An interview with Dr. Dushyant Singh (founder of Medical Cannabis Clinic Australia, an online clinic) – Health News Office

Medical cannabis clinic Australia is an online clinic founded by Dr Dushyant Singh to help Australians start on medical cannabis for their chronic medical conditions. We interviewed Dr Dushyant Singh to learn more about his Online clinic.

What inspired you to start up Medical Cannabis clinic?

I have a vast experience in Chronic disease management, and Very often, I come across medical conditions where conventional treatments have failed or causing significant side effects. Being from India, where there is evidence of the use of medical cannabis as one of the 1st medications in the world, I firmly believe this to be a great medication. And after the legalization of medical marijuana in Australia, every patient I have prescribed Medical cannabis the result has been better than my expectation each time.

We need to change the way we think about marijuana – not as a drug of addiction but as an outstanding therapeutic agent. Used judicially and responsibly under the guidance of doctors, the benefits for managing chronic medical conditions with our patients, are clear.

For me, being a medical cannabis prescriber has provided some of my most satisfying experiences as a doctor. The feedback from patients has been impressive:

I still have pain, but it doesn’t bother me now.”

I feel more motivated.”

I feel clearer in my head.”

I got my life back.”

Seeing medical cannabis alleviate the physical pain and mental suffering of patients is incredibly rewarding. Feedback like this is why we become healthcare providers.

What services do you offer?

Through my online medical cannabis clinic I offer eligibility assessment for medical cannabis, then help the patient select the type of product which can be dried flower, CBD oil, THC oil, CBD buccal spray and CBD crystal.  Once the treatment plan is decided, I offer patient education and they need to sign a written consent form. As a part of 1st appointment, I apply for government approval for medical cannabis.

After starting medical cannabis, then next is monthly follow up, its essential part of treatment.

What fees you charge and what is the cost of medical cannabis?

For the 1st consultation, my fees is $199 and monthly follow up cost is $89, the cost of medical cannabis can be up to $10/day. DVA and private health insurance are paying for medical cannabis.

Where do you get the medical cannabis from?

I only do consultation and its similar to any other medical consultation and I write scripts and send to the pharmacy who has the licence for dispensing, they can even post it to your address. The pharmacy order the medical cannabis from the local importers.

How does your online clinic work?

Patients can go to my  website https://canabliss.com.au  and on the appointment page they can select 1st consultation, pay the fee online, then it will give them the option to choose a date and time of consultation with me and a form to fill medical details. The patient gets confirmation details with a link for teleconsultation in their e-mail.

They get reminders before the appointment time.

During the consultation, I take further details needed for assessment for medical cannabis. Once prescribed, we have our team will contact each patient at a time interval of 1 week, three weeks and monthly after that for follow up.

I help patients with dose titration and once good results are achived I help them slowly wean off other medications.

Thank you Dushyant for sharing your thoughts with us!
