From the moment you step into Lakewood Medical Clinic, you can rest assured that our staff is there to guide you and support your choice to consider medical marijuana. After you schedule an appointment, your medical records will be populated into our system so we can spend your entire visit focusing on answering questions and determining how medical cannabis may benefit you.
Lakewood Medical Clinic staff will present options for medical marijuana treatment based on your medical history, current condition, and most troublesome symptoms. We will help you navigate starting doses and methods of administration – whether that is inhalation, edibles, tinctures, topical creams, or combination therapy. Our staff will also help you anticipate your reaction to cannabis and prepare you for any positive or negative side effects.
At the end of your visit, if we believe that medical marijuana can be helpful to you, you will receive a recommendation that you can present to an Ohio licensed dispensary.
Walk-in appointments are available. Patients will need to bring copies of their medical records. Patients with their medical records that walk-in without a scheduled appointment will be seen as soon as their medical information is entered into the system, and a physician is available.Medical Records Release Authorization Form
Ohio medical marijuana laws allow for a 90-day supply of cannabis at a time. Every six months, you will need to return for evaluation.
At follow-up appointments, you will review the last three months of therapy with your doctor, who can then make adjustments to your cannabis dosage and/or mode of administration. We encourage you to log your reaction to marijuana therapy between appointments so we can accurately optimize your treatment. Your response to treatment will be documented in your electronic medical record (EMR) and – with your consent – will be shared with your other treatment providers to optimally coordinate your care.
