Frequently Asked Questions
How do I setup an appointment to see a doctor that works with Green Wellness?
Setting up an appointment is easy! Give us a call at 888.885.9949 or fill out the patient intake form.
Do I need to be referred by another physician?
Absolutely not! The physicians we work with can and will evaluate anyone who feels that they can benefit from medical cannabis.
Can you tell me the process of getting a cannabis evaluation?
When you arrive at the office, you will be asked to fill-out a medical history form along with some additional documents and disclosures (if you haven’t already done so). Patients must have on their person a valid state-issued ID or driver’s license with them to establish proof of residency. After the interview / physical exam is completed, if you qualify you will be given your recommendation. That’s all there is to it!
What do I need to bring to my visit?
Please bring in your Driver’s license or state ID card showing that you are a resident of the state. Patients are strongly encouraged to bring in medical records or old prescription bottles with their name on them. In some cases, exceptions can be made for patients who do not have access to or have lost their documentation.
Do I have to pay the evaluation fee if I do not receive a marijuana recommendation?
No. If the physician does not approve you, you do not have to pay any fees. In other words, you only pay the evaluation fee if you are approved.
(Except Spokane, $60 will be charged for the exam)
Do I have to be at least 18 to be a patient?
No, as long as the legal guardian is present and signs a waiver for the minor, someone who is under 18 may still be eligible to become a patient. Please confirm eligibility, each office has difference quidelines.
Will there be any privacy issues with respect to having a Green Wellness medical marijuana recommendation/authorization?
No. Your doctor’s visit is protected under the privacy laws of HIPAA and thus nobody will know that you are a patient but you (or anyone you show your authorization to!)
