Here's our philosophy...

People suffer with chronic illness and pain due to a variety of dis-eases in the body. Causes can be from the environment or from lifestyle choices, genetics or just unknown. The  traditional scientific tested treatments of modern medicine have many benefits with often great efficacy, but sometimes come with serious, potentially dangerous side effects.  

What was once thought of as safe and non-addictive pain management (opioids) in the late 1990s, became a public health epidemic and emergency by the mid 21st century with more than 42,000 deaths from opioid overdoses and misuse in 2016, more than any previous year on record. (HHS.GOV/OPIODS 2020)

My research on the benefits and overall positive effects of medical marijuana to help alleviate pain with no serious side effects, (short term euphoria and increased appetite with THC use) has helped me see that this alternative, ancient plant can and should be highly considered when seeking physical and emotional help.

Our philosophy here at Medical Marijuana of Melbourne, is to be a part of our patients achieving the health goals they deserve and desire and to have compassionate, educational discussions on the benefits of medical marijuana ... always keeping in mind  first, 

"How can we best help you"

I had a great experience with Dr. Nielsen and Christine.  When I reached out, Christine was very informative and kind.  During my visit, Dr. Nielsen was engaged and we had genuine conversation about my care and best options for treatment.  I highly recommend their practice!
