Medical Research

Take control of your treatment

As you make your way through the complicated maze of our healthcare system, you may feel like a lot of your questions are being left unanswered or your condition isn’t being thoroughly investigated.

We’re here to change that.

Our personalized reports are tailored exactly to your illness, situation and location and are designed to jump-start your medical education, teach you the language of your condition and help you get all of the answers you need

(If you need extra help, we can also communicate on your behalf with researchers and clinicians and set up appointments with hard to reach specialists.)

How does it work?

After an initial consultation and in-depth assessment, we’ll begin working on an individualized research project that provides peer-reviewed, up-to-date clinical information that can make a significant difference to your medical journey.

We can help with:

Searching, reviewing and explaining relevant academic and research literature from peer-reviewed journals and publications.

Researching the answers to all your questions in various clinical databases and across other peer-reviewed, science-based information sources.

Contacting researchers, physicians and experts around the world on your behalf.

Annotating key research findings into clear and easy-to-understand reports for your use with your medical team.

Compiling a detailed clinical trial search based on well-constructed parameters.

Producing a written, personalised, and fully-sourced report to make your journey through illness simpler.

Success Stories

We helped Emma when she said:

“I need help getting to the bottom of my medical mystery.”

When Emma’s neck pain started with a sudden, sharp pain, she went through the usual medical channels looking for a diagnosis and treatment.

By the time she contacted us, she had spent thousands of dollars looking for a diagnosis and treatment for her unrelenting and worsening symptoms. No longer able to work, she was desperate for answers.

Our Medical Director conducted an extensive, in-depth review of her medical records from birth to the present.  She investigated every clinical explanation that other doctors had offered. She wrote detailed clinical summaries for use with medical teams.  And through the meticulous work of review, research and exploration, we presented Emma with new diagnostic possibilities to present to her medical team.  We also investigated possible treatment plans and options.

After years of anguish and suffering, Emma was glad that she was several steps closer to an answer and beginning a treatment to end her pain.

We helped when Connie said:

“I need help finding specialists and treatment options for my rare condition.”

When Connie was lost researching the options of cryoablation and radiofrequency ablation, she turned to us for help.

After preparing a package with the latest academic and clinical findings, we began communicating directly with doctors and researchers on her behalf, helping her find specialists and treatment options.

As research continues, we regularly update Connie on any information on relevant medications and treatments.

Connie says, “They are professional and empathetic and have helped me find specialists and treatment options. They also send me updates on information they find about relevant medication and treatment. I will continue to work with them until the cure is found.”

We helped when Lou asked:

“What cancer trials are available to me?”

When the results of Lou’s post-chemotherapy diagnostic tests were unclear, Lou was unsure whether her ovarian cancer had progressed or not.

Wanting to prepare for any contingency, Lou asked us to research all clinical trials for which she might be eligible. Our Director of Medical Research conducted a meticulous clinical trial search, which he organized and annotated for Lou’s convenience.  

With an easy way to sort through the trials and decide a course of action, Lou now feels confident that she can plan for whatever lies ahead.
