The Medical Clinic is a building in Hyrule Castle Town in Twilight Princess.[1] Situated in the Castle Town East Road, it serves as both the home and place of business for Dr. Borville, where he treats patients of their illnesses or other diseases. It is the only clinic in Hyrule Castle Town and serves as an important place in the plot to ultimately recover Ilia's memory.

Features and Overview

After Link delivers Renado's Letter concerning how to recover Ilia's memory to Telma, she directs him to Dr. Borville, stating that he was the last one to tend to her before bring her to Telma's Bar.[2] Given his uncooperative nature, Telma gives Link an Invoice to encourage the Doctor's participation.

At the Medical Clinic, Link can present the Invoice to Dr. Borville, leading him to reveal that he doesn't have the means to pay it,[3] chiding the fact that he lost the Wooden Statue Ilia left behind, which he planned to pawn. He explains that he spilled odoriferous medicine onto the Wooden Statue and left it to dry outside, where it was stolen.[4]

Afterwards, Dr. Borville returns to his work, allowing Link to explore the clinic and push a box that was covering the Medicine Scent. By transforming into a wolf, he can learn the new Scent and follow it outside of the Medical Clinic to locate the Wooden Statue.


In Twilight Princess HD, various pages in Hylian language were added by graphic designer Blake Hollins. These pages tell stories about Blake himself.

  2. "Of course I can lend a hand for that adorable little girl! Hmmm, what else do I know... The first one to bring Ilia to this shop was that doctor... Maybe he knows something, but he's a crusty old bat, that's for sure..." — Telma (Twilight Princess)
  3. "L-Look! I can't pay this off right now! I can see Telma's hired you as some sort of heavy to strong- arm me, but she'll have to wait!" — Dr. Borville (Twilight Princess)
  4. "Look, lad, if I'd been able to sell the wooden statue that young lady had, I would've been able to get the money... But see, I accidentally spilled medicine all over that little carving, which made it stink awfully. I put it outside to dry...but then... Well, it was stolen. Who goes around stealing people's stuff like that? What a world! You always have to be on guard, eh?" — Dr. Borville (Twilight Princess)
