Read about a local doctor opened a medical cannabis clinic to provide compassionate, expert care in the field of cannabinoid medicine.
Dr. James Weeks is a firm believer in the power of cannabis as medicine. That’s why he opened One Heart Medical, a locally owned medical cannabis clinic that provides compassionate, expert care in the field of cannabinoid medicine.
“We provide access to the medical cannabis card, detailed education on all aspects of cannabis, as well as provide follow up care as needed,” explains Weeks.
The main goal behind this alternative medical practice is to help decrease the stigmata that is associated with cannabis while also improving the quality of life for its patients.
Weeks himself has extensive experience in the medical field. He trained at The Christ Hospital and is board certified in Internal Medicine.
“I have been a practicing hospitalist for the last nine years,” he says. “Not only do I run One Heart Medical, but you can also find me teaching medical students and residents as a part-time faculty at a local hospital and volunteering to provide medical services to the underserved in downtown Cincinnati.”
Aside from the work he does to better the community and the lives of his patients through his medical practice, he also feels strongly about education.
“We provide detailed education in regards to all aspects of cannabis to our patients, including modes of use, impact of various cannabinoids and terpenes, and dosing,” explains Weeks. “We tailor the education to the patient’s individual needs.”
While there are a variety of services offered at One Heart Medical, each treatment plan is individualized to the person receiving those services based on their medical problems, symptoms, and the medications they take.
“We have an open door policy, thus if a patient of ours has any questions they can call us, email us, use our clinics my chart, or come back in to see us,” he says. “We want all our patients to achieve the best results from cannabis.”
One Heart Medical is helping its clinic stand out from other healthcare providers in the quality service it offers patients. Included in the private, non discriminatory, and relaxed environment are 1 hour visits so that each patient gets quality time and education.
One Heart Medical is located in the historic Lincoln School in Columbia Tusculum at 455 Delta Avenue, Suite 303.
