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.

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!!!!

I've been to see Dr. Bhoiwala twice. The first time we actually discussed my particular disease (Crohn's) and both cannabis-based and other forms of treatment for it (such as diet). He prescribed a balance CBD:THC dose, typical for Crohn's. It proved very effective in some ways, but couldn't kill enough of the pain during a flare. Dr. Bhoiwala, in the second visit, then switched me to high-THC for painkilling (which allowed me to get both high THC and balanced THC:CBD). In both cases, he was very friendly and supportive and his prices quite reasonable. I'd recommend him without hesitation.
