The doctors of 420 MD (CA Medical Board #543457) pioneered safe and convenient access to legal medicine under Prop 215. Founded as a group of clinics across the Bay Area and Sacramento, the practice now focuses on telemedicine evaluations for renewals of our existing patients.
To ensure continued safety and convenience, the doctors closed all the storefront clinics to protect patients from phony clinics operating at 420 MD. The offices in Berkeley, Oakland, and Sacramento are permanently closed, and 420 MD is not seeing any new or existing patients at those locations. We are not accepting new patients at this time. Previous patients of 420 MD can have a renewal evaluation done online, via safe, private, and convenient video.
The practice was founded in the Bay Area by Dr. Charles Nordlinger, an experienced physician who saw the value of cannabinoids in treating a number of conditions. Prop 215 opened the door for 420 MD to offer evaluations and recommendations to safe and legal medicine. Dr. Nordlinger has been practicing medicine in the Bay Area and California since 1964. He still enjoys seeing patients and performing evaluations.
Dr. Laurence Badgley is the doctor managing the day to day of the practice. Dr. Badgley is a California licensed Medical Doctor interested in the clinical investigation of several chronic pain disorders, including Fibromyalgia, IBS, Endometiosis, TOS, TMJ, Migraines. His focus is diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from Chronic Pain Disorders. A graduate of Yale University School of Medicine, Dr. Badgley is an internationally recognized expert in his field, with decades of experience in the study and practice of natural therapies such as acupuncture and medicinal cannabis.
Our telemedicine platform is HIPPA compliant and offers safe and private access to our doctors to perform renewal evaluations for patients.
