    Do I need to be referred to your clinic by another physician?

    Absolutely not! Our physicians can and will evaluate anyone who feels that they can benefit from medical cannabis.

    Can you tell me the process of getting a cannabis evaluation?

    When you arrive at our office, you will be asked to fill-out a medical history form along with some additional documents and disclosures. Patients must have on their person a valid state-issued ID or driver’s license with them to establish proof of residency. If they do not have an ID or driver’s license, a utility bill, lease, or bank statement will be sufficient to establish proof of residency. Then, your blood pressure will be taken by our medical assistants on staff and you will be escorted to a private room for your consultation with our physician. The interview usually lasts about 10 minutes. After the interview is completed you will be given your recommendation and the packet to mail off to the state to get your official medical marijuana card. That’s all there is to it!

    What do I need to bring to my visit?

    Please bring in your Driver’s license or state ID card showing that you are a resident of the state. Patients are strongly encouraged to bring in medical records or old prescription bottles with their name on them. In some cases, exceptions can be made for patients who do not have access to or have lost their documentation.

    Do I have to pay the evaluation fee if I do not receive a marijuana recommendation?

    No. If the physician does not approve you, you do not have to pay any fees. In other words, you only pay the evaluation fee if you are approved.

    Do I have to be at least 18 to be a patient?

    No, as long as the legal guardian signs a waiver for the minor, someone who is under 18 may still be eligible to become a patient.

    Will there be any privacy issues with respect to having a state–issued medical marijuana card?

    No. Your doctor’s visit is protected under the privacy laws of HIPPA and thus nobody will know that you are a patient but you (or anyone you show your ID to!)
