Procedure Overview

Step 1:
Submit Medical Records

Request or gather your medical records, reports, prescriptions that are proof of your diagnosis consistent with the need for medical marijuana. You may download our Medical Release Form to request medical records from your doctor.

Once our office receives your medical records, we will contact you to schedule your initial visit with Dr. Wong.

Step 2:
Visit Our Office

On your initial appointment, Dr. Wong will discuss your medical history, current medications, and perform a physical examination. You can download and complete our New Patient Registration Form ahead of time. 

If you are qualified, your information will be registered into the Compassionate Use Registry.

Step 3:
Apply for Registry Card

Using your patient registry number, you will need to complete the Registry Card Application online. Patients will need to upload a passport quality photo, proof of FL residency (License or Utility Bill), and mail a check payable to the Department of Health for $75. If the application is done online correctly, the patient will receive a temporary ID Card via email and can purchase their medication while waiting on the card to be mailed.

Step 4:
Receive Your Recommendation 

On your followup visit, Dr. Wong will give you your recommendation to get started with medical marijuana.

You can then bring your recommendation and registry card to the dispensary of your choice.
