Key Experts Physicians [Physicians are the "key experts" in the medical marijuana debate because the issue is thought by many to be ultimately based on the medical value and risks of marijuana, and Physicians, with their training and clinical work, should (at least in theory) have the best knowledge of marijuana's medical value and risks.] [Note: Key Experts definition varies by sites that have this designation.]
Involvement and Affiliations:
Physician specializing as a holistic medicine consultant, including matters relating to medical cannabis
"involved in what I now consider 'alternative psychiatry,' focusing on awakening of the spirit rather than treatment of mental illness," 1977-1990
"Dr. Eidelman specializes as a holistic medicine consultant, including matters relating to medical cannabis.
Pursuant to the Compassionate Use Act, also known as Proposition 215, Dr. Eidelman will consult with patients who have serious illnesses or conditions for which cannabis provides medical benefit. If you have a serious illness, and can prove it by presenting prior medical records or the name and phone of a physician who can verify it, you can become a patient of Dr. Eidelman.
If you have a serious illness but without this type of verification, you can still see Dr. Eidelman, who can evaluate your medical history and exam you to determine if you qualify as being 'seriously ill' enough for cannabis.
Dr. Eidelman will also be ready to talk of other alternative methods for healing and relieving suffering.
