From the Physicians at The Dermatology Clinic:
At The Dermatology Clinic, our goal is to provide the best possible care for patients. Sometimes it’s as easy as writing a prescription or giving a shot — other times the best treatment is still in development. That is why clinical studies are so important. Without clinical studies, it would be impossible to develop new medicines and cures.
Clinical studies offer more care options for our patients suffering from common, unique, and rare health conditions. This is especially helpful for patients who struggle to find effective therapies currently on the market. In short, clinical studies help us deliver better care to our patients.
The Dermatology Clinic partners with Meridian Clinical Research. Together, we run clinical studies to help develop better treatments for the patients we see, and for people worldwide.
If we believe a study is right for you, someone from our office or Meridian may call you. As physicians, we fully support the clinical studies you are contacted about. We encourage you to consider participating if you are contacted.
Clinical study treatments are available at no cost. You may also receive compensation for participating. Our clinical studies are held to incredibly high standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Meridian. Every effort is made to ensure your safety during a study. If you ever have a question about the study process or currently open studies, ask us next time you visit our office or simply call Meridian at (225) 768-2850.
Participating in a clinical study is always optional — regardless of what you do, we will continue to provide excellent traditional dermatologic care as we have since 1947. To support great leaps in medicine, we support clinical research. We hope you will, too.
