What is the Center for Medical Cannabis Education?
We are licensed healthcare providers who specialize in using cannabinoids from cannabis and hemp (e.g., THC, CBD, etc.) to treat human illness and disease. We do not sell or dispense any cannabis products. We provide highly-specialized medical care to patients interested in using cannabinoids for medical purposes. A consult with us is like a normal visit with your doctor. At the end of the consult you will receive a detailed treatment plan with instructions on what products to purchase, where to purchase them and exactly how to use them. We offer both telephone and in-office consults.
What types of patients do you see?
We see all types of patients! Most of our patients are seeking relief from pain, anxiety, sleep disorders, PTSD, seizure disorders, cancer or other symptoms and medical conditions. If cannabinoids are an appropriate therapy, we will recommend specific products and provide instructions on how to use them. Prospective patients can schedule a free, 5-minute telephone consult with Dr. Corroon if they want to understand if cannabinoids may be a safe and effective therapy for them.
Our patients are not looking to get high!
Will my insurance cover this?
Unfortunately, we cannot accept health insurance, but all of our consults can be deducted through a Health Savings Account or Family Savings Account. In addition, we can provide a "superbill" for you to submit a receipt to your insurance company. We can work with you to develop a monthly payment plan. We are committed to doing what works best for you.
How is my treatment and care plan designed?
We start with a detailed questionnaire and comprehensive consultation to understand your current health status and goals. This step is a critical part of our process. After we receive this information, we will design a personalized treatment plan that will best support you. You will receive the treatment plan as an email. It will include exactly which products to purchase, where to purchase them and how to use them. If desired, we will work directly with your primary care, or other doctor, to ensure there are no gaps in your care.
What are the costs of your consults?
The overall cost of your care will vary depending on the number of consults required. Straight-forward cases are typically addressed in one to two consults. We offer both telephone and in-office consults. Initial consults range from $225 to $275. Follow-up consults range from $75 to $150. We offer a discount to individuals over 65 years of age and active duty military and veterans. More information on our fees can be found on our consult page.
