Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

For Patients


We usually obtain notes from your doctor prior to your visit, but encourage you to bring any medical documentation available to you. Please also bring the following:

  • Your medication list and the actual pill bottles for those medications
  • Test results including laboratory tests; please obtain the actual images (on a disc) for echocardiograms, angiograms, and stress tests
  • If you do not have some of this information and need to have any diagnostic testing performed, our clinic will help you set up appointments.


  • You will meet our heart failure team. We will review your history and records. You will learn about your condition, receive recommendations about dietary changes, and have medications adjusted.
  • Tests may include an echocardiogram, an EKG, defibrillator/pacemaker testing (if applicable), and blood draws to test kidney and liver function.
  • Your visit will typically last one hour or longer.
