Laveen Country Doctor is a naturopathic primary care clinic located in Laveen, AZ. We specialize in treating chronic conditions dealing with pain and somatic dysfunction. Dr. Runbeck is well known and respected in both Laveen and in the naturopathic medical community at large. He has been honored by his peers for his dedication and service in 2002, 2007, and 2012. Dr. Runbeck does not prescribe narcotics because they are so dangerous. He believes that marijuana is usually a safer and more efficacious approach to treating chronic pain, spasms, or any one the qualifying conditions listed in the law, than the standard pharmaceutical drugs that are currently available.
An evaluation at our clinic for medical marijuana certification takes about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes.

The fee for this service is $95, and should you decide to become a regular patient at our clinic we will give you a $20 discount on your next visit.
