Sun Valley MMJ Certification Clinic-Phoenix
Sun Valley aims to provide cannabis patients the nation's finest certification experience, with a strong emphasis on professionalism and exceptional medical care. Their Phoenix office is focused on quality versus quantity, they reject the status quo culture of seedy, transactional clinics, and instead ensure that each patient feels cared for and safe.
The couple behind Sun Valley have a long history witnessing and advocating the benefits of medical cannabis. Living with psoriatic arthritis and attending college in Colorado, one of the founders got his medical card in 2005 and has experienced the certification process 11 times over the last decade to stay legal. A lifelong advocate of medical marijuana and a serial entrepreneur, when he and his wife moved to Arizona, they were outraged to see that there was little clinical process to getting a card: most clinics were lacking professionalism, organization, and focus on patient care. This fire was stoked by the loss of his mother and father within eighteen months of each other to pancreatic cancer and ALS, two diseases with numerous clinical trials that have demonstrated the benefits of cannabis. Unfortunately, his parents (both federal employees) never consented to try it. Wanting to help patients like his parents, and with his wife's 15 year career experience in managing medical practices, in 2013 the founders built their first clinic with the money they saved for their honeymoon. In three short years they have grown their practice in Arizona to three locations serving over 15% of all Arizona medical marijuana patients (17,000 patients certified), and have just opened their fourth location in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition, Sun Valley has recently launched the first and only legitimate franchise model in the ancillary cannabis industry.
At Sun Valley, they’ve turned the once grueling process of getting a green card into a clinical, professional experience. Their facilities operate, look and smell like a family doctor’s office, with a team of physicians onsite at each of their locations six days a week. They boast a custom-made electronic medical record system that handles all data, including patient information, reminders for follow-ups, referral program tracking, and communication channels that are paperless and HIPAA compliant. Sun Valley handles the entire evaluation and recommendation process from start to finish. Patients sit with a local medical cannabis specialist who shares a computer screen and completes the application process together with the patient. They then continue tracking the progress of each card in real time until that card is approved, resulting in an error rate that’s less than 1%.
Checking in, seeing the physician, and checking out are all structured into 15-minute rotations , allowing Sun Valley MMJ to distill their appointment process to an exact science. Most full-service appointments take 30-45 minutes. They are proud to offer discounts for veterans, qualified minor patients/parents, and dispensary agents. As huge advocates of education, they are happy to answer any follow-up questions free of charge and appointments are available as scheduled or on a walk-in basis with all appointments honored first, Sun Valley never double books patients.
With six offices based throughout Arizona and Nevada, Sun Valley’s Phoenix location is proud to serve the surrounding communities of Glendale, Peoria, Scottsdale,Tolleson, Alhambra, Paradise Valley, Mesa, Sun City, Surprise and Deer Valley Village.
In accordance with Arizona law, each facility has a physician on site to assist chronic pain patients with updating their medical records. Additionally, thanks to investing in a FBI live scan fingerprinting machine, Sun Valley is the only clinic that can certify a qualified minor in a single visit that usually takes about an hour, a feat no other clinic has chosen to achieve. Sun Valley has also created quick and efficient processes to assist caregivers, lost card replacement, and dispensary agent fingerprinting.
As the capital city of Arizona, Phoenix is home to a large selection of cultural and natural landmarks. Home of the NBA’s Suns and the MLB’s Diamondbacks, it plays host to the Arizona State Fair and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Just to the south are the Gila River Indian Reservation and South Mountain Park, and a short drive north leads to Lake Pleasant Regional Park and the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. Wherever patients are coming from, down the 10 or 17 highways, Sun Valley MMJ Certification Clinic is proud to serve its vibrant communities.

I finally decided I was going to get my card so I called the center closest to my house for information. The woman who answered the call was extremely friendly and helpful and didn't make me feel like a nuisance for asking questions. Following her direction I got my medical release to them and was able to be seen the next day. A week later here I am certified and happy as a clam. The staff of very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure my visit was comfortable. Highly recommend!
