Boasting a long history of pain management services, Dr. Dastain proudly offers medical cannabis evaluations to qualifying New York patients at his Manhattan Practice. The doctor prioritizes patient education, and his driving philosophy is to make patients feel as safe and comfortable and help them improve their quality of life.
Dr. Jean-Yves Dastain graduated with his medical degree from the University Pierre et Marie Curie Medical School in 1971, practicing medicine for over forty years to date. In addition to his private family medicine practice, Dr. Dastain often worked at the Hope Center for HIV rehabilitation in the Bronx, and due to the nature of their illness, he would offer many pain management treatments to his patients. He did not like overloading his patients with prescription painkillers and found medical cannabis as an efficient alternative that didn’t include narcotic’s potentially dangerous side effects. When New York legalized medical marijuana certifications in 2014, Dr. Dastain began to provide evaluations at his private practice to patients as an alternative therapy to qualifying conditions.
While Dr. Dastain, as a family medicine practitioner, is equipped to prescribe any medication applicable to a patient's conditions or symptoms, he prefers certifying patients for medical marijuana because of its natural origins and safe application. The doctor’s main philosophy is to make his patients as well as possible and help them to manage their pain with minimal reliance on opiates and narcotics. The doctor and compassionate staff work hard to explain the science behind medical marijuana and different cannabis products to their patients and strive to ensure that each patient feels well cared for and safe.
Dr. Dastain is happy to offer discounted certification rates for veterans and seniors, as well as a reduced price for renewal patients. Follow-up appointments are scheduled for every six months, and each patient’s dispensary is welcome to call the doctor to determine the best cannabis strains, dosages and consumption methods for their condition. Please call or register online to schedule an appointment.
