MEDICAL CANNABIS CONSULTATION

Medical cannabis is a unique therapy with amazing potential and has emerged as an important therapeutic option for patients with a variety of medical conditions. This consultation is with Dr. Diana Silverman who will determine if you are a candidate for medical cannabis therapy. If you are a candidate, a certificate will be prescribed which you may then use to obtain your medical cannabis card from NY state. We are not a dispensary, however we currently refer our patients to local dispensaries in the area.

You can learn more about the process by visiting the health.ny.gov website.
