MariCare Wellness specializes in treating their patients physical, mental and emotional wellness. From pediatric patients to the elderly, they take a holistic approach to a persons health issue and focus on finding and treating the root cause, rather than simply alleviating their patients symptoms. Their team has years of experience helping people and their families suffering from chronic medical conditions and they view cannabis as a safe, natural and often more effective treatment option then traditional prescriptions, when used with the guidance of an experienced medical professional. Several of MariCare Wellness' Providers are registered with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission and are able to certify patients, ensuring patients can be seen by the practitioner who's experience best matches their condition. In order to ensure the best possible experience for patients they offer visits either in person at their Bowie MD office or online via a secured telemedicine portal.

Mrs. Toussaint was professional, caring, funny, and very thorough. I was given an appointment the next day and Mrs. Toussaint went over anything and everything I could possibly want to know, as well as answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend MariCare to anyone seeking a new doctor or if you are looking for a caring, professional and amazing group of health care professionals to support you!

Outstanding office with welcoming staff. Very pleasant environment and the appointment with Melinda Toussaint was very informative from how I will be able to have options for my conditions, MMMC compliance and dispensary process. The dedication, professionalism and progress of medical marijuana and the uplifting of Maryland is almost just too beautiful. I truly do thank the staff of MariCare and all individuals who make this possible. Thank you.

June 14, 2018, I met with Melinda Toussaint. The meeting was very informative and I was able to complete the application. Mrs. Toussaint explained the process and encouraged me to call if I needed additional information. She was very patient because I was nervous. Not knowing what to expect. Yesterday, June 26, I received my certificate number which I will let Ms Toussaint know. I am anxious to see ifI will get relief of my chronic pain so that I can get back to my old self.
