As one of the only physician-led medical cannabis companies in the United States, Vireo Health of New York uniquely values collaboration with physicians and other healthcare professionals. Given the fact that the vast majority of healthcare professionals have no experience with cannabis in a medical setting we have chosen to dedicate a significant amount of resources to education. Our medical team regularly meets with healthcare professionals to increase their awareness about the benefits of medical-cannabis and to offer themselves as expert resources that can be relied upon for future consultation. If you are a healthcare professional interested in exploring the possibility of recommending medical cannabis to your patients with the appropriate qualifying conditions and have some questions you would like to discuss with one of our experts, please feel free to contact us for a consultation.
