How to get a medical marijuana card in Florida?
Compassionate Healthcare of Florida has a warm, friendly, and helpful staff. The doctor will greet you and give you some paperwork to fill out (if you haven’t already submitted it through our website) that includes medical forms and questionnaires, disclosures, the same kind of forms you would fill out in any physicians’ office. When completed you will be escorted to a private exam room where your blood pressure will be taken and the assistant will then review your paperwork and complaints with you. During the evaluation, the Doctor will discuss your medical history and symptoms to determine if medical marijuana is right for you. The doctor will spend as much time as is needed to determine if medical marijuana is something that will benefit you. If you are approved you will be entered into the FL OMMU registry right then.
Should I bring any medical documents with me?
For us to be able to fully evaluate you, you should bring the following with you if available. Lack of prior medical records or a primary care physician does NOT exclude you from obtaining your Medical Marijuana Card.
1. Your medical records and/or some documentation from your primary care or specialist provider that notes and or supports your diagnosis. Reports from MRIs, X-rays, CT Scans, or a referral for the evaluation is often helpful, but not required. If you have been to a Chiropractor or emergency room, bring any documents you may have received at that time.
Our ability to charge reasonable evaluation fees to patients is for acting as your consultant and not as primary health care providers so make sure that you bring any recent records that describe your condition when you last saw your doctor.
2. Your Valid Florida Identification-that includes a Florida driver’s license or state-issued photo identification card. Out of state licenses and passports are acceptable, but with them you will be required to submit a passport size photo when you complete you state application.
What if I do not have any documentation?
Documentation is very useful in helping us evaluate if medical marijuana would be beneficial to the patient. Medical records can be obtained from prior physicians by contacting their office. If medical records cannot be obtained, the physician will evaluate each patient on an individual basis to see if any additional documentation is needed.
