Located in South Western Chicago this fully equipped medical office provides consultations and certifications for the Illinois Medical Cannabis Program. The office is open to any area resident suffering from one or more of Illinois' approved qualifying conditions. Prospective patients will meet with Dr. Salzman to discuss whether or not the use of cannabis would be beneficial in treating their medical condition, and what potential benefits or adverse side effects they may experience. If Dr. Salzman determines the benefits would out weigh any potential risks he will provide the patient with a completed and signed Medical Cannabis Physician Certification to be sent with the qualifying patient application.

Green Care Medical's compassionate support staff are happy to answer any questions about the state program, and assist qualified patients with their application process for acquiring their Medical Cannabis Registry Identification Card (MMJ Card) in order to ensure patients are able to get their medicine in a timely and efficient matter.
