Meet With a Doctor

A friendly DocMJ doctor will consult with you and talk about your symptoms, medications, and wellness goals. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how mmj can improve your life.

Get Approved

When approved, you will receive a recommendation for mmj. The physician will upload the recommendation to the Florida Department of Health, OMMU. Recommendations are entered into the registry on the same day. In some cases, patients may be able to purchase mmj the same day following their appointment. Your medical card will arrive by mail approximately 10-15 days after you have been certified by the doctor and apply to the State.

I'm giving a 2 star review simply because it has been at least a week and I am still waiting for them to fax the HIPPA release form so my Dr office can't send my medical records. Every time I call they tell me they're waiting on my Dr to send the records. I literally just spoke with my Dr and was informed it hadn't been sent. Now I've been on hold for about 45-50 minutes trying to request their fax number so I can personally give it to my Dr for them to send my records. The staff seems to be professional and understanding. I will update my review once or if this office sends the request for my medical records and I get my approval letter.Update: Upon calling my Dr office. They must have lost the release form or just weren't in a rush to send them. Anyway after I gave the nurse the fax number to your office I received my approval within a matter of less than an hour. I would recommend your practice to others, thank you, and have a great afternoon!!
Response from the owner: Hello Richard. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this caused you. A fax request was sent for your medical records on the day of your appointment and we did not receive your records from your provider until yesterday. If you are still experiencing an issue, please reach out to us at (888) 908.0143 or email us at [email protected]. We're always happy to help!

This card is utilized at medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the state, and will only work in Florida dispensaries. Cards issued in other states may not apply, nor may a card issued in Florida apply in other states. You must be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition by a certified doctor.
