For Pharmaceutical Companies

For over twenty-five years, Dr. Michael Burnette and Dr. Joel Silverfield have been committed to improving the health of their patients by conducting quality research with attention to detail.  With high ethical standards and superior staff, our research team has worked with some of the industry's best known companies, organizations and laboratories.  We are highly motivated and are passionate in working with you on enrollment.  The retention rate of patients on past studies is among the highest in the industry. We offer vast experience for advertising in our local media market and have relationships with radio and TV stations as well as major print publications.

Our Clinical Research Department has Phase I, II, III, and IV capability.  We have principal investigators on site at all times and have an exhaustive database of patients with arthritis and related diseases, obesity, chronic pain, osteopenia, osteoporosis, insomnia, depression, hypertension, menopause symptoms, hypercholesterolemia, asthma, SLE, fibromyalgia, diabetes, and more.  Our staff, many of whom hold CCRC credentials, is highly qualified and experienced in infusion therapy.  We work with several centralized IRB's for rapid and appropriate approval and are experienced in electronic data collection and transfer.

Our colleague, Julio Gonzalez-Paoli, MD, is conducting clinical trials at his St. Petersburg office.  As a board certified rheumatologist, he is able to offer patients access to clinical trials for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, osteoporosis, and gout.  Some trials will be available at multiple locations.
