Need some help with MMJ
    #497073 - 11/11/10 12:16 PM (6 years, 28 days ago)

So I have IBS but haven't been able to see a doctor till recently and my doctor agrees that I do have IBS but he says he cant diagnose me and that only a gastrointenologist  can diagnose me. Unfortunately I don't have insurance and can't afford to see a specialist. So I can afford to see my doctor every once in awhile to deal with my IBS but I want to know if I can still get my medical card with all the documented symptoms and still not have a diagnosis.

Iv tried contacting the medical clinic I'm planning on getting my permit from but haven't been able to get a straight answer yet.

The women I spoke too told me I need to be documented by my physician to have been suffering from these symptoms for 90 days. Basically 90 days from my last medical visit about IBS I can apply I think.

Can anyone help?

sorry, i dont know how it works in washington.  but here in colorado, you can call or go into a dispensary and ask to set an appt. with THEIR doctor.  if you know of any local dispensaries in your area, call em up and ask if they could get you in touch with a doctor regarding a  "referral"

good luck

I highly recommend contacting http://thc-foundation.com/washington/

If my memory serves me correctly they only need proof of your condition from 3 visits in the past couple years.

Yeah I am going through the THCF and they told me I only need chart notes from three visits pertaining to my IBS. But do I still qualify for a permit if I haven't been diagnosed with IBS because of lack of testing but still suffer all the symptoms and everything? I tried asking the THF and never heard back from the women I had been talking too.

thanks guys!

They prefer to deal with people who have already been diagnosed with conditions, that way they can give help to the most people possible.

I know it can be a long process, but keep trying to see doctors and applying for an appointment with THCF, once you have what they require its a pretty smooth process.

They will not give you an appointment unless they are already 99% sure you qualify.
