Best of the East Bay Express:
Dr Frank Lucido, Best Cannabis Physician

East Bay Express July 20-26, 2011, page 42:
"When a Winnebago pulls up in front of the Cow Palace in San Francisco on a sunny Saturday and unfurls a sign advertising "$45 medical marijuana recommendations or your money back," it's easy to see why some call the state's medical marijuana laws farcical. Sure, pot's less toxic than aspirin and 90 percent of presenting patients are "self-medicating" anyway. And, sure, almost none complain to the state medical board. But in an overweight country with skyrocketing health liabilities, there's something unseemly about a five-minute "doctor visit" that that requires no medical records. What if something was actually wrong with you? Berkeley family practitioner Dr. Frank Lucido is a rare specimen: the diligent physician who understands weed. Serving the East Bay since the 1970s, Lucido will recommend marijuana to qualified patients, but in a more professional process. Serious cannabis specialists like Lucido catch serious things, like, in one case, a lingering fatigue that's actually early thyroid cancer. An activist for both medical marijuana patients and physician rights, Dr. Lucido fights in court and in the press to normalize the maligned herbal remedy. So when your aging parent eventually needs some killer arthritis cream, it needn't involve Winnebagos."

"Open lawn" at Dr Frank Lucido's East Lansing/Williamston office
Sunday July 3, from 3pm-6pm

My office in Williamston/East Lansing area is in a rural setting with large lawn and frog pond,
Perfect place for a meet and greet over some light refreshments.
RSVP to or call 510-604-1511
(address given on RSVP or appointment)

Office hours:
Sunday July 3: 1pm-3pm
Monday July 4: 9am-11am
I then fly back to California July 4 afternoon,
returning to Michigan every 6 months: May and November

General info:
To schedule or to inquire about my fees and/or requirements, call my 877-787-6900 and leave message on the voice mail, with a number at which I can reach you.

I will be back each May and November for about 1 week to facilitate annual renewal.

IF NOT DUE FOR RENEWAL when I am in Michigan:
I'd be happy to do initial interviews and physical exams at no preliminary charge, but then would have done the required physical exam in person.
Only if and when you decide you want a recommendation from Dr. Frank within one year, would you be scheduled for the equally important and more time-consuming history-taking via phone interview and outside records review, and only then would the fee apply.
