See what patients say about Leafwell
The interview with the Doctor was quick and easy. The process prior to that (completing the application and uploading documents) was what took the most time. Price was competitive with others.
Getting my rec instantly and online was extremely easy and fast. I completed the application, spoke with a doctor, and never left my bed – which was great since I have a bad cold. Will always go this route in the future!
Reliable, fast, and easy process. Very pleased with my experience.
Responsive and helpful professionals with a seamless process.
Wow! I am grateful for this service. My recommendation was expiring today and I was amazed to find out I could meet the Dr. Online and speak with him directly for my renewal evaluation. My recommendation is in the mail. Thank you.
I was speaking to doctor, who was extremely easy to talk to, within minutes of accessing the website. Getting a download of my rec. took about the same amount of time. I’d recommend LeafWell to all seeking a medical marijuana rec.

Excellent fast service in our time of need. Staff was very helpful and attentive to our needs! Thank you
