Patients And Doctors Should Both Share The Same Treatment Plan

With medical cannabis practiced the way it is generally practiced, there is no way for both the physician and patient to have any idea of what the patient is really taking.

This might not matter for many casual users, but it matters a whole lot when you are sick and the cannabis is either not helping or helping some. Either way, the physician and patient are looking for a better solution. How is it possible for the physician to make the best recommendation possible if he/she does not know what the patient is taking.

I believe we will be seeing (for sure) Cannabis Treatment Plans. They will be just like the old treatment plans I have used for 35 years practicing Internal Medicine.

They will include warnings and specific instructions. As there has been some debate as to whether physicians recommending cannabis can give the patient a treatment plan, I will soon be able to post both a typical treatment plan as well as legal sign off.

This is all  very exciting, as all physicians will consider using dosed cannabis when appropriate

Allan Frankel, MD Dr Allan Frankel is one of the few physicians in the US who truly understands Cannabis as a medicine. All treatments suggested have been well studied. Every patient seen by Dr Frankel is given a personally created Treatment Plan created with the patient's specific issues defined. Plant medicine requires "tuning" of the dosing. Dr Frankel works with his patients thru a messaging portal. The use of this portal, allows quick and simple follow up contact with Dr Frankel. Patients are not charged for these messages, as this is how Dr Frankel has learned what he has learned. Follow up appointments in person or by phone/video are also available when needed
