Client Testimonials

What People Are Saying

So here’s my personal story. Seven years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Yeah I know scary. Not a lot of cancer but still cancer. We’ve been monitoring it with biopsy’s and PSA tests. Two years ago I started vaping medical cannabis for a herniated disc pain in my neck. Well I don’t know how to explain my experience so I’ll get right to the point. My last two biopsies have resulted in no cancer diagnosed. 

Medical cannabis has changed my life for the better in so many ways. Physically, mentally, emotionally. I love every day. I’ll be enjoying medical cannabis until I’m pushing daisies.

I sure hope we see the day everyone will be given the opportunity to medical cannabis with no interference.

Make it a great day!

“DPC Team,
Dr. Dodson and his team have done the Lord’s work in saving me.  He never stopped working until I was healthy enough to return to work and become the good husband and father that I was before my injury”
Michael Hovan

Mr. Dodson explained everything thoroughly, gave support for my situations, and said medical cannabis was going to change my life for the better. I struggle with PTSD every day for 24.7 so having the sleep part of my life will be life-changing. The state just approved me. Thanks for the help! I recommend everyone who’s trying to get on it to go through Dodson.

What do I need to bring with me to the appointment?

You must bring photo identification to your appointment, which can be either a state-issued ID or a US passport. Since we require medical records prior to scheduling appointments, you are not required to physically bring in your medical records to the appointment, unless otherwise noted. You will be required to submit payment for your appointment either over the phone prior to the appointment, or by using a credit/debit/HSA/FSA card or cash at check-in.

What is the cost?

There are two separate transactions to be certified for Medical Cannabis in Minnesota:

Step 1: Physician Examination/Certification with Dr. Dodson is $200 for new patients. (We accept cash or credit/debit/HSA/FSA cards)

Step 2: State Registration is either $50 or $200 by credit card or check routing number payable to the Office of Medical Cannabis. (To qualify for the reduced fee of $50 for state registration you must present to the state a Medicaid Card, SSD letter, SSI letter, Minnesota Care Card, IHS card, VA Disability letter or CHAMPVA card)

At home, after your physician certification appointment you will have to complete the online state registration enrollment application which requires uploading the following to the Office of Medical Cannabis:


      • A government-issued ID showing proof of MN residency, such as your State of Minnesota ID or driver’s license.
      • If you do not have a MN ID or driver’s license, you will need to go to the MN DMV and update your ID. The state will then require you to present an old ID, temporary papers from the DMV, and a utility bill or rental receipt as proof that you are a current resident of MN.
      • A credit card to pay the non-refundable $200 Registration Fee (reduced fees of $50 are available for patients on Supplemental Security Income, Social Security Disability, Medicaid, MNCare, VA Disability, IHS or CHAMPVA, and must be uploaded to the state during state registration to qualify.) *Note that Medicare Cards are NOT accepted! *
      • Minors will be enrolled with a parent Minnesota ID and a birth certificate.
