Authorized by state to issue orders for medical cannabis

In November, 2016 residents of Florida overwhelmingly supported Amendment 2, which states that medical marijuana could be used to treat patients who have debilitating diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s, and HIV/AIDS.Dr. Craig Amshel is currently the only physician in South Shore on the state list maintained by the Office of Compassionate Use. Amshel, a colorectal surgeon specializing in gastrointestinal diseases, owns Absolute Surgical Specialists and presently practices in Sun City Center.
