Dr. Dale Buckman, DNP

Dale Buckman is an expert in the field of cannabis therapeutics. She is a board-certified nurse practitioner who embodies a functional and lifestyle approach to health and well-being. She emphasizes nutrition and lifestyle changes as it relates to our bodies homeostatic ability resulting in a more balanced pathway to wellness. After learning about the endocannabinoid system, Dale has integrated medical cannabis into her practice and has witnessed excellent results. She sees her patients as biopsychosocialspiritual beings and lives her life in accordance with these principles.   

After working in internal medicine, Dale recognized that many patients did not fit into the traditional treatment model or were offered pharmaceuticals when lifestyle interventions or a more natural approach would have been the more appropriate route. She believes patients deserve to be equal partners in their quest to reach optimal health, and that a person’s day-to-day life choices and habits are crucial to success. From her many years of health coaching she has found there is no substitute for having in-depth conversations with patients about their health concerns, challenges and goals. Often, small adjustments in diet and lifestyle result in fewer medications and a higher quality of life.   Dale is a graduate of Boston College where she earned academic excellence being inducted into the international honor society for nursing, Sigma Theta Tau. She has practiced as a board-certified massage therapist and Reiki master for the past 15 years and uses her skills as an energy healer to connect with patients on a more spiritual level.
