FREDERICK, Md., Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In 10 months, Green Health Docs has officially become Maryland's premier medical marijuana evaluation practice. With 6 locations statewide and rave reviews on Google and Yelp, Green Health Docs is changing the doctor-patient experience for the better and allowing patients to get access to medical marijuana. Frederick, Maryland, the practice's first location, opened on February 20, 2017. Since then, owner, Dr. Shivani Amin, has expanded the practice to include locations in Cumberland, Hagerstown, Rockville, Baltimore and Waldorf.
HOW TO QUALIFY FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN MARLYAND: It actually is really simple to qualify for medical cannabis and Green Health Docs has made it very simple to understand (https://greenhealthdocs.com/get-certified/). You need to live in Maryland, have at least one documented medical condition (like chronic pain, depression, or PTSD but ANY condition can qualify), and see a certifying provider licensed by the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission. Because not all physicians will participate in the medical marijuana program, Green Health Docs has opened 6 clinics across the state to make it easy for patients to come see a registered provider. Mike Woolf, COO, says "Most doctors aren't comfortable giving patients access to medical cannabis. We think differently here from our physician owners to our entire staff. We see this as the future of medical care in many ways and we are excited to be leading the way in Maryland!"
HISTORY OF GREEN HEALTH DOCS AND MARIJUANA RESEARCH GOALS: Green Health Docs is physician owned and operated and was formed for a specific purpose: to combat the nation's opioid epidemic. So far 3500 patients have visited one of the six Green Health Docs locations (https://greenhealthdocs.com/locations/maryland/) to become a legal medical marijuana patient. Over the course of this year, patients will be monitored via Pain, Quality of Life, and Mood Scales to show the improvement cannabis has in their lives. "By becoming a Green Health Docs patient, not only will you get your medical cannabis card, but you will also be helping to shape and improve the lives of countless others via medical research," says Dr. Amin. This is what separates Green Health Docs from the rest of the providers offering this service.
