medical marijuana

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes to treat those suffering from specific health conditions. Those that have Dravet syndrome or Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, for instance, are approved to use medical marijuana to help minimize and alleviate symptoms associated with epilepsy. 

If you have Dravet syndrome, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, or are suffering from other health conditions and would like to learn more about our medical marijuana treatments, then we can help. Schedule an appointment with the medical professionals at The Medical Centre at Lehigh Acres. 

What To Bring To Your Appointment

We request that you bring supporting documentation of your diagnosis or other prior medical treatments at the time of your initial appointment. In addition, please bring proof of identification (Florida ID card/driver’s license) or other proof of Florida residency. 

For your appointment, we must qualify you for medical marijuana treatment by completing an assessment before you can attempt to apple for a Registry ID card. Once you’ve been qualified, you can apply for the card through the State Office of Medical Marijuana Use.
