Dr. Frankel recommends the use of consistent measured dosage medical cannabis products delivered in a medical form as an alternative and complementary therapy.
His patients either seek him out or are referred to him by their physicians when they do not achieve relief from or cannot tolerate the side effects of traditional therapies.
In addition, he receives patient referrals from the department heads of major medical centers and leading physicians in the fields of psychiatry and neurology.
Initial consultations are one hour and include a comprehensive examination, review and discussion of prior medical history and records, education on medical cannabis as an alternative and complementary therapy. At the end of the consultation, patients are given a detailed treatment plan specifying specific medications and dosages to treat their condition. To ensure patients have answers to any questions following their consultation, we include follow up messaging with the doctor. We also provide patients with an insurance “superbill” for submission to their health insurance carrier. Most insurance plans provide 50% to 80% reimbursement of the cost of the consultation.
