Only a trained physician may perform a confidential evaluation to determine if your medical condition qualifies under the Arizona Medical Marijuana Program, and if medicinal cannabis would be an effective form of treatment. This process begins with a visit to our office, where if you qualify, our doctor will make a recommendation for a medical marijuana card, and our staff will walk you through all the paperwork required by the state of Arizona for you to receive your card quickly. The Green Cross Patient Center was created with one simple goal in mind: to take the hassle and confusion of becoming part of the patient registry, so that patients can put their focus where it should be, on their health & wellness.
We will direct you in completing all the necessary steps to obtain your Arizona Medical Marijuana ID card, and file all documents with the State of Arizona Department of Health for you at no additional cost. We are happy to provide this service, because we care about people.
Schedule an Appointment
We understand that your specific medical condition may add difficulty in a number of ways. For your convenience, we will work with you in whatever way works best. You can set your own appointment online if that is most comfortable, or by phone, and if you you can stop by if you prefer to communicate in person. Our qualified staff will answer any questions you may have about the Arizona Medical Marijuana Program or the certification process. We’re here to help.
The Arizona Medical Marijuana Program requires current (within the past year) and verifiable medical records for your condition(s). You may contact your doctor’s office at any time before your appointment. When you contact your doctor, please make sure that you request only the documented records of your condition(s), not your entire medical history. If you have any questions about requesting your medical records from your doctor we will be happy to help.
Your visit will begin with an introduction to our patient services coordinator, and standard medical history forms will be completed. If you have questions or need help with this part of the visit, we will be there to assist you. Once all necessary forms have been completed, we will sit down and review with you and answer any questions you may have before your exam. Next we will make copies of your medical records and valid state identification.
A physician that specializes in Medical Cannabis will speak to you in detail about your medical condition that may qualify you for the Arizona Medical Marijuana Program, and then perform a non-invasive examination (no needles, we promise). By law, our physicians must only discuss your qualification for the program and not other medical conditions. After the exam, our doctor will review all information in order to determine eligibility status and if medicinal cannabis would be an effective form of treatment. After review, you will receive a signed Physician Certification Form if approved as a qualified patient. It’s that simple.
Apply to the AZ Department of Health Services
Before leaving the clinic the day of your appointment, we will make sure that all information has been collected that will allow you to apply to the state for your Medical Marijuana Identification Card. We will submit your application for you along with all necessary document copies required.
