Because of his passion for discovering game-changing therapies for chronically ill patients, he established Optimed Research in 2006, a free-standing, dedicated research site located in central Ohio. That single site has grown into an Integrated Network of sites managed by Optimed Research. The network consists of physicians from various specialties located across the country from Hawaii to New Jersey. Specialties include Allergy/Immunology, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Rheumatology, Psychiatry, Pediatrics and more. This model leverages the strength and experience of Optimed Research with the clinical expertise of its physician partners.

Altogether, Dr. McNeil and the Integrated Network have conducted hundreds of groundbreaking research studies.
