Medical Marijuana Consultations San Diego
Here are a few important things to consider:
> Are you being seen by a licensed physician?
Mark L. Rabe, MD, ABIHM attended Northwestern University Medical School and has been a licensed physician in good standing for over 25 years.
> Is the doctor an expert in the field of cannabinoid medicine?
Dr. Rabe is an expert in the field of cannabinoid medicine. He has trained dozens of other physicians on the science of cannabis and has overseen the recommendation of medical cannabis to over 100,000 medical cannabis patients across the state of California. Dr. Rabe and the caring providers atCentric Wellness take the time to educate patients and answer all their questions.
> Is the doctor knowledgeable about other alternative medical options?
Dr. Rabe is board-certified by the American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABIHM).
> Is the visit with the doctor in-person?
A quote from the Medical Board of California’s website regarding Medical Marijuana:
“The initial examination for the condition for which medical marijuana is being recommended must be in-person.”
According to the medical board, Skype evaluations do not meet this requirement. At Centric Wellness, all patients are seen personally by Dr. Rabe.
> Has the practice registered a “Fictitious Name Permit” with the medical board?
Any physician practicing under a name other than his/her own must file aFictitious Name Permit (FNP) with the Medical Board of California (MBOC) .
Before scheduling an appointment at a medical cannabis evaluation center, you should confirm that they have filed an FNP. At the MBOC site, you can see that the FNP for Centric Wellness (#40160) is renewed and current.
> Will your doctor be there for you in the future?
Many medical cannabis “evaluators” come and go. This puts patients in jeopardy with law enforcement and the legal system.
Centric Wellness is a well-established holistic medical practice in San Diego’s Bankers Hill neighborhood, across from beautiful Balboa Park. We provide 24/7/365 Online Patient Verification, and Dr. Rabe personally stands behind all of his medical cannabis recommendations.
