Thank you for that additional information.

As a retina specialist I have a number of patients with multifocal choroiditis and, unfortunately, there is no documented benefit in patients with multifocal choroiditis who use THC.

Of course, your GP is within her rights to drop you and refer you to a pain management specialist for all your future prescriptions.

It probably would have been a good idea to explain to your doctor why you wanted to use THC and make sure she was OK with that plan before you went down that road.

So. At this point what can you do?

Contact a different pain management MD.

Does this make sense to you?

I realize that this was not the answer you were hoping to hear but it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.

Surely, you prefer that I tell the truth rather than what you wish to hear. Because it reflects very poorly on me unless you press one of the top three feedback choices, keep this in mind when rating my answer and please do not punish me for being honest. I understand that this may not be easy to hear, and I empathize.

Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the excellent feedback button so that I can receive credit for my efforts.
