How We Started

When owner, Lauraine Kanders, founded Medical Marijuana Recs NY, all she wanted was to provide a pleasant, convenient and affordable telemedicine (online) service for patients in NYS who suffer from qualifying and severe conditions like: Chronic Pain, Cancer, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, HIV/AIDS, Spinal Cord disorders with spasticity, PTSD, ALS and MS.

Who is Lauraine Kanders?

Lauraine Kanders is a Board Certified Nurse Practitioner and NYS Medical Marijuana Practitioner with many years of experience in adult health care. Her inspiration for this business came about while working with her house call patients.

Today, Lauraine and her staff provide recommendations for certification and needed follow up of clients in the entire state via secure video-conferencing.

Lauraine is a big believer in the virtues she lives and works by — empathy, compassion, and kindness. She is here to support patients in getting the help they deserve as quickly as possible. She has strived to accomplish this in the most effective way possible.

Milestone of Over 600 Clients Assisted

Offering the latest in consultative telemedicine for medical marijuana certification is not enough. It is the personal touch and vision of a happy, at-ease patient that has set Medical Marijuana Recs NY a class apart. Lauraine and her staff follow up and work very hard with patients to ensure rapid progress with any prescriptive treatments.

Our unique approach has been very well received by patients. We are happy to announce that we have now crossed the HUGE milestone of having successfully served over 600 patients.

“This is yet another important milestone, and I am very pleased with the good results that we can see in the lives of so many clients, in addition to the growing volumes,” says Lauraine.

In an era of card mills and easy certification sites popping up all over the net, with their inherent risks for the unsuspecting patients, it is heartening to see some good practices setting the benchmark ahead of time when marijuana is federally legalized and becomes fully regulated.

“I have had a really wonderful experience working with Medical Marijuana Recs NY and Lauraine. She showed compassion, she listened to the details of my case, and was very knowledgeable about what may be the best route to take given my medical history. She also allowed for the flexibility I needed to find what truly worked for me rather than prescribing and assuming.

Pain management has to use a holistic approach and Lauraine definitely understands that.” (Female Patient)
