Due to interpersonal variability, cannabis medicine needs to be prescribed by a specialised doctor who can monitor each patients individual needs. Dr James Connell is an authorised prescriber of cannabis medicines for select conditions which negates the need to apply to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for approval.
Dr “Jim” is highly experienced in completing these applications, and has done so for a large number of successful applications. If any further information is needed from TGA, Dr Connell can act on his patients behalf to ensure the correct details are given and to make the process seamless and straightforward for his patients.
Dr James Connell provides lifestyle medicine advice, which offers a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to the prevention and regression of chronic and lifestyle-related diseases by changing social, environmental and behavioural factors.
Dr Connell believes in a team based approach to treatment. He enjoys working alongside allied and complimentary medicine providers and communicating with other doctors in the patients healthcare team. He feels best results are achieved when cannabis medicines are paired with lifestyle interventions.
