user-icon Bio

This medical office is currently open and seeing patients amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Please call the office directly if you have any questions during this time.

Hillsborough County Compassionate Care is a compassionate medical facility that now offers comprehensive evaluations for medical marijuana treatment. With their holistic approach, the doctor will work with the patient to develop a targeted treatment plan tailored to lifestyle of the patient and their qualifying condition. During the evaluation, the doctor will discuss with the patient previous treatment methods used and the benefits, as well as any risks, that may come along with using medical cannabis. The attending clinician will use their medical expertise and judgement to determine whether or not the patient will benefit from obtaining a medical marijuana card. The doctor and staff will then develop a plan that includes any necessary follow-up visits, ensuring each patient maintains their legal cardholder status as dictated by the Florida Medical Marijuana Program. Evaluations are conducted on a by-appointment basis, so book an appointment today!

The $50 booking fee is for the first evaluation. Patients who qualify for the program will have their booking fee applied toward the annual fee of $450. The annual fee covers all office visits for one year.

This office offers a $50 discount for ALL VETERANS and all patients that make one annual payment. They also provide payment plans for convenience; please call for details.

Hillsborough County Compassionate Care is based out of Tampa, FL but hopes to serve all patients who are located in the immediate area, not just those that reside in Tampa. Those with questions about the process of obtaining a medical marijuana card are encouraged to call the office directly or to book an appointment online to learn more. Medicinal cannabis has proven to be beneficial for many residents throughout the states. Now patients located in Florida can pursue this alternative treatment method with the assistance of Hillsborough County Compassionate Care. Patients who are currently on a standard treatment plan or have exhausted all current available treatment options, may find Medical Cannabis a more effective treatment option.

The office staff (Tony and Sara) are excellent and Dr. Candelora was quite knowledgeable. The entire process went seamlessly and I cannot wait to start using my new prescription. Thank you HC Compassionate Care for making this experience a pleasant one and for giving me hope for a life without constant pain.

Dr. Candelora and his team were extremely professional and genuinely concerned about my medical needs. He took the time to fully understand what my illnesses were and discussed all my options available. There was zero wait time. It was a very quick, painless, streamlined process. Everything happened just the way they said it would. I am sitting on my couch pain free for the first time in years thanks to him and his team! Thank you Dr. Candelora and Miss Sarah! I truly do appreciate you!

Dr. Candelora has an incredible bedside manner. He is easy to talk to, he has great listening skills and takes his time to work with you to find the best solution for your pain issues. I have been a patient of Dr. Candelora's since May of 2017 and have been blown away by his patience. I never feel as though I'm just another "numbered" patient. I have every confidence in him. So, if you're looking for a Marijuana Pain Specialist, you can't go wrong with this man!
