Naples Medical Marijuana Doctors – Emerald Medical Center

Getting a medical marijuana card in Florida – specifically, Naples – is easier than you might think. After you establish a relationship with a medical majijuana doctor at Emerald Medical Center, their staff can help on your journey to relief. 

Dr. Robert Brueck founded Emerald Medical Center in 2017, following a personal transformation.  He was accustomed to prescribing over-the-counter drugs to patients suffering from chronic pain, emotional distress, etc., and had the best of intentions, but he always ran into the problem of certain medications clashing with others. 

Intrigued by the up-and-coming concept of medical marijuana, combined with a need in Naples, Florida, he did his own research on the subject.  After studying the subject diligently, he discovered that medical cannabis was a safe and highly evolved method of treatment for the qualifying conditions his patients were suffering from.

Medical cannabis is legal in the state of Florida to those with qualifying medical conditions. 

These conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Pain (Nonmalignant)
  • Crohn’s Diseases
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s Diseases
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

To prove that you have a condition, you will be asked to provide documentation during your consultation with a physician at Emerald Medical Center

If you do not see your condition listed above, you may still qualify for one of the “other debilitating conditions of like, kind, or class” to be determined by one of Emerald Medical Center’s doctors.
