SEE AN OMNI CERTIFIED PHYSICIAN
The first step to become a medical marijuana patient is to establish and maintain a bona fide physician-patient relationship with a certified physician.
- An in-person visit with a certified physician is required at least once per year.
- Certified physicians have access to the Patient Registry and will submit their recommendations for a patient to receive medical marijuana directly to the Patient Registry.
- The physician will need the patient’s valid Ohio driver’s license, a valid Ohio identification card issued by the Ohio bureau of motor vehicles (BMV), or a valid United States passport.
- A registered caregiver may possess and administer medical marijuana to patients with whom the caregiver’s registration is associated. The certified physician will need similar identification from a caregiver to establish their profile in the Patient Registry.
- A certified physician can recommend up to a 90-day supply of medical marijuana with three refills (totaling up to 360-day supply if appropriate for the patient).
- The compassionate physicians of Omni Medical Services have a desire to recommend medical marijuana in Ohio and have an active Certificate to Recommend (CTR) from the State Medical Board of Ohio. If your current physician does not have an active CTR, you can find a certified physician here in Ohio at an Omni location near you!
