Dr. Altvater Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Altvater Jr "After several years of practicing Anesthesiology in 2013 I took a dramatic career change into Cannabinoid Medicine and formed Delta 9 Medical Consulting. I see patients every day with a variety of conditions that are either not well addressed by traditional western medicine or traditional therapy is not right for the individual seeking care. I have spent countless hours learning about Cannabis as a medicine - and find it an exciting field - truly the last frontier I will be involved with in my lifetime. I find like most things some of what is known and unknown are very broad in scope - but with an open mind a person can make their own decision if cannabis is right for them. I enjoy working in concert with referring physicians if they like - we can help develop a comprehensive plan of care that involves cannabis as a symptomatic therapy and in some cases a potential disease modulator. If Medical Cannabis interest you or a family member and you live in Massachusetts please contact our office."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Altvater Jr "Almost every day patients come and tell us how their primary doctor would not discuss Medical Cannabis with them.  That's because 99% of physicians in America have no knowledge of cannabis other than what they have heard from Addiction Medical Specialist or Law Enforcement.  

At Delta 9 Medical Consulting we can give you a more rounded explanation of Cannabis and it's potential to help you along with how it could be potentially harmful.  We want you to be informed about this "new" medical therapy."

Dr. Altvater Jr Says:

I welcome comments by Verified Patients - if you go to Patient Fusion's website you will find over 150 such evaluations.  Health Grades and others have no way of assuring patients that the evaluations are from actual patients or from false patients - you should keep that in mind when you review anyones profile.
