What Happens Next?

Your MMJ card comes in the mail in about 2 weeks.  Take your card to the Dispensary of choice, and let them help you determine which form of marijuana is best for you.

What Do You Need to Do?

  1. Review the list of Qualifying Conditions to see if you qualify.  If you have a question, or are just uncertain, call us for a free consultation.
  2. Collect copies of your medical records for the qualifying condition for the past 12 months.  We don't need every record, just those that are related to the qualifying condition.
  3. Make an appointment to be seen in the office by calling or texting 602-566-2015.  The appointment takes about an hour.  Be sure to bring Identification and a big smile - because we take your picture!
  • If you do not have copies of your records, but have been to see a doctor, we have a Medical Release Form posted on this page. Simply download the form, complete it, and send or deliver it to the doctor or clinic.  When we receive it, we'll let you know.
  • If you do not have records because you haven't seen a physician about the qualifying condition in more than a year, you will need to go back and be seen again, or establish care here for a period of time. Then we can rely on our own evaluation and testing - which is much preferred.

Our Fees For Medical Marijuana

There are two fee for Medical Marijuana: 

- The fee for the State of Arizona

  • The State fee is $150.00 per year, and must be paid on a debit or credit card.  The state can't take cash.

  2. A copy of the award letter for the current fiscal year.

- The doctor's office fee

  • In our office, the normal fee is $135.00.  We take cash, credit or debit.  With that, you get:

Medical Marijuana

We are happy to complete the evaluation for medical marijuana certification in this office; not all doctors will do that, but our experience shows it to be the right choice for some patients.

Please be advised!  We require you to provide adequate medical records to certification.  This means records such as chart notes - but not patient educational materials - provided by another physician.

If you do not have medical records, we will require you to establish yourself as a patient here, and we will conduct the needed evaluations - which means you will NOT receive immediate certification.

There are only a few "qualifying conditions" in Arizona, which include:

  • Agitation in Alzheimer's Disease (AD)
    • ​This is NOT merely a diagnosis of AD; this is a unique complication of AD
  • ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease)
  • Cancer
  • Crohn's
  • Glaucoma
  • Hepatitis C
  • ​PTSD (requires ongoing treatment)

In addition, Arizona also allows some persons with other chronic and debilitating conditions to use medical marijuana:

  • Cachexia or Wasting Syndrome - such as the unintended and untreatable loss of more than 10% of body weight in the past 6 months
  • Severe Nausea - such as from chemotherapeutic drugs
  • Muscle spasms - such as from MS
  • Seizures - such as from Epilepsy
  • Severe and Chronic Pain​ - to us, this means a pain level which is at least "7" on a 10-point scale, which has persisted for at least three months.

We are not a dispensary, and no product is allowed on the premises.

The fees are slightly different for this service than the others.  For additional information, just ask!
