A natural & alternative approach with Dr. Pinto

Why Medical Marijuana?

Vive has always been at the forefront of medical wellness through our weight loss program and our skin care and medical aesthetics program. Staying true to our mission, we have decided to expand our wellness services to now include the NJ Medical Marijuana Program, a treatment program offering a more natural, alternative approach to treating common issues such as anxiety, migraine headaches, painful periods, chronic pain and more.

Dr. Pinto is certified by the state to evaluate and treat using medical marijuana and cannabis and is offering consultations. The program is open to new and existing patients of Vive. We will be offering all our visits virtually using telehealth either by phone or through Zoom
