IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING MEDICAL MARIJUANA:
Child Neurology Center may prescribe- if medically necessary- medical marijuana (CBD) for our established patients who have refractory epilepsy. We are unable to provide this prescription for any other reason.
We are working to learn the protocols and procedures compliant with state and federal law for recommending CBD. Face to face discussion with your physician on the risks and possible benefits of this therapy is mandatory. Long term risks are not known at this time, and use is therefore limited to the most severely affected patients who have considered and/or exhausted all known FDA approved therapies, devices and procedures.
Please note that the distribution of medical marijuana is through state-approved dispensaries. We do not keep this or any medications on site.
