I feel incredibly privileged to have joined a renowned clinic and to be able to work with such dedicated staff and colleagues.”

“I was initially really worried about the whole process as it was a brand new experience for me, but within minutes of speaking to Dr Ahsan I felt relaxed and assured – he really knows his stuff and I can’t fault the main flower he prescribed me. I felt he actually cared about my problems and actually wanted to help me. I will definitely be booking my follow-up with Dr Ahsan.” – J Walsh
“Dr Ahsan has been truly awesome. He is kind and has a wonderful uplifting approach – I feel lighter after I see him. He sees me as a whole person with a life and family, not just a list of conditions. Dr Ahsan understands my conditions and my symptoms and which cannabis flower is good for them. He has been able to also consider my physical health and what will help that too.
Importantly, I feel that were I to have a further mental health crisis, I would actually feel comfortable to ask Dr Ahsan for advice.” – D Queen
