The chair in front of my desk is where some of my hardest conversations take place. Yet it is also where some of the most inspiring and hopeful moments of my career happen. All my patients at one time or another have sat in “the chair.” We talk about their diagnosis, their treatment options, test results and always, we talk about the patient’s option to participate in clinical trials.
