Medical Marijuana Evaluations Q & A

What are medical marijuana evaluations?

Medical marijuana uses cannabis to provide therapeutic benefits for various conditions. In Florida, patients must meet specific criteria to be eligible for medical marijuana. Only physicians registered with the Florida Department of Health's Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU) can perform evaluations for medical marijuana.


The team at Vivant Medical Group holds the qualifications and training certifications to perform comprehensive evaluations for patients seeking medical marijuana cards.

What conditions can medical marijuana evaluations address?


Qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in Florida include:


  • Crohn’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Chronic pain
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Glaucoma
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Cancer
  • Terminal illnesses
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)


After a thorough medical exam, the providers at Vivant Medical Group can determine whether your condition qualifies for medical marijuana.

What information should I bring to medical marijuana evaluations?


Bringing the appropriate information to your medical evaluation can ensure an efficient visit with the team at Vivant Medical Group. Before your visit, make sure to gather the following:


  • Recent health history summary from your family physician
  • Most recent lab or diagnostic reports
  • Any information regarding your condition
  • A completed application for submission, if deemed necessary for the state
  • Cash or debit (no insurance for this service)

What can I expect from medical marijuana evaluations?


A medical marijuana evaluation is similar to a routine visit. When you arrive, the team checks your height, weight, and vitals (temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and respiration rate). Next, they review your medical history and ask questions about your health. They also gather information about your family’s health history.


Your provider performs a physical exam to assess your condition. If they determine that you meet the criteria for medical marijuana, they can fill out the necessary paperwork.

What happens after my medical marijuana evaluation?


After you receive your medical marijuana paperwork, you can apply for a Medical Marijuana Use Registry Identification Card through the Florida Department of Health. Once you receive your card, you may visit a Medical Marijuana Treatment Center (MMTC) in your area.
