user-icon Bio

Butterfly Wellness is a compassionate medical facility that now provides comprehensive evaluations for medical marijuana treatment to patients diagnosed with a qualifying condition in Florida. Patients will be seen by Margaret I. Thirston, M.D., a board-certified physician who has been serving patients for over 15 years! During the evaluation, Dr. Thirston will perform a thorough review of each patient's medical history, and speak with the patient about the treatment methods they've tried in the past. Based on the information learned during the evaluation, and using her medical expertise and judgment, Dr. Thirston will decide whether or not the patient will receive therapeutic benefits from medical marijuana treatment. If so, she will issue a recommendation for treatment and register the patient with Florida's Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU).
