“ My experience at REN Health was extremely positive. The office staff is very knowledgeable and kind. They were extremely organized and accommodating in helping me to get started on this journey. I was prompted to seek REN Health services because it is a facility that focuses on patients seeking the use of Cannabis as an alternative treatment. Dr. Bibikau was very thorough in his explanation of cannabis and its benefits, uses, and indications. He was able to plan a program that made it easy for me to choose from the various treatment options. He helped me to understand the program and to develop a positive relationship with cannabis that would be beneficial to my needs. Dr. Bibikau took ample time to answer the many questions that I had prior to getting started so that I was able to fully understand the implications of initiating a medical cannabis program. I would highly recommend this facility because of the great care and interest they take in their patient’s well-being. ”
