Clinical Study Participation

Deciding to participate in a clinical study is a choice that must be made after educating oneself about clinical studies and determining if you are a candidate for research.

The most important aspect of clinical research studies is the health and well-being of our patients. It is our belief that an informed patient is a happier and healthier patient. That’s why our focus is on keeping you informed, answering your general questions about clinical research, and answering specific questions about our site and our trials.

Participating in a clinical study is an important decision and should be thought through carefully. Finding the right trial often brings up many questions, which is why we have devised a list of topics to help resolve these concerns and further educate participants.
