Find a Registered Medical Marijuana Doctor In New York City
The majority of doctors in the state are not comfortable with certifying patients for the New York medical marijuana program because marijuana remains illegal on a federal level. In addition, a doctor must be registered with the state in order to certify patients for the program.
For these reasons it can sometimes be difficult for patients to find a doctor who will certify them. We currently offer online Telemedicine visits that allow you to be seen from the comfort and security of home, making the search for a doctor easy for you. All of our doctors are registered with the state and can legally certify you for the program. If you think that you have one of the qualifying medical conditions and have at least one type of proof, then you will most likely qualify. Our doctor can evaluate you, review any medical documentation you are able to provide, and issue your certification so that you can apply for your card.
