About Our Practice
Dr. Loraine Glaser-Zakem
Director, Medical Marijuana Health Consultants
I am a native of Cincinnati and graduated from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in 1985. I am board certified in Internal Medicine and was in private practice for 5 years before spending the subsequent 23 years in various Emergency Departments throughout the Tri-State area. I also staffed two Urgent Care centers until this past year, which I chose to leave due to unreasonable demands of physicians to see too many patients per hour. I do not believe that to be in the patient's best interest.
My personal interest in mmj (medical marijuana) began with a family member who was able to break a 20-year addiction to Vicodin by using medical marijuana products. After extensive research in to the use of mmj, I found there are very few clinical studies with good methodology and most studies have had too few patient numbers to draw firm conclusions until recently. One of my goals in this practice, in addition to patient education, will be to participate in mmj clinical research trials.
My focus is on bettering patient’s lives through reduction of pain and anxiety, along with several other benefits of mmj such as neuroprotective qualities. I will tailor my recommendations to each patient's individual qualifying medical problem.
