How to get Medical Records for a Medical Marijuana Card in Arizona
As part of Arizona’s Medical Marijuana Card Program patients are required to be evaluated by a licensed physician for one of the approved Qualifying Conditions for a Medical Marijuana Card. Medical Marijuana Physicians are asked to review all previous medical records, as applicable, from the past 12 months for the Qualifying Condition that the patient is obtaining the Medical Marijuana Card for.
Obtaining Medical Records
Green Leaf Medical Marijuana Card Doctors accepts medical records showing that you have been treated for a Qualifying Condition within the past 12 months. These summaries must include the diagnosis about the qualifying condition(s). We do not accept discs or pictures as medical records. We must have your records at the time of your appointment to be able to use them.
No Access to Medical Records?
We also perform medical evaluations for a small fee if you do not have access to recent medical records. Give us a call for more information.
Here are some common ways patients obtain their medical records:
1. Visit your doctor's patient portal and download a recent visit summary that includes your diagnosis.
2. Call your medical provider's office and ask for the chart notes from your recent visit(s). Some offices may charge for this.
3. Fill out our Release of Records form, and we can fax it to your medical provider for you if you send it back to us (make sure it is signed and the fax number is correct).
What to Expect at the Visit
During your visit at Green Leaf Medical Marijuana Card Doctors, the physician and staff will answer any questions you may have, review your medical records, and determine if you qualify for the program. Once you have been recommended for the program from one of our caring physicians our staff will take your photo for your ID Card, submit your application to AZ DHS, and collect payment. You will receive an electronic copy of your card within 5 business days from the State of Arizona. We encourage all our patients to schedule a complimentary visit with one of our patient educators to gain more knowledge on marijuana use, Arizona dispensaries, and the Arizona Marijuana Program.
