What do I need to bring to my appointment?
MMTC providers request that you bring supporting documentation with your diagnosis or prior treatment to the clinic at the time of your initial appointment. In addition, please bring identification or proof of Florida residency.
Do I need the Registry ID card first?
No. In fact, a medical cannabis provider such as those at our clinics must qualify you and complete an assessment before you can be assigned a patient ID number, which you need in order to apply for the card through the state Office of Medical Marijuana Use.
Do you take my insurance?
Unfortunately medical cannabis is still federally illegal, therefore no insurance company has elected to cover cannabis-related treatments.
Is my medical information secure?
We take all necessary measures to be 100% HIPAA compliant. Any personal health information you provide is completely safe and secure.

MMTC is dedicated to your wellbeing and full-body care, which is why we’re excited to announce a new service available at our Tallahassee clinic.

Joseph Dorn MD, DMD, MBA

“I have 20 years of medical practice in general medicine, having spent the last 12 years as a hospice/palliative medicine physician. Providing care for terminally ill patients using prescription narcotics and other addicting traditional medications, which were often less effective with many side effects, caused me to consider alternative treatments, most notably cannabis-derived products. Now I have dedicated my medical practice to evaluations and ordering of medical marijuana products for patients suffering from qualifying conditions per Florida laws. The use of such products is based on credible medical studies that have been conducted on thousands of patients throughout the world during the last few decades.”

A native of South Carolina, Dr. Dorn holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Clemson University and Doctorates in Medicine and Dentistry from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. He has been a resident of Florida since 1994 and has been active in numerous medical missions to Central America for the last 20 years.

Dr. Dorn is Chief Medical Officer with MMTC, and currently practices from our Tallahassee location as well as closely oversees multiple locations including The Village and Longwood/Orlando.

– Degenerative Disc Disorder‎

Since beginning Medical Marijuana my life has improved so very much! It has lessened my pain and my anxiety/panic attacks have virtually disappeared! Also, it used to take me 2-3 hours at night to fall asleep because my mind would just be on overload… now I can take a couple of hits with my vapor pen and actually RELAX enough to fall asleep within 30-45 minutes… BIG CHANGE for me in that area! I take a very LOW dose with only 1% THC..it took a couple of tries to get my “cocktail” right as I absolutely HATED that paranoia feeling but with the low dose of the THC I would recommend MM to anyone with severe pain, anxiety, sleep disorders, nausea, you name it, it HELPS. If you can relax your body and mind that helps a tremendous amount with virtually anything that impairs your life. Dr. Dorn is a very caring and personable man… you are not just another person on paper to him. He genuinely cares about his patients and his office staff are quick and efficient. No matter how you feel about “pot” the Medical Marijuana is not a “high” it helps with everything!

– Severe and Chronic Pain

Medical marijuana gave me my life back. I developed neurological atypical facial pain in September 2016. Two neurologists had no idea what was wrong with me, but a third diagnosed my condition. My excruciating pain is bilateral and moves all over my face. No medication that the neurologist has prescribed has helped and has only given me severe side effects. I decided to try medical marijuana. Dr. Dorn was kind, helpful, understanding, and sympathetic. I didn’t expect to get any relief, but I was astounded that only a small dosage took the pain away for 2 to 8 hours or more. I can make plans again, work again, enjoy life again, all because of medical marijuana. It saved my life.

– Cancer
– Previously treated with chemotherapy, a nonbenzodiazepine sleep medication

I have stage 4 breast cancer and receive monthly chemotherapy to keep it stable. I used medical cannabis oils as an “alternative” additional therapy to [cytotoxic chemotherapy medications] and to feel better. My Oncologist is aware of it and doesn’t discourage me.

I use the Indica 9lb hammer strain to help me sleep post-chemotherapy because the steroids given to me as part of the IV drip make it very hard to sleep for several days. The Indica strain is perfect for helping me to sleep through the night. I tried [a nonbenzodiazepine sleep medication], but did not like it. I also ingest a rice grain size dose of the Sativa oils for more energy and to help me with general body aches and pains which are a harsh side effect of the chemotherapy. On my bad days, the oils and the vaping help with my pain, nausea, and appetite.

I am miserable after my roughly once a week chemotherapy. The medicinal cannabis helps me feel better than I would feel without it. I am also hoping that the cannabis helps kill more cancer cells in conjunction with [cytotoxic chemotherapy medications]. I have read so many testimonials on cancer sites that folks are having similar positive experiences with cannabis.

I truly believe it should be recreationally legal as well. I don’t see cannabis as a “party drug” at all anymore. Cannabis relaxes you and calms you down if you are anxious, or at least that is what I experience with using it.

I am still working full time as a Fiscal Manager and using cannabis has not affected my ability to work as a professional. I only use the tincture drops mid-day as part of my alternative cancer-fighting protocol. The tincture I use does not create a euphoric effect in any way. I am at home when using cannabis most of the time and I am definitely smart enough not to drive “baked” as the FHP PSAs warn about. Dr. Dorn and his staff have been wonderful to me and I am very satisfied with MMTC’s Tallahassee location.

– Parkinson’s, chronic pain, debilitating tremor
– Previously treated with opioids, epilepsy medication, physical therapy

(click to view video testimonial)

Excerpt: “I have Parkinson’s, chronic pain, and a tremor which runs in our family. It affects my voice, my jaw, my hands, my head. And in the past I’ve tried medications. I could have drunk alcohol heavily, that usually helps, but that wasn’t an option for me for obvious reasons. And I also have pretty bad back, which continued to get worse from being a nurse. It got to the point where the tremor prevented me from drawing blood, drawing up medications, feeding myself without embarrassment, and so forth and so on…”

Excerpt: “I took 9-10 pills in the morning and another handful like that every night. Since I’ve come here, I don’t take any of those pills in the morning. I do take some nighttime pills, but I don’t take mood stabilizers like I had to. I’ve been treated with medical cannabis four months, and it has made a huge change.

I came to Dr. Dorn, and it seemed like I already had known him. I think the the best thing is, if I had any questions at all, he would answer them…”

Excerpt: “With the medical cannabis and coming off of all the narcotics and opioids, I’m able to function as more so myself these days. My pulmonary function tests have changed drastically. My diffusion capacity went from 0.14% to about 85% within the last year, so we’re hoping to get me back to work within the next year depending on how this process goes…”

– PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), sleeping problems

I’m still working out some various formularies but I’ve been able to eliminate two medications so I can sleep at night. Still trying to get the day medications tossed out. Overall, medical marijuana has been a blessing because it’s helping me to eliminate poisonous drugs that are pushed on us without a full explanation of the side effects and adverse health consequences of taking them in the long term.

– Epilepsy, Neuropathy, Migraines, Anxiety

I can’t give enough positive feedback for people in my [medical cannabis] experience. I’m not being treated solely for epilepsy, I am being treated for multiple conditions, from neuropathy to migraines, anxiety, and many others. My anxiety and all have been controlled since I started using cannabis. I was confined to my house at times due to the anxiety being so high that I couldn’t go out and function with society. Now due to a vape pen I go out anytime with my service animal. I thank God and these people for the help. I ask that you don’t jump to judgement, for when there comes a time that nothing works on your body or your mind any more, can you turn somewhere else? Somewhere positive. That somewhere was here! Thank you thank you thank you! I cannot recommend the vape pens enough if you deal with extreme pain or extreme anxiety. I cannot recommend these people enough. Give them a chance. What a prayer answered, thank you Jesus! Thank you to Dr. Dorn and all the people that work and deliver. God bless you all!

– Seizures, migraines
– Previously treated with pharmaceuticals for the seizures

I am 63 years old and live in an apartment alone in rural Florida. I am unable to work because of migraines and seizures. I was on pharmaceuticals for the seizures and smoking marijuana. I noticed that the only time I had a seizure was when I had run out of the marijuana. So I am extremely happy to use the vape pens and pharmaceuticals and have had no seizures in almost 6 months. I started using them in October 2016. I also have only one migraine since then when I could sometimes have two per week. I just would like very much to be able to smoke it but Rick Scott code to omit that when he signed the bill.
I think cannabis should be legal for anyone 21 years of age.

– Chronic Pain, TMJ
– Previously treated with over the counter pain medication, opioids, traditional seizure/nerve pain medication

I have been self-employed as a freelance editor, proofreader, and translator (German/English) for many US publishers since Dec. 1985. I’ve been married for over 30 years, and my husband and I care for 10 cats and 2 dogs, all rescues and seniors, and most with special needs. We like to eat out and travel, and once I began to experience extreme, unending pain, we had to stop doing both. In Sept. 2016 I developed severe bilateral earaches. The stabbing, shooting, burning pain spread. My temples, around and under my eyes, my cheekbones, my mouth, my gums, my teeth, my jaw, in and behind my ears were affected.

I’d been diagnosed with TMJD, but the pain was far greater than that, moved all over my face, was bilateral. It felt as though ice picks were being shoved into my ears and as though knives were working themselves out from my gums. My cheekbones and the roof of my mouth were on fire. The pain traveled rapidly all over my face, in no particular order. Finally a neurologist at the Cleveland Clinic, Weston, FL, diagnosed me with atypical facial pain, a neurological condition that has no cure.

Previously, my dentist, oral surgeon, and PCP prescribed [over the counter pain medication and opioids] and a muscle relaxer; none even touched the pain. The neurologist prescribed [a traditional seizure/nerve pain medication], which didn’t help the pain and left me in a fog. I only slept a few hours, then excruciating pain woke me, and I was awake for the rest of the night. I could barely work and thought I’d have to give up my business. I couldn’t even take my dog for walks. I couldn’t drive.

I decided to give medical marijuana a chance since drugs didn’t work and only left me in a fog and staggering about. I saw Dr. Dorn, who was wonderfully understanding, knowledgeable, and sympathetic. As soon as I got my MM card, I went to a Surterra dispensary. The employees were SO knowledgeable, helpful, and caring, and they helped me find a type of tincture oil and vape pen (Calm) that they thought might be of most use. MM gave me back my life.

When I am in pain, I take 0.5 ml tincture oil (Dr. Dorn started me on 0.1 ml and suggested I work my way up until I found a dosage that worked; he suggested 12.0 ml as the most I should take per day, and I’ve never had to take that much) and two 3-second puffs of the vape pen. The latter works quickly, within 10-15 minutes, and the tincture oil normally keeps me pain-free for 4-7 hours or longer.

People worry about MM “getting them high” but it has never had that effect on me. I can do my work again–it requires lots of concentration–and perform activities of daily living without being in such agony that I can’t do anything. Because Surterra’s tincture oil is expensive ($260 per vial), I thought I’d try another dispensary, Trulieve. I purchased oil with the same ratio of CBD to THC (12.5:1) as the SurTerra oil for about $75. The employees weren’t knowledgeable or helpful, and I was unimpressed by them–and their oil did NOTHING for my pain, so I went back to Surterra immediately.

I am disgusted that MM is illegal in some states. I wish Congress had the guts to legalize it. Alcohol is an enormous danger; marijuana is not. To put marijuana in the same category of cocaine; to say it’s an “entry-level drug” is absurd. If it weren’t for Surterra products, I simply do not know what I would do. I know I wouldn’t be working, going out with my husband and friends, driving, leading a normal life. I carry my vape pen with me everywhere, in case I have breakthrough pain. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to MM for giving me back my life.

– RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome), sleeping problems

I have always had trouble sleeping for over maybe a hour or two with the RLS, and since I have been vaping at night before I go to bed, I sleep well now and wake up rested. Thank you very much for the help you have given me with my conditions.
