Although the Clearwater location was a bit difficult to find…once I got into the office itself, the receptionist and staff were extremely friendly and helpful! I arrived for my appt a few minutes early so would have time to do whatever paperwork was necessary. The staff was professional and knowledgeable when it came to questions and descriptions of the evaluation I would be going through. There was information EVERYWHERE about their services. I left there feeling as if I had no questions about the process of receiving my card and what to do from there.I would recommend this office to anyone even remotely interested in finding out more about medical marijuana!!!read more

The nurses and Doctors were very helpful with what plan I could take regarding my conditions, it wasn’t like going into a normal doc visit where they are throwing another pill in your face. They truly were there to help you understand what was going on and ways on how to maybe fix it instead of mask it or try to hide it. I thank God for them everyday 🙏 since I have been an opioid user for almost 20yrs, I really believe I am finally going to be able to say good bye to these drugs once and for all.
