Welcome oph215
​oph215 has been in existence since January 1, 2012. Originally this practice was built as a primary care practice to reach out to people with no health insurance coverage and to serve a a primary care outreach to people confined to their homes who had a hard time making it to a doctors office. The abbreviation oph stands for Osteopathic Physician Housecalls.

Three years earlier I became convinced medical cannabis was a useful treatment modality for many people and incorporated medical cannabis evaluations into my primary care outreach and to others seeking medical cannabis consultations who were not my primary care service.

I am trained in Internal medicine, two years at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix Arizona, and Family Practice, One year at Pacific Hospital of Long Beech in Long Beech California. In addition I did four years of graduate studies and research at Oregon State university.

I retired from primary care at the end of March 2016 and my work today revolves mostly around providing medical cannabis evaluations for people with significant medical problems. I especially enjoy working with people with significant, functional disabilities and older people with functional disabilities. I apply the 25 years of primary care experience to my medical cannabis consultation work. If I am unable to complete a medical cannabis consultation in one sitting or if a patient has questions or is experiences adverse effects from medical cannabis I follow-up with the patient at no charge.

At this point I care for three types of medical cannabis patients:

1) New medical cannabis consultation patients. 

2) Medical cannabis renewal patients who continue to have uncontrolled issues.

3) Medical cannabis renewal patients who are well controlled on their current use of medical cannabis and have no current questions.

Renewals are $75.00
New Patient Visits are $85.00
