The answer to chronic health problems and symptoms that disrupt daily living activities isn’t the same for everyone. For some patients, opioid and NSAID medications work well to alleviate chronic pain with few or tolerable side-effects. For other patients, the side-effects of pharmaceutical therapies can be worse than the condition itself. An online telemedicine health evaluation can be the first step to taking a more natural pain management approach.
At Osler Medical Group at Heights Medical, we care for patients with a variety of unique health problems. Some patients have difficulties with immune system functioning and chronic inflammation. Others may have diagnosed chronic disease and persistent pain. Our medical team will help build a treatment plan with medical cannabis to help you get your life back.
Patients receive health evaluations and treatment advice from Dr. Thomas Bellavia MD, DABFP, Dr. Fabio Piazza, and Dr. Amit Tailor. Learn more about our practitioners on our website.
What Are the Qualifying Health Conditions for an MMJ Card in New Jersey?
Regulations in New Jersey require that anyone who wants to get a medical cannabis card needs to have one or more diagnoses approved by the state. To participate in the New Jersey medical marijuana program, your first step is to make sure you have at least one qualifying health condition.
The New Jersey Medicinal Marijuana Program (NJMMP) has provided a list of health conditions that can make you eligible to become an MMJ cardholder. Some of the health conditions, symptoms, and diagnoses include:
Muscle spasms and seizure disorders may also qualify a patient for the NJMMP. Learn more about all the health conditions that may make you eligible to apply for your New Jersey medical marijuana card.
What Information Do I Need to Gather for My NJ Cannabis Card Health Evaluation?
Some people can feel a little apprehensive about getting a medical evaluation. But the New Jersey Medicinal Marijuana Program (NJMMP) is designed to help patients that are not getting the relief they need from pharmaceutical treatments. It is a compassionate care program because the State of New Jersey understands that life with debilitating health conditions (when alternative medicine can provide relief) is not an option. Your quality of life matters.
Before you schedule your telemedicine medical marijuana health evaluation with Osler Medical Group in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, you will need to have:
Please note that our physician can schedule an appointment with you via telemedicine, no matter where you are located in New Jersey. You do not have to be local to Hasbrouck Heights to schedule your appointment for a medical marijuana card health check.
The physician will certify your diagnosis for the State of New Jersey as an essential step required to become a registered patient in the NJ medical marijuana program.
What Can I Expect During the Telemedicine Cannabis Health Evaluation?
During your health evaluation with Osler Medical Group at Heights Medical, in Morristown, New Jersey, your health history will be reviewed. You will be asked questions about your current symptoms. If your primary qualifying health condition is chronic pain related, you may be asked to complete a pain inventory. It is a short survey to help our physician determine the level of intensity and frequency of your symptoms.
If you are a patient that has mobility or transportation challenges, you can designate a caregiver to assist you. This can be a spouse, partner, or family member who can purchase or pick-up medical cannabis products for you. New Jersey has legalized product deliveries to registered patients. However, if you live far from a dispensary, a designated caregiver may be a solution for you.
