Clinic Overview

If you are interested in becoming a new patient at our clinic, please perform the following steps to Request a Consultation with Doctor Chou.

Please note that due to the coronavirus public health emergency, we are currently performing Virtual Visits through video chat on your smartphone and you DO NOT have to come to our clinic in Baton Rouge. 

The fee is $200 for a New Patient Virtual Visit and $100 for each Followup Virtual Visit every 3 months.

We collect a $50 Non-Refundable Deposit when you schedule your New Patient Virtual Visit and the remaining $150 consultation fee at the time of your Virtual Visit.  

Please be advised that we may not be allowed to continue Virtual Visits after the public health emergency has passed and that In Person Clinic Consultations may be required at that point.

Our clinic provides the medical marijuana recommendation only.  You will purchase the medical marijuana separately from one of the 9 state licensed dispensaries.

Patients who have been diagnosed with terminal illnesses or end stage diseases, are unable to work or attend school due to their medical condition, are receiving hospice or palliative care, or receive assistance with daily tasks through home health or facility care, will likely also have an underlying Debilitating Medical Condition.

During your 30 minute consultation, we will discuss your symptoms and review your medical records to determine if your condition qualifies as a Debilitating Medical Condition and also make sure there are no other significant contraindications to medical marijuana treatment.

Just because you have a Debilitating Medical Condition does not guarantee that you will receive a medical marijuana recommendation or that medical marijuana will benefit you.  There is no refund if a recommendation is not provided or if the treatment does not work as intended.
