The staff was very helpful and welcoming.. they answered all my questions promptly.
This place was a 10/10 for me, especially since it is super clean inside. Definitely recommend it!
I was at that office. First off the banner doesn't say 25 dollar special it says ask about the 25 dollar special. When I asked they explained to me and yes I am gonna go back for HIV testing. This establishment is very trustworthy.
WARNING: The overall rating of this review is misleading because it is the average of a really good experience during part of my visit(s) and another part of that same visit that was bad to an above average degree. However, the ‘bad’ is avoidable with a little bit of foresight and ‘the good’ is worth the effort—so read on.
Before I go on, let me set the stage; it is July of 2017 and the City of L.A. is currently in limbo on access to cannabis. During the last statewide election (in 2016) the purchase and possession of marijuana by persons over 21 years of age was made legal, but not until 2018. So, until then a recommendation from a M.D. is still“required” for anyone over 18 to be able to step foot inside a pot-shop. Since I am slightly over 21 and my previous recommendation had expired, it is off to the pot-doc I go.
Now, I have held a prescription for medical marijuana for about five years and due to the industry practice of issuing recommendations that are only valid for a single year; this is not my first time at type of rodeo.
The office is located in a mini-mall located on the NW corner of Glenoaks/Sunland Blvd, next to a Carl’s Jr. There is limited parking in front, but getting into the lot via left-turn can be difficult at times. I recommend approaching from the north (going southbound on Glenoaks) so you can make a right turn into their lot—if you pass Sunland, you’ve gone too far.
I was a walk-in at around 2pm on a weekday afternoon and was given a packet of documents to read and fill-out almost immediately. After answering a few basic questions about my health, I had only a few more minutes to wait before being called in for my exam.
After taking my vitals the medical assistant sent the doctor in. She had a great bedside manner and after we commiserated about edibles for a few minutes; we were done, maybe 15 minutes tops since I had walked in. So far, so good.
I returned to the front counter and was advised that I owed them $35. I balked and pointed out that on a banner that was attached to their outside sign it said that recommendations were on “Special for $25” In response, I was told that I was already getting a discount from the regular price of $45 due to my status as a renewal patient (instead of a first-timer).
After asking a few times about the banner I was told (by the purported office manager) that the special was for people who got an HIV test in addition to the cannabis recommendation. That did not make much sense to me, but I decided to go along and said ‘ok, let’s do an HIV test then.’ The manager then said that they were not yet licensed to do HIV tests, but they hoped to be soon. WTF!
The manager said that it wasn’t her fault because one of the two doctors she worked for had jumped the gun and had the banner hung prematurely. When I reminded her that the banner had been up since at least April, she said that the doctor refused to have it taken down. I countered with the fact that the special is also listed on their Weedmaps page and she concurred. THEN, she says that in order to get the discounted price I would have to bring in a printed out hard copy of their in-ad coupon-she wouldn’t print it out for me and said an emailed screenshot from my phone was not acceptable.
Miffed, I paid the $35 and went straight home. I searched Weedmaps and could not find any coupon; only a single sentence under the Deals tab, so I printed that out and headed back to the doctors office.
I decided to stop by a dispensary first, just to make sure that the recommendation was legit and electronically verifiable. Imagine my surprise when they told me that if I was 21 and over they no longer required anything other than an ID! (however, a later visit to another dispensary DID still require a recommendation and they confirmed that my new recommendation was valid).
When I returned the 420 Doctors office, the manager seemed quite surprised because, according to her “almost nobody comes back.” To her credit she accepted my printed out screen shot of the Weedmaps page and refunded my $10 promptly and without argument.
Thank you for visiting our facility and thank you for the review. I'd like to apologize for the confusion. I do understand the sign posting could be confusing. The sign reads 420 Doctor $25 Special, not just $25 evaluation. The word "Special" involves another program which we did't get to discuss in full. I apologize for the inconvenience that may have caused you. We value your review and taken steps to fix any possibility future confusion or misunderstanding. We look forward to serving you again.
First and foremost...this is a REAL clinic. It's not some shady place where you get your card. As a female, I had to take a pregnancy test, weight, and blood pressure. The staff are incredible!
Also, the Doctor is absolutely adorable. She is so sweet and loving, I felt like I really connected with her. For me, it took about 30 minutes to renew my card.
I highly....highly recommend Tizer! Plus it's insanely clean, and remember they also do other blood wor if needed! I will go back to renew, because my last Doctor was a bastard and didn't give a poo and his patients. She does!!!!!
An extremely chill environment. They work very quick and are extremely helpful and understanding.
Good experience. Pretty much what this person said below. Got my meds right after too. Thank you!
Going in at first I didn't know what to expect but I saw the review on weedmap and I gave it a try. If you do their free program you get a discount off your med card, basically it't HIV test and others. Honestly its worth it if you haven't checked it for a while. The facility is clean and nice the staffs are very kind. Will be back again!
I've been here 2 times and both times my experience was pleasant. Dr.emi is so sweet and knowledgeable. the staff are nice and the office is very clean.
