A doctor without borders

In a medical community still largely held back by antiquated ideas about medical cannabis, Dr. Karen Halliday is stepping forward.

Dr. Karen, as her cannabis patients know her, will be collocating at Seven Clover’s Nob Hill dispensary to help potential patients receive state medical cannabis cards.  Retired from her previous clinical work, she now maintains a practice focused on integrative health care, including movement, sleep hygiene, stress control and diet. She also has a particular interest in the potential of medical cannabis, which she saw help friends and family suffering with chronic pain and cancer.

“I was quite impressed by what they had to say and what it did for their issues,” Dr. Karen says. “I’ve been amazed and impressed by how it has helped people with fewer side effects [than pharmaceuticals].”

She says she is particularly optimistic about the potential for cannabis to take the place of highly addictive opioids for chronic pain treatment.

“Cannabis works better and has fewer side effects,” Dr. Karen notes. “[Cannabis patients] are people that are moved off the track of potential addiction.”

Access to Dr. Karen’s practice begins with her assistant, Tim, who will assess the patient’s potential to qualify for a medical cannabis card based on their medical complaints.  If the patient may qualify, Tim will make an appointment with Dr. Karen and let the patient know what documents they’ll need to bring to the appointment to get approval from the Department of Health.
