Takoma Wellness Center opened their doors on August 1, 2013 in memory of Jules and Libby Reifkind; the parents of Stephanie Kahn(Founder of Takoma Wellness Center). The Reifkinds grew up in Washington DC and Jules only lived a few blocks from what would become Takoma Wellness Center. In the early 60’s, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and spent years looking for relief, as there was no medication that could help him.
The first and longest continually open dispensary in Washington DC. we tell our patients this story so they know how personal this is to us. That were not corporate nor hold a corporate mindset. We want every single patient to have the best experience possible here. We are carrying on the legacy of Stephanie’s parents. It’s not about the dollar value, it’s the value we receive knowing that we are helping those who really need it.
