Though Rockville Centre is a small village, you still deserve access to high-grade medical marijuana to treat painful symptoms. Times are changing, and cannabis is now legal in New York for patients with qualifying conditions. The process may be confusing, so here are some tips if you’re seeking out a physician to certify you for medical marijuana use.

Which Conditions Qualify?

As laid out by the Compassionate Care Act, not everybody can get a medical marijuana card — they’re for patients who meet the law’s strict requirements. Your medical records must show that you have one of the following conditions:

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Cancer
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Neuropathy
  • AIDs or HIV
  • Chronic and severe pain, nausea, seizures or muscle spasms

Meet with a Medical Practitioner

The first step to obtaining your medical marijuana card is to meet with a certifying medical practitioner. This can be difficult as not all doctors in New York are registered with the state to provide this service. If your primary care physician isn’t registered, you’ll need to find a doctor who is.

At your medical appointment, the physician will need the following documentation:

  • Proof of residency showing that you’re a New York resident
  • Medical records that verify your condition

If everything checks out, you could have your Department of Health certification that day. The next step is simply to apply for your MMJ card online with the DOH.

Rockville Centre Doctors

Because of its size, it may be difficult to find certifying physicians in Rockville Centre. However, there are choices available. You can also expand your search to all of Nassau County and nearby New York City for even more options. Be sure to check out our Find A Doctor tab for a list of physicians within five miles of your town.

The Department of Health lists all registered medical practitioners on their website if they have given permission to be viewed publicly.

For patients preferring not to travel to a doctor’s office, there’s a convenient option. More and more doctors are now offering telemedicine appointments. Discuss your condition and receive your medical marijuana certification without having to leave your home. Secure online video chats ensure these meetings remain strictly confidential.
