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, our clinic information page, and our medical marijuana information 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 previous estimates had put the product release between March and May of 2019, recent evidence suggests that medical marijuana may not be available until summer or fall of 2019 or perhaps even later.

Baring extraordinary circumstances, your consultation does not expire.  If you qualify, your recommendation will be written when the dispensary you designate has opened.

While we usually require patients at our clinic to followup in person every 3 to 6 months, you do not need to followup until your recommendation has been submitted and you are able to start on medical marijuana.

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 below.

 

 

Pay Non-Refundable Deposit

After you have submitted your Request a Consultation Form, you will be emailed and texted an invoice within 1-2 business days to pay the Non-Refundable Deposit.

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.

Due to the specialized and extensive consultation that we provide, insurance does not adequately reimburse us for our services.  Thus, we do not accept insurance.

 

Schedule Appointment

After we have processed your Non Refundable Deposit, we will contact you within 1-2 business days to schedule a consultation.

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

Because our consultations usually last 40 minutes or longer and we usually provide only 4 consultations a day, our appointments are usually scheduled 2-4 weeks out.

 

Sign Information Packet

After we have scheduled your appointment, you will receive an information packet by email.

This 11 page packet will contain additional information for you to review, including our address in Baton Rouge, clinic contact information, consent forms, privacy policy, consultation tips, fee schedule, and medical records request form.

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

 

Collect Medical Records

We do not diagnose patients 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.
