| Medici Healthcare
Dr. Mauricio Consalter is an internal medicine MD with a large practice across the state of Illinois. Founder of Medici Health Care in 1999, he has been dedicated to providing compassionate, personalized, one-on-one medical care to each and every one of his patients. Dr. Consalter has been certifying patients for the medical cannabis program across Illinois since 2015, and has found cannabis to be a safe and effective alternative and complementary medicine. Nearly all of his patients with a regular cannabis regimen have seen a reduction in the use of opioids and benzodiazepines, driving him to commit his career to helping as many people as possible access the plant safely.
Currently, Dr. Consalter serves about 12,000 patients in 6 different communities across Illinois with his cannabis-based internal medicine/family practice. These patients present with a variety of conditions ranging from mental health disorders to chronic pain. His main goal is to target the specific strains of cannabis that will most effectively treat these patients’ conditions. He has been a keynote speaker at several health conferences in the Midwest discussing the endocannabinoid system, and is presently working with the Brazilian congress to facilitate the implementation of a medical cannabis program in their country.
Dr Consalter graduated from Universidade Catolica Do Parana in Brazil in 1995. He was among the Internal Medicine Residency Chief Residents at the University of Illinois Chicago during his time there. He spent 5 years teaching internal medicine at UIC and was awarded an A.A. Goldsmith award for the most compassionate doctor of the year in 2000. He was internationally published in 2010 regarding his work with biopolymers for wound care and wound healing. His current patients have offered countless reviews citing his compassion and knowledge of their conditions and the applications of medical cannabis.
