Dr. John Padron is a North Miami Beach Medical Marijuana Doctor
Dr. Padron and the health care team at Opa Medical Group strive to provide North Miami Beach patients with compassionate, professional care through services ranging from medical marijuana certifications to pediatrics. They proudly never turn a patient away, and use their extensive medical cannabis knowledge to successfully heal their North Miami Beach customers and improve their overall quality of life.
Dr. John Padron earned his doctorate from the University of Guadalajara Medical School, completing his residency in Family Medicine at the St. Mary of Nazareth Hospital. Working out of his private practice, Opa Medical Group, Dr. Padron has practiced medicine for more than 20 years and treated a broad range of patient backgrounds and health concerns. A large concern many of his North Miami Beach patients faced included chronic pain, and they often were sick of the painful or unwanted side effects involved with opioid prescription medications. Seeking an alternative route, the doctor’s research aligned with the timing of Florida’s 2016 medical cannabis election, where the population of the state legalized medical cannabis for treatment of several qualifying conditions. Seeing medical marijuana’s value as an alternative treatment, Dr. Padron chose to include medical marijuana evaluations and certifications in his North Miami Beach family practice to better serve his many patients in a safe and compassionate manner.
While Dr. Padron can accept many insurances for his primary care and family medicine services, he cannot take insurance for medical cannabis evaluations at this time. To receive a medical marijuana certification, doctors must see patients over the course of three months and establish a bona-fide doctor-patient relationship following a thorough medical evaluation. The North Miami Beach medical marijuana doctor and staff are happy to assist with any patient questions over the phone, and all appointments are scheduled in advance.
