CPM MMJ Centers Place Focus Back On Patients
DENVER – Feb. 15, 2011 – With its professional staff that take a personal approach to medicine, Compassionate Pain Management (CPM) holistic wellness and medical marijuana centers defy the usual stereotypes associated with the medical marijuana industry – and owner Shaun Gindi likes it that way.
“We want our patients to have a personal experience at CPM,” explains Gindi of the experience patients receive at CPM’s two locations in Louisville and Lakewood. “There’s a reason why it’s just you and your caregiver at CPM.”
Neatly dressed in slacks and shirts, caregivers greet patients and sit down with them to truly discuss their needs. While some medical marijuana centers treat patients as if they’re just another number on the medical marijuana registry, CPM realizes that the industry is only what its patients need. What patients need is attention, said Gindi.
“We want our patients to feel safe – privacy is our No. 1 priority,” Gindi explained. “If the patient is comfortable, then we’re comfortable. But only once the patient feels comfortable can we feel comfortable.”
The medical marijuana experience can be a foreign experience for the average patient. Colorado voters only authorized medical marijuana in 2000, and the rise of dispensaries in Colorado only really took off in the last two years. Gindi and his impressive staff of 26 employees understand this. That is why each patient is seen on a one-on-one basis by a caregiver who strives to keep the experience medical, certainly not recreational, like other dispensaries appear.
It’s not all OG Kush and NYC Diesel strains of medical marijuana at CPM’s two locations. There are actually over 20 strains between the two locations. But CPM also offers massage therapy, acupuncture, reiki practices, craniosacral therapy and pain management care plans in combination with herbs and essential oils.
CPM also hosts doctor days along with the Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of the Rockies (MMAPR). On Tuesdays at the Louisville location and Thursdays at the Lakewood location, CPM patients can meet with a medical doctor to address any concerns and needs they may have.
“For those struggling with disease and chronic pain, we aim to improve their quality of life,” explained Gindi. “When we see that we are reducing a patient’s suffering, and if we’re able to guide them towards overall wellbeing, then that is the greatest reward we as caregivers can ask for.”
