About 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, most notably cannabis-derived products. Now I have dedicated my medical practice to evaluations and ordering of medical marijuana products for patients suffering from qualifying conditions per Florida laws. 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.”
A native of South Carolina, Dr. Dorn holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Clemson University and Doctorates in Medicine and Dentistry from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. He has been a resident of Florida since 1994 and has been active in numerous medical missions to Central America for the last 20 years.
About Sasha Saidi, PA-C
Sasha Saidi works collaboratively with Dr. Dorn to provide cannabis education, as well as to thoroughly evaluate and treat each of their patients. She has completed extensive research in order to provide accurate and up-to-date information on how medicinal cannabis can be most beneficial for an individual’s unique medical history. From the beginning of her academic journey, Sasha has maintained a passion for holistic health that incorporates total body healing through wholesome nutrition and alternative remedies. She obtained her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutrition and Food Sciences and has recently received her Masters of Physician Assistant Studies from Lincoln Memorial University.
During her clinical education, Sasha came to know many individuals suffering from chronic and debilitating conditions for which traditional medicine provided frustratingly inefficient and short-term solutions. She discovered that traditionally trained physicians were often ill-informed of the proven benefits of certain “alternative therapies” which could genuinely help her patients, and has since been dedicated to providing Florida’s residents with individualized and compassionate cannabis care.
