Quick easy and fast. I had knee surgery back in January and they found arthritis forming. The next step would’ve been to put me on opioids. I want to thank them for providing an alternative for pain management.
Shocked how easy! Kind and understanding, definitely the best way to get your med card.
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.

Great service! Thank you for supporting the medical marijuana community.
