Determine If You Qualify
It is important to make sure you have a qualifying diagnosis before making an appointment at LifeBoost. You can find out more information by visiting our cannabis eligibility page or simply give us a call at (561) 922-9967.
Once you visit our clinic in Boca Raton for your evaluation, we start the application process that same day. The state of Florida takes anywhere from 25-30 days on average to approve and issue your Medical Marijuana ID Card.
During your appointment, the medical marijuana doctor will:
- Obtain informed consent from the patient or parent/legal guardian to allow treatment
- As required by Florida law, determine if the patient/family agrees that there are no other satisfactory alternative treatment options and then make a record on the patient’s chart accordingly
- Document any changes in the patient’s treatments or medical status
- Make a record of a specific dosing plan and method of administration such as inhaled/vaporized, oral tincture, capsule, etc
It is important to note that prior to the second appointment the patient’s chart should contain documentation from the mental health provider or physician who originally diagnosed or is presently treating the qualifying condition or symptom. There are also other additional documentation requirements for patients under 18 or patients with a terminally ill condition.
If you are a first-time patient or returning to LifeBoost please fill out this
