Your Visit

Our multidisciplinary team will help to determine if you qualify for one of our open clinical trials. We will first obtain records from your main oncology hospital and determine if you should come for a clinic visit. If so, we will coordinate an initial consultation with one of our specialists, often within several days of the initial referral.

At your initial visit, you will learn about potential clinical trial options, including a discussion of the potential risks, benefits, and alternatives of trial participation. If you choose to participate in a clinical trial, we will then make arrangements for any special testing needed before you can join the trial. As much as the study rules allow, we try to coordinate your care so that you can continue to have tests and visits closer to home with your main oncology hospital.

Our social workers can help coordinate lodging and transportation to UCSF. We partner with Family House to provide no- or low-cost housing for pediatric patients who live more than 50 miles from San Francisco.

Our clinic is located at 1825 4th Street, near the AT&T Park in San Francisco.
