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.

Natural Pain Management
We understand pain to be a signal from the body to the brain that something has happened and needs to be addressed.
However, that part of your brain that analyzes information (the cerebrum for those who want to know) cannot deduce the significance of the "something wrong" by the severity of the pain. Consider the unfortunate circumstances of someone hitting their thumb with a hammer, instead of the nail head. OUCH!
Or, think about how miserable you felt when you ate or drank something that was really bad for you, and it left you with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
These are uncomfortable, but not usually life-threatening.
Now, consider a bee sting in someone allergic to bees. The pain may be minor, but this can be deadly.
Pain may be serious or a nuisance, but it always needs to be investigated.
