Santa Cruz, california (PRWEB) February 28, 2015
In recent years Medical Marijuana has continuously been embraced by an ever growing number of practicing physicians as a way for them to expand their patient base without any real experience, training or education regarding Cannabis as medicine. Since the FDA still lists Cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug, there have been very few resources available to licensed physicians that can help guide them when recommending a Cannabis related treatment to a patient. Dr. Deborah Malka in Santa Cruz, CA is a leader in the small, but growing number of Medical Professionals that are aware of this issue and working to rectify the problem.
Dr. Malka’s practice is called Cannabis Plus and is located in Santa Cruz and Monterey, CA. She, in addition to being a licensed MD, is also Board Certified in Integrative Holistic Medicine. Dr. Malka has spent years working with Medical Cannabis Patients. While many doctors are willing to recommend Medical Cannabis as a treatment, few offer the same level of knowledge and experience as Dr. Malka. Each patient that visits Cannabis Plus is thoroughly interviewed regarding their medical history as well as their daily lifestyle in order for Dr. Malka to consult in proper usage, dosage and knowledge of exactly how to treat their individual conditions. Patients are also encouraged to return to her for follow up consultations to make sure that they are getting the best results possible.
Dr. Malka’s approach to medicine has allowed her to develop a unique level of experience and understanding regarding Medical Cannabis. While it is valuable in treating her own patients for a vast range of issues from cancer to autism, she has also proved a strong desire to share her knowledge and experience with other medical professionals. She is an officer of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians and has helped to develop the first CME(Continuing Medical Education) curriculum available to provide medical professionals with a greater understanding of Cannabis as medicine as well as twelve credits toward their CME requirement.
In a growing area of medicine that is still more about politics than science, Dr. Deborah Malka is serving the Medical Cannabis movement with her passion, clarity, and expertise.
