Clinical Research

We are actively involved in more than 11 clinical research trials which are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). The purpose of these trials is to understand endocrine disorders better and to find new, innovative and safe therapies to help our patients feel better and prevent complications associated with their endocrine disorder. These trials are open enrollment for anyone interested in participating in clinical research, who meets the research criteria. Some clinical research trials provide: diet and exercise counseling, a glucometer and testing supplies, and /or lab tests at no cost to the participant. The participant may also be reimbursed for your time and travel.

We have 3 full time research coordinators. We are available 24 hours a day! We have over 24 years experience performing phase two and three clinical research. We are available by phone at 901-763-3636.
