What to expect during your first visit?
Making the decision to become a medical cannabis patient can bring about a lot of questions. At Iona Cannabis Clinic Port Charlotte we go the extra mile to make each patient’s experience a good one. Once you have scheduled your appointment, downloaded and filled out your forms, you will be making your first visit in no time. Upon arrival, our knowledgeable staff will greet you and make sure all your paperwork has been filled out.
After we check you in, it’s time for your private orientation session. Even existing patients learn more than they thought through this series of videos we created to help educate and guide our patients to obtain the right medical cannabis treatment plan.
It’s time to see the Doctor
After your orientation, it’s time to see Dr. Greene, your Local Home Grown Medical Cannabis Physician. During your one-on-one appointment, Dr. Greene will go over any questions you have regarding medical marijuana. In most cases, he will also be able to determine your medical cannabis certification status on site. If you qualify then he will cover the best products and treatment plans for your condition, and submit your information to the Medical Marijuana Use Registry to get you started.
You Won’t Leave Empty Handed
