OUR TREATMENT FOCUS
Summertree Medical Clinic holds a unique position in the management of chronic pain as the only medical cannabinoid clinic in Canada helmed by a rheumatologist. Our primary focus is the care of patients struggling with chronic pain due to joint and nerve damage. Those struggling with pain, disability, disrupted sleep, insomnia, and fatigue are typical patients seen at the clinic. Arthritis, soft tissue, and nerve pain respond well to cannabinoid therapy. Consultations for the ACMPR program are free of charge.
If applicable, please bring the following documentation:
- Letters from your primary or supporting physicians
- Results of previous tests (MRI, X-ray, Ultrasound)
- Current medications or pharmacy printout
These documents, along with a complete history and physical exam, will help determine if cannabinoid treatment is right for you.
If medical cannabis is deemed appropriate, you will meet with our councillor who will discuss your treatment options, and how to register you with a producer approved by Health Canada.
Patients will be seen for regular follow-up appointments to assess their response to therapy. These typically occur every three to six months.
