"I have 20 years of medical practice in general medicine, having spent the last 12 years as a hospice/palliative medicine physician. Providing care for terminally ill patients using prescription narcotics and other addicting traditional medications, which were often less effective with many side effects, caused me to consider alternative treatments, most notably cannabis-derived products. Now I have dedicated my medical practice to evaluations and ordering of medical marijuana products for patients suffering from qualifying conditions per Florida laws. The use of such products is based on credible medical studies that have been conducted on thousands of patients throughout the world during the last few decades.”
A native of South Carolina, Dr. Dorn holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Clemson University and Doctorates in Medicine and Dentistry from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. He has been a resident of Florida since 1994 and has been active in numerous medical missions to Central America for the last 20 years.
Dr. Dorn is a Tallahassee Medical Marijuana Doctor, and currently practices from our Tallahassee medical marijuana clinic and closely oversees Florida medical marijuana card referrals in multiple locations including The Villages."
"MMTCFL came into existence in 2016 following the legalization of medical marijuana for qualifying conditions in Florida. Co-founder Dr. Joseph Dorn had just finished his twelfth year of working in hospice care for terminally ill patients, rounding out more than 30 years of practicing traditional medicine, and his experience told him that it was time to be part of a change. In the past, many patients suffering from painful and debilitating conditions faced treatment by often-addicting or ineffective medication, with no option to first try a natural solution such as medical cannabis for pain management and treatment. When that option became legalized, the doctors who would soon form the medical staff of MMTCFL knew that they wanted to make a career out of connecting patients to medical cannabis treatments which could make real changes to their lives. The MMTCFL Doctors have been providing qualifying patients with Florida Medical Marijuana Cards since!
Originally a Tallahassee medical marijuana clinic, MMTC has since expanded to include various locations across the state. Medical Marijuana Treatment Clinics of Florida maintains a primary focus of supporting patients seeking effective cannabis-based alternative treatments. We accomplish our mission in a manner which complies with state laws, local ordinances, and medical board guidelines, as well as keeps service costs to a minimum. These core principles allow our patients continued access to Florida’s system of compassionate care. Our mission is to support and encourage the public’s safe access to medical marijuana through Florida’s Compassionate Care Act [Amendment 2]."
