The initial evaluation takes about 30 minutes where we will review your medical records and discuss the various options available to you.  The visit with all required paperwork for the card is $200 for a one year card and prescription.

If you require any additional help during the year, there is no charge.

We are happy to offer both in-office visits AND telemedicine for your convenience.  If you have any questions, please email or call us.
