thanks from previous patients and would like to believe I have impacted them in a positive way. I want to continue my role in this community for the rest of my life,” she said.
