Compassionate Marijuana Doctors Serving Akron Ohio
DocMJ makes getting a recommendation for medical marijuana from a compassionate and qualified physician easy and affordable. All DocMJ physicians, in addition to being licensed doctors, have an active Certificate to Recommend (CTR) from the State Medical Board of Ohio and are authorized to permit qualified patients to receive medical marijuana from an approved dispensary. Making an appointment in Akron is easy and can be done conveniently with telemedicine. Whether you live in Cascade Valley, Chapel Hill, Fairlawn Heights, downtown Akron or any other areas of the city, a patient can make an appointment at a time that fits their schedule. Based on a private meeting with the medical marijuana certified physician, patients receive their recommendation for medical marijuana, if they qualify. Patients will be entered into the registry and, in some cases, can purchase medical marijuana the same day.
The Telemedicine Appointment
Patients are required to submit the requested medical records and documentation for the medical marijuana doctor to review in advance of their appointment.
Once the appointment has been completed, your doctor enters your information into the registry. You will then receive an email with a link allowing you to make a payment to the registry and receive a temporary card. The MMJ card will arrive by mail in 10-14 business days.
