For Dr. Khare, a former Chicago Cubs ER Physician, it’s all about the patients.
They inspired him to integrate medical cannabis into his practice.
“I had many patients who used only cannabis. When I asked them about their story, they told me how they had come off of opiates or benzos with cannabis,” Khare says.
“Then it became legal with medical cannabis, so I started certifying because of all the anecdotal stories. Then my own patients reduced their [dose of] opiates and benzos, and I was sold. I’ve been a believer since. Now the clinical research is catching up.”
Inside Dr. Khare’s clinic, you can say goodbye to your typical physician’s quiet, dusty old waiting room.
From the modern design to the genuinely kind and compassionate disposition of the staff, it became immediately clear this was not your usual doctor’s office.
Upstairs in the cannabis clinic, while waiting to see the doctor, patients engage in an interactive and dynamic experience in medical cannabis education.
They have the opportunity to ask questions and gain an intuitive understanding of the medicine by none other than Innovative Care’s own talented, charismatic and compassionate cannabis consultant: Heather Dayenian.
