Friends:
I'll be in Michigan over Thanksgiving week, and can see Medical Cannabis patients in East Lansing area on afternoons of :
Nov 19-21 (Mon-Wed)
Please pass this info on to any of your friends that may want to get their recommendation from a legitimate doctor.

So that patients can depend on timely yearly renewals,
I am committed to being in Michigan every 6 months for one week in May and in November.
(specifically Memorial Day week, and Thanksgiving week)

If you have gotten your prior cannabis consultations elsewhere, and you're not due for a renewal,
you can still schedule your in-person visit with me in November, and we can complete the final paperwork when it's due.

For new patients, see "GENERAL INFO" below for my requirements.

GENERAL INFO:
Initial consultation is $250.00, and yearly re-evaluations are $225.00 at this time.
Sliding scale for Veterans and disabled.
We schedule: 45 minutes for initial consultations, 30 minutes for yearly reviews.


General information and my requirements:
This law is quite specific in applying to seriously ill Michigan residents.
I require that you have ongoing care with your physician for your condition, and bring in records from the past 12 months documenting this.
You will also have to have a valid Michigan photo ID or driver's license,
and you must be 21 years of age.
(Any exceptions to these requirements above must be discussed with the doctor before making appointment, and I will require anyone under 21 to have written parental consent.)


East Lansing, Michigan office:
By appointment only:
(877) 787-6900 for 24-hour toll-free message phone. Please leave a name, phone number and best times to reach you.

I believe that my practice standards
"Implementation of the Compassionate Use Act in a Family Medical Practice: Seven Years Clinical Experience"
and co-authored with Mariavittoria Mangini, PhD, FNP
(Published in the Spring 2004 issue of O'Shaughnessy's, the Journal of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians)
are among the best and most protective of any physician's.
http://www.ccrmg.org/journal/04spr/medicalpractice.html
and have been acknowledged favorably by the Medical Board of California.
See: http://www.medboardwatch.com/mbc-May-6-05-Frank-statement.htm

I look forward to seeing you!

NOTE: we don't accept insurance for medical cannabis evaluations.

NOTE: A medical cannabis evaluation does not constitute primary care.
It is assumed that you already have a primary care practitioner. If not, I am advising you to obtain one.

NOTE: We do not perform disability evaluations.

NOTE: No one may give or obtain a "prescription" for marijuana/cannabis.
Under MICHIGAN MEDICAL MARIHUANA ACT, it may be appropriate for a physician to "recommend" or "approve" cannabis use by a patient. This involves giving a medical opinion as to whether cannabis might be helpful in a specific case. We cannot "prescribe" cannabis in the sense of directing you to use it, nor will we help you to obtain cannabis or direct you to sources of cannabis.


I believe that my practice standards are the best and most protective,
and have been acknowledged by the Medical Board of California.
(See: http://www.medboardwatch.com/mbc-May-6-05-Frank-statement.htm )

I would avoid any doctors that do not require documentation of diagnosis, or that schedule less that 30 minutes face time with you.

Seven Years' Clinical Experience"

and posted on my website at:
http://www.medboardwatch.com/implementation-of-7-year-plan.htm


My website:
www.AIMLegal.org
is intended to help legitimate patients know what qualities may be important in choosing a credible Medical Cannabis Consultant.
I have posted the overall results of a survey I did of 24 responders out of approximately 30 questionnaires I sent out to the California medical cannabis recommending physicians I am aware of. I plan to survey physicians in other medical cannabis states over the next year.
If, after checking out www.AIMLegal.org, you have any questions about the website, or physician practice standards and ethics, feel free to ask.
(THIS APPLIES ONLY TO CALIFORNIA PHYSICIANS AS OF NOW BUT I PLAN TO EXTEND IT TO PHYSICIANS IN ALL MEDICAL CANNABIS STATES IN THE FUTURE)


SPECIAL NOTE:
My practice in Michigan will be limited to medical cannabis consultations in compliance with Michigan's new law, and I will require that you have documentation of ongoing care of the illness which you treat with cannabis, by your own doctor.


Any one of a number of serious or debilitating medical conditions, or symptoms of the patient's serious or debilitating medical conditions, can be appropriate use for medical cannabis under the MICHIGAN MEDICAL MARIHUANA ACT, if it is truly helping you.
Specifically enumerated in this law are:

"Debilitating medical condition" means 1 or more of the following:

(1) Cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome, hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Crohn's disease, agitation of Alzheimer's disease, nail patella, or the treatment of these conditions.

(2) A chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces 1 or more of the following: cachexia or wasting syndrome; severe and chronic pain; severe nausea; seizures, including but not limited to those characteristic of epilepsy; or severe and persistent muscle spasms, including but not limited to those characteristic of multiple sclerosis.
