Friendly knowledgeable from the first phone call. Very informative appointment. Everyone makes you feel confident with the information given.
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.
Any fears I had were immediately put to rest when I submitted my information and received an immediate response to each of my questions. Dr Fortino and his staff operated compassionately throughout the process. This is the place to get your MMP card, I recommend them to anyone that is interested in getting their card.
The staff here is so helpful. They booked my appointment right away and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. Dr. Fortino really educated me on how to use marijuana to help my migraines. What a great experience.
Fantastic Staff, very helpful and easy to work with. Dr. Fortino is top notch, I have already recommended this practice to several others.
STAFF WAS VERY INFORMATIVE AND MADE SURE I WAS PREPARED FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT. THEY EVEN HELPED ME TO REGISTER FOR MY CARD!
