Dr. Anu Anand is the overseeing physician at Compassionate Certification Centers (CCC) in Butler.
“Our goal is to provide alternate treatment through medical marijuana to help alleviate patients’ symptoms and improve their overall quality of life,” Dr. Anand said in an interview.
Dr. Anand says patients don’t a referral from their primary care physician before coming to CCC, but there will need to be a conversation about their past treatment options.
“We will go through their medical records, review what they’ve taken and determine if they’re a good candidate to receive medical marijuana,” she said.
Dr. Anand said she is most excited to offer an alternate method of pain treatment to the residents of Butler County.
This is Dr. Anand’s first venture into the field of medical marijuana but through her specialty of physical medicine and rehab, she says she’s always looking for safer alternative for pain management, especially due to the ongoing opioid epidemic.
“I do a lot of work with MS patients, ALS patients, stroke patients and a lot of chronic pain management,” she said. “Through my profession, we are always trying to figure out safer alternatives for pain control.”
Compassionate Certification Centers is located at 127 East Cunningham Street in Butler.
