Medical consultation, evaluation, and supervision of cannabis use for the treatment of approved medical conditions.
Cannabis has been clearly shown to have important and powerful medicinal properties and is a useful treatment for many types of illnesses and conditions in part from the anti-inflammatory properties of the CBD’s associated with this medicine. It is a naturally occurring product with minimal side effects that may be used in many ways and forms.
Michael Bedecs, D.O. provides private consultation, medical review and advice to patients regarding the medicinal use of Cannabis. And to qualifying clients, he provides a state certificate to purchase marijuana from assigned state dispensaries, private licensed caregivers as well as be allowed to legally grow up to six plants for their own use.
