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.
