In general, most individuals participating in clinical studies report a positive experience. A survey conducted by CenterWatch found that 52% of individuals who participated in a clinical trial rated their experience as “Excellent,” while 34% rated their experience as “Good”. When asked about the quality of care they received, 89% of individuals reported “Good to Excellent”.

Every clinical research study is different. Which means the requirements and restrictions for each study will vary. You will receive specific restrictions, requirements and a copy of our participant policies at your physical visit. Below are generic questions and are not specific to every trial.
