Schedule an Appointment with Nurse Susan


Hello, and thank you for visiting Nurse Susan’s “Book an Appointment” page.

Making an appointment with Susan is your first step towards learning how cannabis can benefit a medical issue you are dealing with.

o   Chronic pain

o   Essential Tremor

o   PTSD

o   Menstrual cramps/discomfort

o   Weight loss/Weight gain

As with any treatment plan, discovering the right approach, products and dosing that works for you is a process. Your cannabis journey begins with education and assessment. Susan educates and consults with clients on:

  • The endocannabinoid system and how cannabis works in their body and is specific to their disease or issue
  • How to select safe and reliable products
  • The dosing process
  • The risks and benefits of cannabis
  • Identifying drug interactions and avoiding unwanted side effects
  • Understanding that cannabis is a treatment within a continuum of care which involves interacting components and being able to integrate cannabis with the client’s current treatment choices and lifestyle.

With this knowledge clients can make informed decisions about their cannabis regimen.

PLEASE NOTE – Unless you are already a cannabis or tobacco smoker, Susan rarely recommends smoking cannabis as part of a treatment approach. She will typically recommend vaping, sublingual sprays, oils, topicals, edibles or suppositories. She recommends both CBD and THC based products, depending on the condition. She is very sensitive to patients whom do not want to feel “high’ and makes a treatment plan accordingly.
