Testimonials

Barbara, 74
(click to view video testimonial)

– 6 months on medical cannabis
– Parkinson’s, chronic pain, debilitating tremor
– Previously treated with opioids, epilepsy medication, physical therapy

Excerpt:

“I have Parkinson’s, chronic pain, and a tremor which runs in our family. It affects my voice, my jaw, my hands, my head. And in the past I’ve tried medications. I could have drunk alcohol heavily, that usually helps, but that wasn’t an option for me for obvious reasons. And I also have pretty bad back, which continued to get worse from being a nurse. It got to the point where the tremor prevented me from drawing blood, drawing up medications, feeding myself without embarrassment, and so forth and so on…”

– 4 months on medical cannabis
– PTSD, severe physical trauma to back

Excerpt:

“I took 9-10 pills in the morning and another handful like that every night. Since I’ve come here, I don’t take any of those pills in the morning. I do take some nighttime pills, but I don’t take mood stabilizers like I had to. I’ve been treated with medical cannabis four months, and it has made a huge change.

I came to Dr. Dorn, and it seemed like I already had known him. I think the the best thing is, if I had any questions at all, he would answer them…”

Excerpt:

“With the medical cannabis and coming off of all the narcotics and opioids, I’m able to function as more so myself these days. My pulmonary function tests have changed drastically. My diffusion capacity went from 0.14% to about 85% within the last year, so we’re hoping to get me back to work within the next year depending on how this process goes…”
