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.

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.

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

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. 

vi:

I have visited the doctors! I waited four hours for my turn.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
