Medical Marijuana Therapy Available Now

Dr. Elaine Burns, NMD, has added professional staff and allocated additional resources to her Phoenix and Scottsdale Southwest Medical Marijuana Evaluation Centers to apprise clients of the benefits of medical marijuana therapy.

“From pediatric patients to the elderly with conditions ranging from seizures, including epilepsy, to agitated Alzheimer’s and even cancer, the tidal wave of interest has encouraged us to expand our team so I may offer more in-depth consultation time with patients as needed,” she says. Burns is the first person in the state of Arizona to pass the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine Physician certification test.

Dr. Toni Vaughan will practice alongside staff physicians including state licensed naturopathic medical doctors Sandra Olic, Miriam Peachy and others. Burns, medical director of the centers, explains that heightened national media coverage has attracted a wide and diverse range of case referrals.

Locations: 8010 E. McDowell Rd., Ste. 105, in Scottsdale, and 12620 N. Cave Creek Rd., Ste. 7, in Phoenix. For more information, call 480-656-2119 or visit
