Clinical Research Program:

Fishkind, Bakewell, Maltzman, & Hunter Eye Care is committed to providing excellent patient care and staying up to date with the advancement of medical technology and treatments. One of these ways is by participating in clinical trial research, which allows us to bring treatment options to Tucson and surrounding areas that might not otherwise be available to the public. Our physicians are continuously participating in FDA clinical trial studies as Primary Investigators.
