How do you get started? Just follow the simple steps listed below.

Step 1: Schedule Your Appointment

The process of obtaining cannabis to treat your medical condition begins by scheduling a personal medical evaluation with Dr. Brown. This initial visit is performed in-person at our St. Petersburg location.

Step 2: Get Evaluated by Our Doctor

To obtain medical marijuana in Florida, you must receive a recommendation from a state-approved physician. During your initial consultation, Dr. Brown will assess your condition and symptoms and determine whether or not medical cannabis is an appropriate treatment for your specific needs.

Your disease or condition must have a prior diagnosis before Dr. Brown can recommend treatment with medical cannabis. It is helpful to bring copies of your medical records and diagnosis to your initial evaluation, but it is not necessary. Our staff can work with your health care provider to obtain any necessary and relevant documentation.

Step 3: Receive Your Medical Marijuana Card by Mail

Once you have been entered into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry, your medical marijuana card will be sent to you in the mail. While you must be registered in the database in order to purchase cannabis from a dispensary, you do not need to have your medical marijuana card on hand. You will simply need your state ID; your dispensary can confirm your registration status online for you.

Step 4: Maintain Ongoing Care

Medical marijuana eligibility must be renewed quarterly, according to Florida law. Online check-ins must be conducted every 90 days in order to maintain your recommendations.


The following prices apply:

  • Initial Evaluation: $225
  • Quarterly follow-up: $150
