Matthew Martin

FRANK Clack

Doc MJ has been my reliable source of Medical Marijuana care and advise for over 4 years now. They offer affordable payment plans or pay all at once . Keep up the great work.

William Miller

The moment I walked in Beanca made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I was a couple minutes late and she took me right in. Had great conversations about my diagnosis etc. Saw doctor 5 minutes later, he was welcoming, accommodating, and knowledgeable. He was able to get me approved. Just filled out the application today (appt. was yesterday) and as soon as my payment is processed w/ the state registry I can go to dispensary. Same/next day. Solid. And you can tell they actually care about my well being. Thank you!

Ed Nelson

Dr Mars was great. He explained many things I did not know as well as being very thorough in his explanations. Looking forward to our next visit.

david detling

The best office in pensacola! Lynnina is friendly and a total professional . And you cant ask for a better doctor. Dr. derkaz is always ready to discuss how treatments are progressing. If you are going to use Docmj in pensacola- this is the place to be.

Christopher Scott

I've been going to DocMJ for a few years now and I've always been pleased by the service I've received there. I've never had to wait past my appointment time. They are efficient and knowledgeable. I've also found the staff and the doctors to be very polite. That really goes a long way these days as far as I'm concerned.

Joseph Sasso

pleasant efficient experience
