Thank you Lauraine Kanders, NP for being so professional, kind and lending your expertise. Much appreciated.
I cannot thank Lauraine Kanders, NP enough for helping me get certified. She was incredibly kind, sweet, informative and was able to answers. a I would absolutely recommend her to anyone that would benefit from medical marijuana.
Hey Lauraine, Just wanted to give you an update - I am doing fantastic. I have never felt so good and I’m in the process of stopping some medications because of the medical marijuana. I have tried literally all the products available and products from different dispensary’s. I have spent a few thousand dollars but it’s well worth the money. My favorite dispensary is CuraLeaf and now they have one in Carle Place. My regimen I am on is fantastic. I had to work through trial and error to determine what was best for me but I think I mastered it. I no longer take any benzodiazepines and most nights forget to take my Ambien (I have never missed a dose in about 10 years). Thank you for helping me achieve this goal. I am looking forward to our next consult.
Lauraine Kanders, NP helped me obtain my certificate very fast and responds even faster
What a great service. NP Kanders is clearly very experienced and an outstanding clinician.
Lauraine was the best! I didn't have to wait, she was extremely helpful and patient during some technical issues, and most importantly, I felt that she understood my condition and genuinely cared. I am very pleased with the treatment I received from her and I will definitely be using her again for my follow up visits!
Thanks, Lauraine! We had a great discussion about various options for dosing and timing and method of taking it. Very helpful!
Lauraine, I feel that I have had great success, Pain free since the end of june. Before starting medical marijuana I spent most of my time in bed and in pain ,Thank you for all your help, Joyce
Lauraine was polite, professional, and very informative about a topic I did not know much about previously (medical marijuana). Our appointment was quick and easy -- Lauraine was able to answer all of my questions in detail and also told me what I should be asking at my first visit to a dispensary. I have found significant relief thus far for my chronic back pain without any of the harsh side effects I was experiencing from other pain medicines. The whole process was much less burdensome and stressful than visiting a doctor's office. I highly recommend Medical Marijuana Recs NY!

After reading the excellent reviews about Lauraine Kanders, NP, and how helpful she was in navigating the process, I decided to call her regarding my mother's severe pain.

She is a wonderful, caring, knowledgeable professional and I highly recommend her.
Registration seemed complicated but Lauraine Kanders made the process easy. I completed the forms and New York State registration within one day with her assistance and email guidance. Thank you Lauraine!

This is my first time consulting with a marijuana specialist. Lauraine Kanders was very helpful and compassionate. She took time to answer all my questions and since I am not good with a computer she helped me to fill out the necessary forms. Lauraine was kind and professional and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Lauraine Kanders to anyone who is seeking professional advice from a marijuana specialist. I give her five stars.
I started doing research maybe a week before deciding. I was wondering if there could be fake sites or dishonest people. The first Initial contact I received I knew I made the right choice. Very patience , knowledgable, and understanding. I was lost and wasn't sure if the program was a right fit for my medical needs. I was explained various different things that made me feel at ease. I am pleased and thankful.
Working with Laurie to renew my card was pretty easy. The online component was so much better than an in office visit.
