Caring Patient Advocates
Dr. Jessica Collins McCain
I’m Dr. Jessica McCain, a native to Fort Pierce and a Family Practice physician. I returned to my hometown and family out of pride and the desire to help my community. The healthcare world is getting more complex at every turn, and it takes a lot of time and effort to keep up with advances in science and public policy. Since the Amendment 2 passed with 71% agreement, resolving that medical marijuana is a viable treatment for many people’s ills, I have been working hard to learn more about this topic for my patients in need. I realized that there are many people who would benefit from this option, and became co-founder of Southern Comfort Marijuana Clinic. I hope that you find what you are looking for, whether it only be for information or access to the medicine through our clinical services. – JCM
