THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA CERTIFICATION PROCESS

After reviewing a patient’s medical history, Dr. Folgueras speaks with the patient about the treatment methods they’ve used in the past for their condition. Using her medical judgment and expertise, she then determines whether the patient will experience therapeutic benefits from incorporating medical marijuana into their individualized treatment plan.

All patients approved for treatment by Dr. Folgueras will be registered with Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Program.

    I am beyond thankful for Heather and Dr. Folgueras! They have changed my life. I have struggled with anxiety for YEARS. The medication I was prescribed caused negative side effects, including significant weight gain. After doing some research and talking with Heather, I decided to pursue medical marijuana. Dr. Folgueras explained everything thoroughly during our consult, was patient and compassionate. The process was smooth. I am happy to say after 6 months I am officially off my medication (which was 100mg) and only take .25mL of a tincture at night. I am not groggy during the day and my anxiety is well-controlled. I would highly recommend this program for your certification. All staff are knowledgeable and genuinely care about your well-being.

      Hello Francesca! This is so fantastic to hear. We’re so glad Dr. Folgueras was able to help you obtain your MMJ card. She’s truly a wonderful and caring physician. And even more exciting is that you were able to get off of your other medications! Thanks again for your review. ~ Heather
