Dr. Joseph Dorn

“I have 20 years of medical practice in general medicine, having spent the last 12 years as a hospice/palliative medicine physician. Providing care for terminally ill patients using prescription narcotics and other addicting traditional medications, which were often less effective with many side effects, caused me to consider alternative treatments. The use of such products is based on credible medical studies that have been conducted on thousands of patients throughout the world during the last few decades.”

“[Among my patients] the average age was 53 years old,” Dorn said. “They were suffering from a number of conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. Some are HIV patients and a number of them are cancer patients. Most of them have been on opioids either recently or sometime in the past and are looking for a safer alternative and a more effective alternative.”

Tallahassee Democrat  /  Jeffrey Schweers  /  Nov. 23, 2016
“I saw a need where few physicians were interested in being qualified doctors to order this,” Dorn said. “I couldn’t perform that function while being medical director. I decided to go back to direct patient care, that’s my strong point.”
