Dr. Fortino is a leading expert in providing medical marijuana recommendations to Pennsylvania and New Jersey patients that qualify.

He stands behind the growing scientific evidence that supports cannabis use as a medical alternative for patients suffering from debilitating diseases and chronic pain as well as opiate addiction.
Dr. Fortino and his staff are committed to the medicinal value cannabis brings to holistic care. Serving as a Flight Surgeon in the Air National Guard since 2002, Dr. Fortino holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel with the 177th Air National Guard Fighter Wing. Along with his military service, Dr. Fortino is dedicated in his work and service to our nation's veterans.
