We first started in Sarnia a couple of years back as I got into cannabis because of my mother. To make a long story short my mother suffered from arthritis and had a bad reaction to the medication she was prescribed. We speak to many people with similar situations; they seek pain relief without life threatening side affects. Cannabis was of course our preferred option! I learned a lot about cannabis and the legal process from my families’ experience.
I saw the need to help others and had a previous background in the medical field, so it was a natural transition for me. I understand and know how frustrating the system can be and that’s why I made sure one of our keys goals is “Compassion”. When a patient contacts us and has limited funds I ensure we go out of our way and we will process them at no charge. Each patient is treated with special care as though they are our only patient! I give out my personal contact info and welcome patients to contact me directly. I want to give back as much as possible.
Our experienced and knowledgeable staff assists several clinics across Canada. Patient care does not stop once they are registered with licensed producers or after completing submission with Health Canada’s ACMPR (Access Cannabis Medical Purpose Regulations) program.
We h ave the Cannabis Resource Center, DrCannabisConsult.com and now MDApatientservices.com. Marc and Andrew owners of CRC and myself have been working together for approximately two years, our new company together MDApatientservices.com was natural. We found there is a lack of knowledge for medicinal cannabis. The goal is to assist, educate and navigate people in the medicinal cannabis field from coast to coast either in person or through electronic communication. MDA stands for medical doctor access, as well as Marc, Denise, Andrew. “We are a team and teams accomplish goals together!”
The ACMPR program with Health Canada can take anywhere from three to four months to complete, having said that, to make sure each patient is legal and pain free we register our patients with licensed producers of the patients choice, this way they will have access to the medicinal prescription they need within a few days.
We make patients feel comfortable from day one. We have helped a combined twenty thousand patients, we are trusted and still GROWING whether from the comfort of your home or on location. We guide them with confidence and share our knowledge and experience.
