I was changing Doctors and the Green Alternative Doctor, made the process very easy. I downloaded the paperwork ahead of time as they recommended and was able to go to the Dispensary that same day after processing all the paperwork and seeing the Doctor. I highly recommend The Green Alternative Doctor.

Everyone was super helpful from start to finish! I was so nervous when I started the process, until they really gave me that feeling of "everything's right, so just hold tight". I'm so glad that I listened to my friend and switched to the Green Alternative. The free education and classes are the icing on the cake.

The doctor is active military and gives discounts to Vets, seniors, and anyone on government assistance. They know how costly the program can be for patients because everyone in the office has an mmp card...They're a wealth of knowledge on how to save money and still get the relief I need from my anxiety and PTSD. I highly recommend this office, I'm so happy with my choice to come to the Green Alternative Doctor.
