$40 "to see the doctor" plus whatever else they feel like charging you. Your rec will cost easily over $200.
There is a doctor less than 10 minutes away who will charge you $35/year, no hidden charges at all. They are more legit, will take less time, and cost you way less. You can look them up, they're across the street from Dunkin Donuts.
These people are not professionals, they do not care about your condition, they do not care about helping people or their health. They barely pay their employees, and only the highest up are benefitting from ripping you off. The doctors are a joke, one consistently needs to be woken up throughout the day because he can't stay awake.
If you don't have a California ID and want to get a weed card and don't mind paying $200+ for the experience, there will be a couple dispensaries you can go to. They have shitty quality/prices but you will get to go inside a dispensary. Other than that, you have NO reason to come here.

Venice clinics issue recs to out-of-state visitors. This is highly illegal. The rec is then invalid and cannot be used anywhere legally nor would any medicine consumption be legal. I am a clinic owner and have seen numerous patients sign up with us only to be turned away for not having proof of residency. These clinics DO NOT CARE and just pocket the money without a second thought to all the hungry tourists. Trust, YOUR REC IS INVALID AND YOUR WEED IS ILLEGAL IF YOU CANNOT PROVE CA RESIDENCY. Period. I have spoken on the phone with these clinics who just deny deny deny. HOW ARE THEY STILL IN BUSINESS??

Stay away, I can not stress this enough. These guys are a COMPLETE SCAM.
You get a $40 price quote... its advertised everywhere... and so I go in.
After a 1.5 hour process(and only 2 minutes spent with the actual doctor) you get to the manager at the end to pay. They pop out a chart with their prices.. They tell you that if you have to choice to pay:
$40 for 3 Months
$80 for 6 Months
$120 for 12 Months.
And you can get a $25 ID Card...
Complete Scam, nothing but scam scam scam.
I told them right then and there that what they are doing is wrong, and something that is probably illegal too. I said that I refuse to pay that much, and that I was expecting to pay only $40 for a year. This is my 6th year of recommendation, NEVER have I had to deal with this subscription-like nonsense. Would your physician tell you that they would have to charge you 3x the normal price for a visit if you want refills on your medications? NO.
I told them that I will not pay them, and they pulled out the paper I signed and initialed. I had initialed that I agree to pay if the doctor approves the recommendation. So I said they can do what they want, but I wont pay. I said that I could go many other places and get my full year for $35-40 without this BS. They said that if I don't pay the base doctor fee, they will call the police. I told them that is not how it works, and that they can just send collection agencies against me if they want. They threatened again to call LAPD. I refused to pay what they were asking. After a lot of haggling and resistance on my end, they cut the price in half.
This is was an awful experience. Don't go here, and warn everyone you know! I am taking this place DOWN whether they like it or not. I am contacting the Medical Board of California as I am writing this.I am afraid of losing my recommendation or having them mess with me because I am doing what I can to warn people. Its a must. Who knows how many 100's of thousands of dollars they have ripped people off for.
If you want more proof of their nonsense, I suggest you Yelp them. You will see 35 more reviews saying exactly what I am saying.
