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.

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 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.
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 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.
Dr. Bhoiwala and his staff are simply excellent! Very professional, expeditious, and courteous.
I've suffered from epilepsy for the past 27 years and have reluctantly needed to prescribe to many pharmaceuticals that are nothing short of terrible and debilitating. While I've smoked marijuana on numerous occasions, I've only dreamed of the day I would be able to utilize such a perfect medicine. Not to mention, I never imagined I'd be able to receive this medicine in New York State.
Dr. Bhoiwala made this miracle happen for me with compassion and expedience.
Go see the Dr. when you're ready to get off pharmaceuticals.
I just started seeing Dr B. I am so happy that I finally have a Dr that really cares and is professional and friendly. His office is very comfortable and his staff is great. I have been dealing with my condition for a long time, so many of the other places I have been have been to are cold and make me feel like I am a bother. I will continue to go to Dr B and look forward to improving my life with his guidance and patience.
I had my first appointment with Dr. Bhoiwala. A little over a week ago. I'll be honest I was a little nervous and didn't know what to expect. He was very kind, listened, and explained any questions that I had. He put me at ease. I'm looking forward to meeting with him again in a month from now. I'm really hoping that my new medication will help me in managing my pain so that I am able to get through the day of work and sleep better at night.
Dr. Bhoiwala has been my primary physician for many years. Dr. B. is very caring and always takes the time that is necessary to ensure every patient receives the proper care they require. I sincerely would recommend Dr. B. and his staff to all of my family and friends for all of their healthcare needs. Friendly, professional and kind. Thank you Dr. Bhoiwala
I was recommended to Dr Bhoiwala and I could not be happier. He is easy to reach, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable. He has helped me obtain my medical card and listened when I wanted options to handle my condition the way I would like and is appropriate. The front desk is extremely nice as well. I am so thankful for his services. They are really compassionate there. It is not like the cold un-compassionate Pain Clinics that I was used too (which I no longer need to service thanks to Medical Marijuana). Thank you Dr B and Every one who works at Urgent and Primary care for your compassion!!!!
