"Dr. Kerwin and Jennifer Vo are two of the most knowledgeable, compassionate and professional people I have ever met. Alzheimer's is something that has unfortunately affected my family members. I cannot say enough about these two healthcare professionals, as they have devoted so much of their time and lives to finding a cure for Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. They are always on the forefront of research, working diligently to find a way to end the continuing threat of this dreaded, and thus far, incurable disease. With these two dedicated professionals giving their all, I have hope a time will come where we will find comfort in the promise for treatment, instead of a life without our thinking and emotional skills. I highly recommend Kerwin Medical Center."
"From the beginning of our participation in the research we have always looked forward to our monthly visit. The doctor and her entire staff are very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. We look forward to our future monthly infusions that seem to have slowed down the effects of Alzheimers and to visit with the doctor and her staff."

Dementia refers to a decline in cognition, one’s ability to think, recall, and reason, to the extent that the loss interferes with normal daily life. There are many types of dementia, and each type can result from a different underlying cause. Once a cause is identified, the type of dementia can be diagnosed. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia.
Clinical trials or clinical research, are the means the scientific and medical community use to ensure that treatments are safe and effective for their prescribed purpose. The treatments available in clinical trials represent the world’s best hope for a cure, and the patients who choose to participate in clinical research hold the key that will one day unlock the secrets of a cure.
Yes. All new treatments must be compared to a placebo to ethically ensure the treatment is truly effective. During the trial, the staff our patients work with do not know if a patient is on a placebo or the new treatment to ensure that all patients receive the same quality of care on each visit and throughout the trial.
No. Your current medication and treatment regimen will remain under the direction of your doctor, and will not be disrupted by participation in a trial.
Deciding to participate in a clinical trial is an important decision, and should not be made without first talking to your doctor and family. We are here to answer any questions that arise as you make your decision.
