Cannabis Consultation

Free Initial Medical Cannabis Consultation

I am an Internal Medicine MD and have been practicing since 1999. I run a small, family-run general medicine practice with locations on the North and West sides of Chicago, dedicated to providing compassionate, personalized, one-on-one medical care to each and every one of my patients.

I have seen first-hand the positive impact medical cannabis has on the quality of life of my patients. This is why I have been helping patients access medical cannabis since the program began in 2015.

Frequently Asked Questions

What other requirements are there to get a card?

You must be able to demonstrate that you are an Illinois resident, with either a driver's license or official mail in your name sent to an Illinois address.

Do you accept insurance?

No. All expenses are out-of-pocket.

How old do I have to be?

There is no age minimum. Minors will need parental consent and will also require a second doctor's certification, which will require an additional doctor's visit and cost an additional $100.

What if I'm not sure that I qualify?

Fill out the form with the information you have and let's figure it out together. Many more people qualify than believe they do and, with a free initial consultation, there's no risk to you in trying.

How long does it take to get a card?

You will have a card a day after your appointment with me. Anyone with an opioid prescription can receive a temporary card the same day.
