We are excited to announce that we have expanded our Telehealth service to the state of New York. Any person wishing to qualify for the medical cannabis program in New York can now do so easily and efficiently using the HelloMD live video platform from the comfort of their home or office.
Along with California and Nevada, New York allows for qualifying Telehealth consultations between patients and doctors, for medical cannabis. Telehealth is particularly important for medical cannabis consultations because it allows for private consultations where:
-\tPatients feels stigmatized by the choice to investigate medical cannabis -\tThe primary GP or doctor does not feel comfortable with cannabis -\tPeople are too sick to travel to see a doctor EG: undergoing chemo
Additionally, New York has recently expanded the list of qualifying conditions to include (among others) chronic pain. This category is important as its broadly defined as any pain lasting longer than 12 weeks, and can include very common conditions such as migraines, back pain, fibromyalgia, sciatica, arthritis and others (all of which cannabis has shown to be an effective treatment for).
Having launched in New York, we need the assistance of HelloMD members to help spread the awareness of the service to friends they have in New York. If you have friends in New York you feel might benefit from the use of medical cannabis, please have them visit HelloMD and see a doctor or nurse today. The process takes about an hour to complete, and doctors are available 7-days per week.
