In 1996 the Compassionate Use Act Proposition 215 was passed in California making marijuana legal for the medical use of many patients. Over the last decade, a total of 16 states have now legalized the use of medical marijuana for their citizens.
This allows a patient with medical needs to be evaluated by a knowledgeable, compassionate physician to assess whether medical marijuana is appropriate.This allows a patient with medical needs to be evaluated by a knowledgeable, compassionate physician to assess whether medical marijuana is appropriate.
Total Herbal Consultations strives to offer the finest quality compassionate and professional health care to patients through their medical marijuana recommendation services. Located on Topanga Canyon Boulevard and nestled in the Simi Valley area, Total Herbal Consultations dedicates itself to helping its patients access medical cannabis with a thoroughly informed understanding of how medical marijuana can help them reclaim their wellness.
The founder and medical director of Total Herbal Consultations, Dr. Khafaja, originates from a decades-long career of working in healthcare, serving as the medical director of three different urgent care facilities spread throughout northern Los Angeles. In the wake of several conspicuous malpractice busts regarding medical cannabis in the late 2000s, only two medical marijuana evaluation centers were serving the community of nearly thirty thousand patients who needed to be reevaluated for their recommendations. He knew firsthand the benefits patients received from using medical cannabis, and in 2009 he decided to add a medical marijuana recommendations facility on to his urgent practice clinics. Starting out with just one doctor, Total Herbal Consultations have since expanded to a team of six doctors at his three locations, ranging in specializations from cardiology, family practice, internal medicine, radiology and more, and all knowledgeable in the many applications and benefits of medical cannabis.
At Total Herbal Consultations, the Topanga Canyon doctors have a sympathetic understanding of their patients’ situations, realizing that many are new to medical marijuana entirely and often are at the end of their rope following years of destroying their bodies with Western prescription drugs. Total Herbal Consultations specifically does not take scheduled appointments so they can offer as much time as a patient needs to fully understand the applications of medical cannabis and how to best use it to find relief.
Both card and cash transactions are welcome at Total Herbal Consultations, and they are proud to offer reduced rates to VA members, patients with MediCal or Medicare, and patients with disabilities. Patients seeking renewals for their recommendation receive the same evaluation at a lower price, and patients with any follow-up questions are welcome to reach out during business hours. Appointments are made on a walk-in basis only.
Total Herbal Consultations’ Topanga Canyon office lies a few streets north of the 101 freeway near Warner Park. Their doctors are proud to serve patients from the Warner Center, Woodland Hills, Canoga Park, Winnetka, West Hills, Calabasas, Chatsworth, Porter Ranch, Granada Hills, Northridge, Reseda, Van Nuys, Encino, Tarzana, Topanga, MonteNido, Hidden Hills, Agoura Hills, Westlake Village, Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, North Hollywood and Sun Valley areas.

I went here to renew my medical card for the second time and once again everything went great. fast and friendly staff in a professional but relaxed atmosphere. I was able to use my renewal the same day without any problems, the shop just had to call an confirm its legitimacy.
I have been coming here for YEARS and I will not go anywhere else. I've never experienced a wait time longer than 10 min (without making an appointment). The doctors are friendly and The gentleman in the front (Alex) is a talkative sweetheart that makes getting a new rec every year a treat. Thanks guys!!!

I had planned to go here to renew my recommendation. First red flag; there's no price shown online which lets you know the price is too high, but I called to find out anyway. One person answered the phone. So unprofessional, I couldn't even understand what she said. I asked the price, she placed me on hold. Someone else gets on the line. I ask my same question. He wanted to assure it was for 'THC' (Total Herbal Consultation). Really?! What else am I calling YOU for? Placed on hold again. & finally the Dr. comes on the phone and lets me know the prices. $50 for renewal $70 for new patient. Ridiculous. Why doesn't the staff who is on phone duty know the price? Why does she speak like she's eating while answering the phone? More so like she has no care for answering the phone. Why are you calling yourself urgent care? Why are you guys running business so sketchy? I then double checked the address and asked what time they close. What the Dr. told me did not match what there time or address says here. Although I was 'desperate' since I was looking for a clinic at a late hour, I wasn't this desperate. In the end I waited it out and went back to my original Dr.
I've gotten my rec here several times. The doctor actually listens to your lungs and stuff.. which I know isn't much but is more than I can say for other docs. I have my rec with them right now, in fact. Verification is always instant...
I felt like I needed to leave a review because the guy working there is really chill, hooked me up with renewal even though it's been a while, etc and I think the person that left the only other review just had a bad experience...

I sent my wife here to get her rec and she had no issues, i the next day went to renew mine and was treated good at first, when i saw the doc i was told mmj does not cure anything and i need to seek hard meds such as pills for my problems for the long run even after exsplaining how it works for me and ive tried pills ect, then was treated horrible.. Doc told me no problem next time in a year if you come back then you need proof of all the meds you've been on and if you dont have it now then you need to ask your doc to put you on it all to see if it works, walks me out and guy tells me that doc will allow one month of a rec for me and they still wanted $70.00 no refund. I then said this is bs ive never had this issue in almost 5 years now and only came here cause how close it was to my home and my wife had no issue and was not questioned or anything. Then i asked to talk to the doc, guy told me if i pay again. Then i demanded my cash back, got it back then went to my normal doc and got it no problem no issues no drama, this place is horrible i wouldnt send my worst enemy here. Oh they also tried to claim their the ONLY legit doctor office and all others will get me arrested.
