Here at Miami Dermatology & Laser Research, we have a robust, unique clinical trial company. We offer innovative, cutting-edge research trials- in some cases patients receive treatment free of charge or even are paid for their participation. We draw from our extensive database to provide our patients with the opportunity to participate in some of the most ground-breaking drug and device trials. Although we do these treatments in house, we have no control over the treatment/visit schedule, payments, or changes to the study course- these are all determined and controlled by the sponsoring company, Investigational Review Board (IRB), and FDA. Miami Dermatology & Laser Research will communicate everything to the patient but is not responsible for the study details or the changing needs of the company which may alter the above items. We want our patients to continue to have outstanding service and care while being some of the first patients in the world to have access to new and exciting medical and cosmetic therapies.
