Missouri Medical Marijuana

Missouri Medical Marijuana

Welcome to Bloom La Vie Health’s La Fleur Health Package!

We will be establishing a physician-patient relationship to determine if a recommendation for the safe and therapeutic use of medical cannabis/marijuana can be made. The physician will determine the appropriate recommendation based on your medical history and does not guarantee that a recommendation for a medical card certification will be made. There are no refunds for the consultation.

Here at Bloom La Vie Health, our pricing system is very straightforward – just like it should be. We cut out the insurance middle-man, so we could focus on providing care. If you have questions, simply ask. We’re happy to walk you through anything. In the meantime, take a look at our Membership Fees, browse our Frequently Asked Questions, or sign up for a free consultation with Dr. Nedeau to see if we are a good fit for your needs.

No diagnosis or treatment of any kind will be evaluated during this visit.
