Medical Cannabis Evaluations
Patients will be seen by Dr. Steven Reichbach, an ordering physician certified by the State of Florida’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use. Dr. Reichbach is qualified to evaluate patients for the program and order low-THC and/or medical cannabis. Any approved patients will be assisted with completing the Registration Identification Application required to obtain their Registry ID Card to purchase the medicine from a medical marijuana treatment center (dispensary).
