Piney Medical Marijuana Doctor
Ozark MMJ Cards provides medical marijuana cards to residents of Piney, Arkansas. Piney is located a short distance west of Hot Springs, Arkansas, along the Ouachita Mountains. With a population of just under 4,000 residents, the small town is close to the charms of historic Hot Springs, but far enough away to give its residents a slower, more rural pace.
Because of its close proximity to Hot Springs, residents and visitors can enjoy the perks of easy access to the historic spa town and its many tourist attractions. Bathhouse Row is a collection of bathhouses, gardens, and related structures located on the four parcels of land in the center of Hot Springs. The buildings are a variety of architectural styles including neoclassical, renaissance-revival, Spanish and Italianate. Hot Springs boasts 47 natural hot springs, with several located on Bathhouse Row. Unlike many mineral springs, they lack the odor of sulphur, which has made visiting the springs appealing to visitors for hundreds of years.
Hot Springs National park offers 26 miles of hiking trails with stunning views and lovely forest scenery. The park also offers 40 camping sites for those who wish to spend more time enjoying the beauty of the area. Horse racing at Oaklawn Park, a famous American thoroughbred racetrack and casino, is also enjoyed by residents and visitors to Piney. Across the Ouachita River and less than eight miles away lies Magic Springs, the area’s main amusement and water park. Garvan Woodland Gardens is a 210-acre botanical garden owned by the University of Arkansas. Garvan Woodland Gardens endeavors to protect and celebrate the unique Ouachita Mountain environment while providing a venue for education, research, and cultural enrichment. The gardens, landscapes, and structures are exceptionally designed and maintained for the enjoyment of the community and its visitors.

The Ozark MMJ Card process: a potential patient will submit the patient information form found on our website and upload a record of a qualifying condition. Within one business day, the patient will receive a phone call to schedule a concierge appointment. Visits generally take about 15 minutes, but extra time is reserved so the doctor is able to answer any questions the patient may have. Upon conclusion of the certification, the patient will receive the Physician’s Written Certification required for a State-issued medical marijuana card. We guide every patient through the process of applying with the state of Arkansas, once you have received your medical recommendation from Ozark MMJ Card’s concierge physician.
For patients without documentation of a qualifying condition, an appointment will need to be scheduled with our concierge service to confirm qualification before proceeding with medical marijuana card certification. Per HIPAA regulations, any information obtained between a physician and a patient in a bona fide medical arrangement is completely confidential and private. This is known as Protected Health Information and a third party can only obtain it with the written consent of the patient. Qualification is not guaranteed. Qualifying is based on the doctor’s determination, qualifying conditions, and a patient’s complete medical history.
Ozark MMJ Cards (Arkansas Medical Marijuana Cards) was founded by Dr. Daniel Whitelocke to ensure patients receive quality care and have access to alternative medicines including medical cannabis. After extensive research on the benefits of medical marijuana card programs in other states, Dr. Whitelocke decided he wanted to help patients by offering affordable medical cannabis card certifications.
