Confirm Qualifying Medical Diagnosis

If you are a Louisiana resident of any age and have a current and active diagnosis from the following list, you may be eligible for treatment with medical marijuana.

If your condition is not specifically listed, then you cannot receive a medical marijuana recommendation.

There are many additional qualifications that have to be met during the consultation to receive a medical marijuana recommendation.  Just because you have a qualifying medical condition or receive a consultation does not guarantee you will receive a medical marijuana recommendation.

 

Review Our Website

We require that you carefully review this page, the Clinic Information page, and the Louisiana Medical Marijuana Program page before requesting a consultation.  Many of your questions will be answered within these pages.

Currently no dispensaries or medical marijuana is available in Louisiana.  While current estimates put the product release between June and August of 2019, this timeline is not guaranteed and delays may occur.

If we are not able to provide a recommendation because medical marijuana product has not yet been released, we will submit a recommendation when product is available.

Baring extraordinary circumstances, your consultation does not expire and you will not be required to followup with us until medical marijuana product is available.

We cannot guarantee the price of the product, if there will be dosage limitations, whether the product would meet your needs, when the product will be available, when your local dispensary will be open, if all eligible patients will be able to obtain product, or any other issues outside our control.

In addition, we are required to follow all applicable medical guidelines, state laws, and medical board regulations regarding general medical practice, treatment of chronic pain, and recommending of medical marijuana.

These guidelines, laws, and regulations can change suddenly and without notice.  Your ability to receive a medical marijuana recommendation could be adversely affected by changes to any of the above.

 

Submit Request A Consultation Form

To request a new patient consultation, please submit the Request A Consultation Form at the bottom of this page.

You will need to provide the following information:

  • Patient Name
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Birth Date

You will also need to affirm the following:

  • I agree to pay a $50 Non-Refundable Deposit now and the remaining consultation fee ($150) at the time of consultation.
  • I am a Louisiana resident and I have recent medical records demonstrating a qualifying medical condition.
  • I acknowledge that a recommendation is not guaranteed and that deposits and fees are not refunded for any reason.
  • I have reviewed the Request a Consultation, Clinic Information, and Louisiana Medical Marijuana Program pages on this website.
  • I understand the clinic does not sell or possess medical marijuana or control the product availability, formulation, or price.

 

Pay Non-Refundable Deposit

After you have submitted your Request a Consultation Form, you will need to pay a $50 Non-Refundable Deposit with a credit or debit card.

No refunds of deposits or fees are provided under any circumstance.  Specifically, deposits or fees are not refunded if we are unable to provide a medical marijuana recommendation, regardless of reason.

Because your deposit is applied to a specific consultation date and time, once your consultation is scheduled, missing the appointment for any reason (such as cancellation, no-show, or rescheduling) will result in loss of your NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT.

Your deposit is applied towards your $200 consultation fee.  The remainder of the consultation fee ($150) is due at the time of your visit.  We accept credit cards and debit cards.  We do not accept cash or checks.

Insurance does not reimburse us for the specialized and extensive consultation that we provide.  Thus, we do not accept insurance.

 

Read Information Packet

After we have processed your Request for Consultation and Non Refundable Deposit, you will receive an Information Packet.

This 12 page packet will contain additional important information, including our address in Baton Rouge, clinic contact information, consent forms, privacy policy, consultation tips, fee schedule, and medical records request form.

Please print, read, and sign your information packet and bring it with you to your consultation.  Please do NOT mail it.

 

Collect Medical Records

We do not make any new diagnoses here.  You MUST be able to provide medical records from the past 12 months from your current treating physician substantiating your qualifying medical diagnosis.

Please start gathering your medical records which contain information regarding your qualifying medical condition.  If needed, please submit the medical records request form contained in your information packet to your doctor’s office ASAP to request a copy of your medical records.

The records must state your diagnosis, how long you’ve had your medical condition, your previous treatments, and your current treatment plan. 

These records must be on paper as we are unable to access records on electronic media or online. 

We also want to know all medications you currently take or have tried, including marijuana products.  Pictures of labels or packaging are very helpful.

Once you have your medical records, please bring them to your appointment.  Please do NOT mail them.

 

Schedule Appointment

After we have processed your Request for Consultation and Non Refundable Deposit, you will be able to schedule your consultation.

Consultations are usually scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

Because our consultations last approximately 40 to 60 minutes and we usually provide only 3-5 consultations a day, our appointments are usually scheduled 2-4 weeks out.

We look forward to meeting you on your consultation day.
