GYNECOLOGY & PRIMARY CARE


STEP #1 - EVALUATION
First, you’ll need to be evaluated by a physician.This includes making an in person visit to the physician’s office. You will complete paperwork upon arrival. The physician will then complete a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine if medical marijuana may benefit you.

STEP #2 RECOMMENDATION
Once the physician determines that your chronic condition meets the Florida Department of Health requirements for medical marijuana, a recommendation for medical marijuana will be made.

STEP #3 - REGISTRATION
The physician will then register your name and information with the Florida Department of Health’s Compassionate Use data base. This will allow you to obtain your medical marijuana from a dispensary licensed by the Florida Department of Health.

STEP #4 - ID Card
After you examination, you can login to the state registry and apply for a Medical Marijuana ID Card.
Once your ID card is approved by the State (14-30 days), you can visit the Dispensary.
You will receive a temporary ID Card via email that can be used until you receive your
card in the mail.
