When people pass through our office, many point to the staircase and ask, “What goes on down there?” First of all, no it’s not a dungeon. Downstairs at ICLS is the home to our very own Clinical Research department, which is headed by Ginny and Jenny. Sometimes we wonder if that is really their names, or if they just do that to confuse us! But after sitting down with these two hard working ladies, it is evident that there are a lot of misconceptions about what Medical Research or Clinical Trials are all about. Many people think about white lab coats, sterile environments and unapproved medical procedures. While there are many different types of clinical trials, we hope to clear the air about what actually happens downstairs at ICLS.
Working in conjunction with both Dr. Sapra, our Dermatologist and Dr. Khanna, our Plastic Surgeon, it makes sense that common themes arise in the types of trials that are being performed. Trials from past and present include cosmetic treatments for deep wrinkles, various types of fillers, Zeltiq for fat reduction (sadly this trial is over), acne and psoriasis. Ginny and Jenny are an amazing team and provide a warm and inviting atmosphere for all of their many patients! They welcome any inquiries about upcoming trials and are happy to answer any questions. 905-842-2262 x. 225 or 243 firstname.lastname@example.org
