Hybrid MD Urgent Care physicians have come together to provide our patients another line of service, Medical Marijuana Recommendation Certificate. Some of our patients have tried multiple prescriptions for their recurring ailments. While some obtained a positive outcome, many were left with the same pre-treatment conditions. Pharmaceutical Medications may provide some relief, however, these prescription drugs also come with their own side effects. For those who choose to stop relying on prescription drugs, medical marijuana or cannabis is an alternative medicine that could potentially help, resolving some of the ailments.
