Patients are required to set an appointment for a medical evaluation with Dr. Mikhail Artamonov, who is a State certified medical cannabis assessor. During your appointment.

This has been one of the best medical experiences i have had in being treated by a physician. I have suffered with herniated/bulging discs that cause chronic pain to the point I couldn’t even sleep. I first saw Dr A for stem cell treatments years ago and since that was a great experience and I found out he was an expert in cannabis I scheduled an appt and he and the staff explained everything to me and assisted with the whole process. After I obtained my cannabis evaluation and used my medical marijuana I was finally able to sleep through the night more than 5 hours at a time. It made me a believer after years of hesitation. What a relief! Anyone I know who has pain issues I recommend going to see Dr Artamonov. He is that good! Thank you so much!
