Real Research

Research is central to improving cancer patient outcomes, and most legitimate cancer doctors are involved in it. Our doctors participate in cooperative groups, nationwide organizations of cancer doctors dedicated to progress in cancer treatments. These groups, using the most up-to-date information, develop studies comparing the best cancer treatments. In addition, we work with major pharmaceutical companies to accumulate data on their products prior to FDA approval so that our patients can sometimes receive new treatment innovations before they are in general use.
