Greenway says that medical marijuana patients who suffer from debilitating medical conditions not only need safe access to their medicine-they need qualified, dependable medical advice and access to their clinic and doctors for ongoing consultation. Greenway’s Penny DeVries offers advice for picking a winner.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 05, 2012
Everyone wants to save a buck, but there are certain things that are important to consider when seeking out a medical marijuana doctor for an evaluation, according to Greenway Medical Marijuana Physician Evaluations in San Francisco. The medicinal cannabis doctor-patient relationship is just as important as it is in any other medical context. Patients need to know what services they can count on.
DeVries warns that medical marijuana patients are often attracted to doctors and clinics that advertise bargain prices, only to find at the appointment that the offer is good for no more than a one-month recommendation. She also has a growing concern for patients whose clinics go out of business.
“One San Francisco clinic recently closed its doors, and now their patients are calling Greenway in a panic because there is no follow-up contact available,” said DeVries. “There’s a lot of frustration out there.”
Greenway suggests posing the following questions to all medical marijuana doctors and clinics before signing on the dotted line:
1) Is the doctor an experienced California licensed physician with medical and research experience?
2) Does the doctor have knowledge of how medicinal cannabis can affect and control various medical conditions?
3) Is the doctor’s letter of recommendation valid for a full year for the price advertised?
4) Are there extra fees for ID cards, caregivers or extra copies of the letters of recommendation?
5) Can the recommendation be verified 24 hours a day-both online and by telephone?
6) Can the clinic provide information about the legality of using, growing, selling and dispensing medicinal marijuana?
7) If the clinic goes out of business, who can be contacted for verifications?
Greenway has become the premier San Francisco Bay Area medical marijuana clinic by providing a compassionate, non-judgmental and detailed evaluation of each patient’s medical problem, then formulating an individualized treatment plan.
Greenway’s doctors and front office staff are cannabis-knowledgeable, and the San Francisco medical marijuana clinic keeps an attorney on retainer to answer legal questions for patients that the staff cannot answer. The clinic guarantees 100% patient privacy, per HIPPA guidelines, and compliance with all California laws.
Greenway provides two copies of each patient’s recommendation, plus a small card at no additional cost. Once patients have seen a Greenway doctor, they can call or email follow-up questions to get informed answers without additional fee.
Greenway is independently owned and operated. The clinic prides itself on excellent customer service from employees who are compensated with living wages and medical benefits.
The Greenway San Francisco medical cannabis doctors are located in downtown San Francisco at 965 Mission Street, #212, between 5th & 6th Streets-one block from the Powell Street BART Station. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 11 am to 5 pm, and Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm.
