East Greenbush Doctor - Urgent and Primary Care

About Us


Urgent and Primary Care is a East Greenbush Medical Marijuana Doctor’s Clinic

At Urgent and Primary Care in East Greenbush, a suburb in Albany, New York, the compassionate doctor and staff offer personalized patient care, including medical marijuana evaluations and certifications as well as a full range of urgent and primary care services. Committed to helping their Albany patients find lasting health, Urgent and Primary care strives to ensure each patient finds the quality of life and attention they deserve.

Dr. Laxmikant Bhoiwala achieved his Doctorate from the B J College of Gujarat University, specializing in internal medicine and functional medicine. With more than twenty-five years of practicing medicine, Dr. Bhoiwala works with dozens of patients who experience chronic pain or suffering from a variety of debilitating conditions. Seeking ways of helping them other than the potentially risky and dangerous side effects of prescription medicine, the Albany doctor knew several of his patients were using medical marijuana without certification for backaches and some other health issues. He saw their success and decided to involve himself in the medical cannabis field by attending conferences, reading literature and learning all about its numerous beneficial process, with little side effects and zero risks of overdose. Dr. Bhoiwala realized this single medicinal plant carries a ton of healing properties and began offering medical cannabis certifications at the beginning of 2016, helping many patients regain control of their chronic conditions.

As a primary care physician, Dr. Bhoiwala includes medical cannabis certifications as a part of his primary and urgent care practice, where marijuana is just one piece of the puzzle. The Greenbush medical cannabis doctor thoroughly reviews the medical records of each patient seeking a certification, helping them to comply with state protocol and making sure their recommendation includes instructions that specifically aid their unique health concerns. Dr. Bhoiwala takes the time to educate his Upstate New York patients on how medical cannabis can help them, as well as advising on diet, nutrition and lifestyle changes to lastingly improve his patients' health. If treatment isn’t working, he’ll consult with patients to find the better cannabis solution until they find the optimal therapy.

Urgent and Primary Care proudly provides discounted services to veterans, seniors, and patients with hardships, as well as charging a lower renewal fee for returning patients. Follow-up medical marijuana evaluation visits occur at the one-month mark and every subsequent three months to ensure the cannabis medicine succeeds. Patients are welcome to call anytime with questions or concerns, and if a patient does not qualify for medical marijuana, they are not charged. Both walk-ins and scheduled appointments are available.

Best in Compassionate Care

Dr. Bhoiwala is the undisputed medical professional to go to in regards to New York M.M.P. and Compassionate Care Act. His expertise and responsiveness in regards to my personal medical situation was perfect. This is the Doctor to go to in the Albany area if you are an eligible patient.

Kathleen

Dr. B, his office and nursing staff are very pleasant and knowledgeable about the entire process. Dr B took the time to go over my medical/surgical history and made recommendations for which products would provide me relief. So far, so good!! I would "highly" recommend. ;)

Great Experience!

Dr. Bhoiwala was very knowledgeable, took his time to explain to me all the details about the medical marijuana program and if it was right for me. He was very respectful and punctual. I HIGHLY! recommend Dr. Bhoiwala to any and all who think that Medical Cannabis might be right for you. His practice is easy to find and located right in E. Greenbush.

Excellent service and convenience

Dr Bhoiwalla is very courteous and knowledgeable. Also, one does not need an appointment as he is running an urgent care center. They also have very convenient hours of operation. I recommend them highly.

Dr. B is great

Dr. B is really good. He listens and addresses all your problems not just the medical marijuana issues. His staff is very polite and keeps confidences very well. I would tell anyone looking for a medical marijuana dr. that he is worth the drive.

A great family run practice

Dr. B and his staff are very nice and very thorough. I went to see him for my chronic pain that I've been living with for the past 20 years. During his exam I mentioned I have arthritis but did not know what type other than rheumatoid which was ruled out several years ago. It turns out his daughter is a rheumatologist so now in addition to hopefully getting my pain under control I'll be able to treat my arthritis the RIGHT way. To me that's a WIN-WIN! My only "glitch" is the cost, but that is not the fault of any of the doctors, it's the way Prince Andy wanted it.

Dr. Bhoiwala

Dr. Bhoiwala has helped me start something I have wanted to do for years - find out if medical cannabis would induce remission of Crohn's disease. He prescribed a one to one cannabidiol to tetrahydrocannabinol formula, which is great because it doesn't impair my work or my driving. It has already proven to have benefits; I am prone to severe foot and leg cramps, especially when I am sleeping, which is no longer a problem. It is a better sleep aid than Ambien; I rarely need to get up and go to the bathroom during the night. I am prone to 'brain fog', which has been less of a problem. I am gaining weight, even though I am not eating more than usual, which argues that I now have better nutrient absorption. I feel more calm.
