About Us


Blue Lotus is a Nurse Practitioner owned practice that’s focuses on recognizing the need for an alternative holistic treatment or to augment with traditional medicine in an effort to improve quality of life.  We emphasize the need to treat each patient as individuals, devoting the time and education needed to make an informed decision, while designing a treatment plan to address your specific needs.  Our goal is to establish an open, trusting and long-standing relationship with every individual patient. We offer a patient-friendly experience combined with a simple clear process to obtain a medical marijuana card from the comfort of your home. I would like to thank you for the privilege of allowing me to care for you.
