Medical Marijuana   

With medical marijuana now being legal in NY, it is important for you as patients to learn about cannabis and make responsible and informed consumer choices about the newly approved product.  Medical marijuana therapy is proven to safely alleviate pain and suffering without having psychogenic side effects with the proper medical supervision. 

Dr. Bernie Lee, an expert in Medical Marijuana, was one of the first specialists to become certified by the New York State Department of Health to certify and treat qualified patients with Medical Marijuana therapy.  Dr. Lee has close working relationships with local Medical Marijuana Dispensaries to ensure a strong, collaborative nature that will maximize efficacious and safe treatment plans for each individual patient. 

Dr. Bernie Lee talked about Medical Marijuana on Cannabis Internet Radio Show called "In the Know 420" on January 27, 2017. Click here to listen and find out more about Medical Marijuana.
