We Are Currently Accepting New Patients!

New Patient Visit $160

Follow Patient Visit $80

Transfer Patients $40


Hello, my name is Dr. Rene Pulido and I am sorry to inform you but our friend Dr. Simmons has retired and moved to Texas. Dr. Simmons has entrusted me with the care and future of his patients because of my reputation in the community, my clinic location, Mayo clinic training, my 10 years of experience, and because I have the best pricing in Florida.
I feel like I have been saving lives putting patients on medical marijuana and for that reason I have the lowest pricing in the entire state of Florida. Patients that have already seen Dr. Simmons in the past will only pay $80 for their 7 month followups which include recommendations for all treatment options of medical marijuana including smokable.

Jacksonville Medical Marijuana Doctors

Our medical specialists care about you & your loved one's well being. Medical Marijuana is now available to qualifying patients in a variety of forms from licensed dispensaries. Our cannabis physicians and staff will guide you through the process from registration, dosage and making your first medical marijuana purchase from a treatment center near you. Florida passed Amendment 2, on November 8, 2016 allowing patients to access this medicine legally from quality controlled sources under the supervision of a trained and certified physician. The Center for Health and Wellness currently has locations in Jacksonville, Orlando, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood with plans to extend our medical marijuana clinics to more Florida cities in 2019. Find out if you qualify for a medical card in Florida. Make sure you do your due diligence when researching online for a local medical marijuana doctor. Call us if you have any questions. 

Where to Buy Medicinal Cannabis in Florida

After getting the medical cannabis card, you will be able to purchase your medicine from a medical marijuana treatment center. To avoid police citations, including when you already have a medical marijuana card, you should only make purchases from the licensed sources.  When pulled over with state-approved THC, you will have to show the police your card and the proof you purchased it at one of the licensed dispensaries.

What You Will Get in the Licensed Dispensaries

In the dispensaries, Florida medical marijuana patients can get tinctures, oils, extracts and flowers. Lastly, you have to keep in mind that no insurance will pay for your medical cannabis.

Medical Marijuana Flower

As of early 2019, a new law has passed allowing medical marijuana treatment centers in the state of Florida to sell medical marijuana flower. Center For Health And Wellness is now prescribing smokeable medical marijuana flower to our existing and new patients. If you are an existing patient and would like to add medical marijuana flowers to your order there is a $50 charge.


Patients will be seen by a specialized physician who is registered with the Florida Office of Compassionate Use.

Qualifying Conditions

With the passage of Amendment 2, Patients are finally able to get the relief they need.

Enjoy Life Once Again

Dr. Joycelyn Elders, MD, former US Surgeon General:

“The evidence is overwhelming that marijuana can relieve certain types of pain, nausea, vomiting and other symptoms caused by such illnesses as multiple sclerosis, cancer and AIDS — or by the harsh drugs sometimes used to treat them. And it can do so with remarkable safety. Indeed, marijuana is less toxic than many of the drugs that physicians prescribe every day.“

The Approved Conditions

You cannot get medical marijuana by simply walking into the office of the local doctor and saying that you have chronic pain. The Amendment 2 limited the use of medical marijuana to a few medical conditions, which include Parkinson’s disease, anxiety, ALS, anorexia, cancer, arthritis, glaucoma, and epilepsy, PTSD, HIV/AIDS and Multiple Sclerosis.

The law also permits use of marijuana in treatment of other debilitating conditions of same class or kind. In other words, if you are suffering from any autoimmune condition that is similar to multiple sclerosis such as lupus, a medical cannabis doctor might prescribe the drug for the condition. The qualification is meant for individuals with less common conditions and doctors can make the call on a per patient basis.
