What Will I Need for My Medical Marijuana Patient Evaluation Appointment?
The only items you need to have with you when you see a doctor for your medical marijuana evaluation are valid ID and relevant medical records verifying your qualifying condition. This may include prescriptions, MRIs, x-rays and physicians’ or chiropractors’ letters. Some doctors may want you to bring certain additional documents with you to your appointment, so check with the doctor you’ll be seeing ahead of time to find out if there are any other documents you need to bring with you to your appointment. If you don’t have medical records you can see our pain doctor.
Am I Guaranteed Approval if I Make an Appointment
It is quite rare for one of our medical marijuana doctors to deny a patient authorization for legal medical marijuana. However, it can happen. Just making an appointment with a MMJcard4less doctor does not automatically mean you will be approved to legally use medical marijuana. You must still qualify as a legal medical marijuana patient according to the laws and rules of the state. If you see one of our doctors and he or she finds you ineligible to become a legal medical marijuana patient in Ohio, you’ll receive a refund of all but a small portion of the fee you paid for that appointment. In most cases, rather than refuse a patient medical marijuana authorization, a doctor is more likely to simply request medical records in order to obtain confirmation of the patient’s eligibility.
