Nothing but a perfect experience for a few years now.

Dr. Caplan is thorough and well informed on many topics surrounding medial cannabis. He is up to date with current research and closely follows the cannabis industry in the state.

He always makes sure I have time for any questions...

Great Experience!

Obtaining an appointment was easy and fast.

All paperwork is digital, did it all from home.

Got into the office around lunchtime and was seen right away.

Staff was very friendly, courteous, not intimidating.

So much more to medical cannabis than I ever knew

CED clinic is not the least expensive choice, and I was hesitant at first, because I didn't understand what added value there was to this kind of doctor, except to get the card. I had heard there was a Dr Tischler and a Dr Uma who charge much...

Dr Caplan is the 4th cannabis doc I've seen in MA, and I"ve seen a bunch more in California. I've never seen anyone else as informed and passionate about educating patients. I did a bit of "mystery shopping" when I first came. I didn't let on that...
