Serving our existing and new patients

At this time, all MMTCFL clinics will remain open and operate during normal business hours in an effort to best serve our current and new patients. During this time of global pandemic, it is essential to offer life-changing, alternative medicine such as medical marijuana. COVID-19 has undoubtedly caused unceasing anxiety in many individuals, making the ability to offer new patient appointments a critical service.

We will continue to offer new-patient assessment appointments to help patients who qualify for medical marijuana get the medication they need. Additionally, we will continue meeting with our current patients as necessary.

How we are taking precautions

We strive to maintain a sanitary environment for both our staff and our patients. Staff members are continuously cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces in our clinic to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses. Out of respect for social distancing, we ask that patients stay at least 6 feet apart in the waiting room, or patients may choose to wait in their vehicles. Please avoid bringing guests into the clinic if possible.

We ask that any patient who is sick or showing symptoms of illness should please stay home out of respect for others. As we do our part to keep our community safe, we ask that you do the same.
