Q: What is needed in order to see a doctor in China?

I have some skin issues. And I need to see a doctor, but I don't know how to book an appointment with a doctor in China.

You must obviously go to the first hospital on your way. You'll get more directions there.

again, you need to give some more context.

are you Chinese or not?
if you are not Chinese, have you asked someone you know the same question - someone who is in the same city as you are.

You can not be living / working in the city on your own, so you must know some local people who you can ask.

again, you say NOTIHNG about where you are, so this seems like it is not a real question.

HINT:
maybe say something like:

"I am living in (city name) and have asked (these people I know) but could not get an answer / they did not help"

Also, 

if you know how to ask questions on a site like this, i take it you know how to use a Search Engine so you can do this search for yourself.
Have you not done this already?

people on this site are not mind readers.

Most of the public hospitals don't require any appointment, just go get a queue number (Gua Hao), hang around the corridor or sometimes the doctor's office, and wait for your turn.

Not quite sure how private clinics operate, guess it's just a phone call away?

Most hospitals will have someone who speaks English on staff, especially in cities with large expat communities. Ask if they have an English speaker. This person will walk you through the process.

 

Most hospitals require you to register with your passport. They will issue you a card. You then go to another registration counter to pay for whatever services you need. Once you have paid and been entered into a computer, the receipt they give you has your appointment number. Go the the department of the hospital that you need and wait, and wait, and wait, either standing in a line or in a lobby area. When your number is called, then you can go see the doctor. 

 

After the doctor determines what is wrong, you may be redirected to other departments, or they will prescribe some medicine. Either way, you need to go register and pay for whatever services are needed next, then go get whatever tests or medicine you need. 

 

Just remember, you must pay for things in advance of service. This is the most frustrating part of a hospital visit. Lots of time spent waiting in the cashier lines. 

 

To get my monthly meds, I have to stand in no fewer than four lines.
