West Hartford Medical Center
At West Hartford Medical Center, patient comfort and wellness take precedence, where the doctor and compassionate staff both make every effort to provide their patients with compassionate primary care and medical cannabis certification. Dr. Jaquez and the team at West Hartford Medical Center are committed to exploring every avenue, including medical marijuana, available to help their patients heal and regain their quality of life.
Dr. Corey Jaquez is one of three doctors practicing at the West Hartford Medical Center and has practiced medicine since 2009, specializing in primary care and family medicine. When medical marijuana became legalized in Connecticut, the doctor was persuaded by his mother to start performing medical cannabis certifications after hearing so many patient testimonials supporting its benefits. Citing its potential in treating cancer, glaucoma, and numerous other medical conditions, Dr. Jaquez started performing medical marijuana evaluations and providing certifications in 2012, as a separate service attached to his primary care center.
Dr. Jaquez, after several years working closely with patients from all walks of life, truly dedicates his practice to being there for and helping his patients through the benefits of medical marijuana. His excellent bedside manners put patients at ease, encouraging them to feel comfortable and open up about any potential cause of their conditions. After carefully listening to his patients’ concerns, the doctor advises them as best they can and will certify them for medical cannabis use if they meet Connecticut qualifying conditions. If they do not qualify, Dr. Jaquez will provide what treatment he can as a primary care doctor, and is more than happy to refer patients to outside specialists to help them achieve their health.
The West Hartford Medical Center currently cannot accept insurance for medical cannabis certifications but offers a discount for patients seeking a certification renewal. Their kind staff is happy to answer any marijuana and cannabis related questions following a patient’s doctor’s visit, and while they do accept some walk-in appointments, most sessions are scheduled due to high patient volume.
Based in West Hartford, Connecticut, the West Hartford Medical Center is located near the 84 freeway. Dr. Jaquez is proud to provide certifications for qualified patients throughout the Hartford, Bloomfield, Manchester, Addison, Glastonbury, Farmington, Newington, New Britain, Berlin, Windsor Locks, Avon, Canton, Bristol, Southington, Vernon, Bolton, Middletown, Meriden, Waterbury, Torrington, Colchester, and Marlborough communities.
As a primary care clinic first and foremost, the three doctors and nurse staff of West Hartford Medical Center offer a comprehensive range of primary health services, including checkups, urgent care and specialist referrals among many others.
West Hartford lies within Hartford County as part of the greater Hartford, Connecticut metropolitan area. The city lies along the Connecticut River, and host to a large number of cultural and historical attractions. The Mark Twain House and Museum lie west of the 84 highway, and Downtown Hartford is host to the XL Center, of the AHL’s Wolfpack, and the XFINITY Theatre amphitheater that hosts many traveling outdoor music and comedy acts. The Connecticut Science Center offers over a hundred different exhibits for families to explore, while the Connecticut Convention Center provides riverside views for a variety of different hosted events. Across the river lies Rentschler Field Stadium, home of the University of Connecticut Huskies, and the Hartford-Brainard Airport and Trinity College lie further to the southwest. From the University of Hartford to River Highlands State Park, Dr. Jaquez and the West Hartford Medical Center proudly serve any qualifying Connecticut resident.

Dr Cory was fantastic and the whole process was super easy. Everyone in the office was very helpfull
I called and was able to speak to someone and get an appointment almost immediately. While the staff/nurses/whoever answers the phone are foreign and don't speak very good English (and are, generally, completely un-informative in terms of MMJ), Dr. Corey is very welcoming, friendly, and very understanding. While they had not received my medical records, I informed him that they were on the way and he was very understanding. Even though I know that every individual's experience differs, this man pretty much saved my life, for $200 cash. ***** Highly recommended *****
NOTE: There was a little bit of a wait (around an hour or so, and the parking in that area is not that great). Just a little information to make your experience easier!

I called to learn about their services and who they treat and the woman on the phone, who was hard to understand, told me to see a psych. dr. or go to a hospital for treatment! What!? What kind of facility is this anyway? I have a psychiatrist and therapist. I have been in and out of hospitals and intensive out patient therapy. I'm on meds and am looking for alternatives. I do not like their side effects.
