Consultation Process

A consultation with our professional, experienced, and licensed staff is the first step toward relief. At Marijuana Doctor, we take pride in educating people of all health backgrounds about the benefits of medical marijuana, and the legal process of obtaining specialized treatment. Medical marijuana may assist in relieving pain, reducing anxiety, helping with depression, and more. Here is what to expect with a consultation from us.

Have a Medical Record

Patients must obtain legitimate medical records or documentation from your primary care physician describing their diagnosis and bring these records with you to your marijuana evaluation appointment

Learn how to request your medical records.

Patients must be at least 18 years of age and they must be a Florida Resident or a seasonal resident.

Make an appointment

The qualifying patient must be diagnosed, through an in-person examination, by a certified physician as having one a debilitating medical condition. 

We want you to be as informed and comfortable as possible when you arrive for your consultation! And, if the doctor determines you do not qualify for our services, we have a no-risk policy, where you do not have to pay. 

The doctor will send your Registration

Once approved, the patient will be entered into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry by one of our Qualified Physicians.

Once you have been entered into the Registry, your physician will provide you with your Patient ID Number. You will need this to apply for your required Medical Marijuana Use Registry Identification Card.

Apply for the Medical Marijuana Card

Patients (and Caregivers) must then apply for their Registry Identification Card (Medical Marijuana Card).

Complete Application & include an approved passport-style photo, proof of residency, $75 Processing (Application) Fee and submit the application online or by mail.

Applications can be submitted electronically here or mailed (with payment) to: Office Medical Marijuana Use PO Box 31313 Tampa FL, 33631-3313.

Fill your order

Once the application has been approved, a temporary Identification Card will be emailed to the patient as well as a physical Identification card that will be mailed.

Now you will be able to contact a licensed medical marijuana treatment center (MMTC) and fill an order placed by your qualified physician.
