Medical Cannabis

Hello! An update from ECIM on Medical Cannabis.

The Florida State Cannabis Program has continued to evolve rapidly over the past 2 years.  Here at ECIM we are proud to announce robust growth in the amount of patients we are treating with Medical Cannabis.  Patient feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.  Having said that, cost has been brought up by patients as an area of concern.  We are advising our patients to make avail of dispensary sales and and first time client/patient discounts.  We recommend patients sign up to Dispensary Email lists and monitor for sales.  Further since implementation of state law, we have maintained our initial consultation fee at $200.00 and $85.00 for follow up.  We recommend potential patients to research individual practice rates to suit their needs, call the office if you have ANY questions and/or need more information.

As we inform all our medical cannabis patients State Law mandates a 210 day follow up with the Physician.  Here at ECIM we are letting all our patients take full advantage of that time span, any renewals simply call the office, no need to come in, unless there is an issue.  If you are coming in more frequently than you would like, consider switching.

In other news, Flower has arrived and access can be provided to patients where appropriate.

We want to say Thank You to our patients and their respective referral sources, we are glad to play a role in providing relief to patients and witnessing history correct itself.
