Medical Marijuana Doctors Miami

As of November 2016, medical marijuana in the state of Florida was legalized in the passing of Amendment 2. The new law became effective January 2017 and now Miami residents can gain access to medical marijuana with a qualifying condition.

Florida Medical Marijuana Eligibility

THC Physicians serve patients all over South Florida with the qualification of a chronic medical condition that allows them to be approved for a Florida medical marijuana license. Our Miami medical marijuana doctors provide the necessary medical evaluations, the first step in obtaining a Florida medical marijuana card.

If a medical marijuana doctor deems that patients meet the diagnosis of a chronic condition that is approved by the Florida Department of Health for medical marijuana use, they can then get physician-approved use of medical marijuana. With this approval, the patient can then register with the Department of Health to purchase and use medical marijuana.

Once you are there you’ll be required to fill out a few standard forms that will be made part of your medical record. The physician will then complete a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine if medical marijuana may benefit you.

RECOMMENDATION

Second, once the physician determines that your chronic condition meets the Florida Department of Health requirements for medical marijuana use he or she will make a recommendation for medical marijuana use and establish a medical care plan on your behalf. This is similar to writing a prescription.

REGISTRATION

Third, now that you have been recommended for medical marijuana use the physician must 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.

The recommendation, medical care plan, and registration are required by the Florida Department of Health.  These services are included in the cost of your initial visit and follow-up visits.
