Frequently Asked Questions

Initial Visit: Includes a consultation visit with our certified physician and our cannabis educator, if needed. At that time you will be required to provide us with previous medical records that you may have for us to review and qualify you. If you do not have these, we will have to request them and this could delay your appointment but we can request these records before your scheduled appointment. Once the records are received into our office, we will then review them to see if you are qualified based on your medical conditions and schedule your appointment with the physician. Your appointment will also provide you with information about local dispensaries, products available to you, and help answer any questions you may have. This scheduled visit will also include your profile being created in the registry so you can apply immediately with the state for your card. You will be given all the proper paperwork and information to apply online or through the mail. Our physicians will discuss your dosage with you and answer any questions you may have. Your recommendation will also be placed in your profile upon approval from the State so you will be able to go the dispensary to fill your order at that time.
