Primary Care Research South

Ours is a work in progress for future care options

We are a personal sized Research Site in Southwestern Pennsylvania located in community with a large Family Practice. We started out as part of a Site Management Organization for 5 years and then became an independent site in 2011 due to the SMO's dissolution. We have continued because we enjoy the work we are doing and our relationships with research and our community. Our study load is kept very manageable which allows us the luxury of giving each study and it's study participants a great amount of attention. Our smaller organization size helps us have very quick turn around time with contract negotiations and regulatory submissions and we always use the central IRB. We are always striving to connect clinical trials to our community in order to make an impact on tomorrow's medical options for our patients and their families.
