Clinical trials FAQ

Medical research relies on information obtained from clinical trials. Your decision to volunteer for a clinical trial should be discussed with your family physician and family members before proceeding. Below are some commonly-asked questions regarding clinical trials. For more information, please call our office in West Palm Beach at (561) 600-4848.

What are clinical trials?

Clinical trials are controlled tests. The medical industry uses this method to determine the safety and effectiveness of certain drugs, cosmeceuticals, and devices. Clinical trials give doctors information necessary to develop better treatment regimens with improved patient safety, as new medications and techniques are introduced.

Why be part of a clinical trial?

New advances in treatments are discovered and perfected through clinical trials. As a participant, you have access to these innovative treatments before they become available to the public.

Beer Dermatology
Rating : 5 5 Stars
I have been a patient of Dr.. Beer for several years. I’ve had Mohs surgery, as well as minor spot removals and biopsies. Two weeks ago, we saw him for an emergency skin condition that my husband had. We were given an appointment immediately, seen . a biopsy taken and sent to the University of Pa. for study. Dr. Beer called us himself with the results, as well as calling our primary care physician to discuss my husband’s case. The follow-up care was excellent. We fully recommend Dr. Beer. “
