In Bangor, There Are Two Nurse Practitioners Seeing Patients, Kelley Said.

If they do get qualified, we dont charge anything for a six-month follow-up. Clinics are staffed with what the companys website states are board-certified and licensed medical professionals. In Bangor, there are two nurse practitioners seeing patients, Kelley said. Patients also can also see if they qualify by calling ahead, McDonald said. The practitioners that work for Canna Care Docs are on a rotating schedule and have full-time jobs outside of the per diem clinic work they do, except for two full-time nurse practitioners who were recently hired, she said. With the new, expanded services in Maine, Canna Care Docs is currently writing probably about one-third of the certifications in the state, McDonald said. We started two years ago in Massachusetts, and we started in Maine in August of last year, she said. Our first location opened in Biddeford, and Augusta opened in November 2014. We opened Bangor just last month, and were opening in Auburn next month. Canna Care Docs also operates clinics in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware and the District of Columbia. The company is committed to the medicinal value of cannabis and provides patients access to a caring, non-judgmental medical professional, according to its website. Dedham resident Mark VanHorn was in the Bangor Canna Care Docs office on Friday. He suffered a cracked pelvis during a May 2002 car crash trying to avoid a deer and still has nightmares with telephone poles coming at me. He said he never fully recovered, and he suffers from anxiety. He said he has previously self-medicated with marijuana.
