For New and Prospective Patients
Who are the patients at The Dispensary?
At The Dispensary, our patients are the foundation of our service and the community. They are our neighbors, our friends, and those in need of assistance in some cases to cope with the debilitating conditions they endure and face daily. Compassion, understanding, and their comfort are our primary goals. At The Dispensary, we strive to assist however we may beyond the simple purchase of their required medication, and to further the harmonious balance between the communities and the patients we assist.

We often hear many new patients are also looking for participating physicians. To address these concerns, we have assembled a list of participating physicians throughout the state.

For Existing Patients
The Dispensary prides itself on patient satisfaction and making your experiences with medical cannabis and your everyday ailments the best they can possibly be. We understand the need for private conversations and consultations to discuss medical cannabis, specific ailments, treatment options, proper usage, and any other topics required by the patient. With that, we’ve set up an option for patients and caregivers to schedule a private patient consultation.
All patient consultations will be led by an employee-patient who can directly speak to the benefits of specific medical products and how they may work for you. Consultations will take place in a private room directly adjacent to the sales floor with a large conference table and multimedia capabilities. To schedule a private consultation, please visit our patient consultation page for more information and fill in the requested information to get your appointment scheduled today. Walk in consultations are accepted as available, but to best serve you, advanced scheduling is recommended.
