I am so pleased that I've chosen this place for comfort and the well being of my current health situation. It was not hard at all following the simple steps to acquire a NY state card. From beginning to end, staff was very informative, professional, and prompt when getting back to me if I left a message with any concern, which were little to none. I definitely recommend their services to anyone seeking an alternative treatment. I never thought it could be this easy and I'm so glad that I've made this decision!!

I highly recommend NY MMJ Associates for everyone. They really made the process easy by  doing the legwork to acquire all my medical records, while the ability to use modern technology to exchange forms and complete interviews allowed me the comfort, privacy, and security of completing the entire process from my home. All staff and Docs were extremely nice, patient, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Numerous times throughout the process I felt like I was important to them. I searched and read reviews for a long time before choosing them and I’m 100% convinced they were the right choice for me and could be the right choice for everyone!

This organization is professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. They take their time explaining everything and answer all questions (I had alot!). I was able to go through the entire process and become certified the same day. Their online system is so easy to follow, I was actually able to go through the entire process on my Android mobile device. I also did the Skype interview, with their experienced doctor, through my mobile device. I didn't have to leave my house once!

Thank you again for making the process extremely simple and providing a pleasant experience!

Tip for Newcomers:  Always keep a personal record of the latest imaging (MRI), tests (EMG), procedures, and progress note from your doctor. I'm very organized and had everything on hand.

I can't say enough positive things about this practice.  They are responsive, make the process less daunting and provide Skype appointments.  This option made it possible for me to finally be able to get my card.  I found the staff and doc to be very kind, sensitive and helpful from initial inquiry to ensuring I obtained my card.

I have suffered from fibromyalgia for the past six years and have had difficulty finding relief for my symptoms. My doctor suggested that it was time to give medical marijuana a chance. I found this site and I am really glad I did. The staff was really helpful and they guided me toward the process of getting my medical marijuana card as quickly as possible. It is so easy and super convenient. I couldn’t of asked for better service. I highly recommend them to any one who suffers from chronic pain like I do.

They are so kind and go above what most businesses would do. I had a lot of questions and needed extra help. My pain and the pills made it hard for me to do anything. The staff was so patient and helpful to me throughout the whole process. This is so convenient and I saw the doctor through my phone, which is great for someone like me who has unbearable pain. They even helped me register for my card online after! I am so grateful for the amazing and caring doctor and staff.

Excellent and responsive staff that worked quickly and efficiently to gather my documents for me from my doctor.
Updates were frequent with a casual tone that made them feel approachable through e-mail or text and service definitely felt prioritized around my needs.
NOT like I was just waiting in some strangers office as just another patient.
Would definitely recommend.

Thank you NYMMJ for the reassurance that I was not alone on this and that you guys went out of your way to help me with my certification, I don't know what I would have done not knowing about computers and you guys coming all the way to my home to set me up with my consultation. I recommend you guys to the whole world. Thank you Christian for your IT  knowledge and Anu for coming to my house and thank you  Dr. Najeeb for helping me out. Thank the whole team and all the other staff as well.

Such a great place. They made the process so incredibly easy I couldn’t believe it. They communicated every step of the way and responded very quickly to me. Getting certified has made such a big difference with my condition and Medical Marijuana Associates helps people. So glad I picked this place!

A+ service!! The best experience I have had with healthcare and doctors. The whole team is patient and compassionate and they helped me with everything from A-Z. I couldn't be happier with my experience. With so many other doctors I feel like I am just another patient, another number for them. But here I was treated with genuine kindness and respect by every single person I spoke to. If anyone is interested in medical marijuana, this is the #1 and only company to use. Thank you wholeheartedly to everyone. I appreciate all of your help so much.

The doctor and staff were the best! They really cared about my medical needs and took care of me really quickly. I just am personally happy that I was able to find them, and just for them to help me get the right medical decision to help my body. I defiantly recommended to many other people who are suffering with many different things to give them a look. Its pretty cheap just for them to look over your medical records and they will not make you pay to see the doctor if your not approved which is very nice. They look over medical records in very detail and make sure that getting medical marijuana is right for you and its also a very quick process to how they get back to you.

This was such a great experience. They communicate very quickly and clearly and make the process as simple as possible. Many providers, even those on the NY registry will make you jump through hoops and generally make it a very long and expensive process. I have nerve damage in my finger, and I was made to take anti seizure medication with nasty side effects before my original pain management doctor would prescribe medical marijuana. The process took under a day with NYMMJ and was still completely professional and comfortable. I can not recommend them any higher. Thank you!

It literally only took me just two days to get my NYS-MMP card! I did all the paperwork electronically with them and the only time I had to physically speak with someone was for my scheduled video skype consultation with the wonderful Dr. Hussaini. They make it easy and are fully accommodating to your needs, please spread the word about them!

I highly recommend NYMMA. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the Doctor and his staff. I started the process on a Friday night, and received my MM certification 2 days later. I have begun treatment and look forward to continuing to be a patient of NY Medical Marijuana Associates. After suffering with chronic back pain for several years, this is a quality of life change. I sincerely appreciate what they have done for me.

This was a turn key process. I was always concerned about the associated costs and process when applying, but NY Medical Marijuana Associates have made it simple. The electronic paperwork is clear and concise, the costs are reasonable, and the interview was thorough and enlightening. I highly recommend their service.

Excellent Service!   We had a rough start with glitching while trying to Skype but the Doctor was so kind , patient and empathetic.  He made it less stressful and I'm looking forward to receiving my certification shortly.  This is a wonderful service and I'll tell my fellow Lupus warriors to sign up! :)

I have a long history of documented health issues that qualify me for Medical Marijuana but there are limited doctors in the area certified to prescribe and the wait list is very long.  The process was so simple, the doctor was extremely helpful, and everything was done in no time!! Would definitely recommend to anyone who is right for this program!!
