Dr. Jason Schultz Medical Marijuana Doctor

Jason D. Schultz, M.D.

Licensed in the State of Florida

When I began practicing medicine, there was a lot of pressure to give narcotics no matter what. As I went through my medical career it got worse and worse. Now I have the opportunity to help patients with a natural form of medicine that produces better results. As a physician, it was easy to become an advocate.

Dr Beyer CannaMD

Joey L. Beyer, M.D.

Licensed in the State of Florida

As a physician, I have the unique privilege of helping patients understand their condition and create a plan to improve their health. Hearing patients tell me how they are able to use medical cannabis to go back to their normal life and no longer experience the side effects of various prescription drugs is rewarding.

Dr Mark Vacker CannaMD

Mark A. Vacker, M.D.

Licensed in the State of Florida

The use of medical marijuana is all about giving people hope and options in healthcare. Treatment with medical marijuana also takes into consideration a person’s physical state, nutritional status, psychological attitude, and spiritual beliefs. The “whole person” is cared for, not an isolated body part or disease.

Jonathan Quinonez MMJ Doctor

Jonathan Quinonez, D.O.

Licensed in the State of Florida

I’m passionate about medical cannabis research and advancing this important field of study – which is what attracted me to CannaMD. I look forward to participating in studies and helping patients by providing education, empathy, and evidence-based medical marijuana recommendations.
