When attending a medical marijuana certification appointment, patients can expect to meet with a qualified healthcare provider who is registered with the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU). During the appointment, the healthcare provider will review the patient’s medical history and determine whether the patient meets the state’s qualifying conditions for medical marijuana.
If the patient is deemed eligible, the healthcare provider will then provide them with a recommendation for medical marijuana and help them register with the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry. The patient will also receive information on the various forms and dosages of medical marijuana available and how to properly use them.
It’s important to note that patients should bring their medical records and a list of any medications they are currently taking to their appointment. They should also be prepared to discuss their medical history and any previous treatments they have undergone.
Overall, patients should expect a thorough and informative consultation with their healthcare provider, who will work with them to develop a treatment plan that meets their individual needs and helps manage their qualifying medical condition.
