A Collective Goal

Deciding whether to participate in a clinical trial is an important and very personal decision. That is why the providers at Summit Medical Group and staff of Accellacare (formerly known as PMG Research of Knoxville) take every factor into consideration before recommending participation in cutting edge medical research. Our collective goal is to ensure that patients receive the very best care, while maintaining an active role in the development of new medications, medical devices and vaccines.
