What our patients are saying about HRHR…
“Dr. Fisher is a fine, caring person, has a wonderful personality, good sense of humor, and a very good physician. He takes ‘TIME’ with the patient, and ‘listens’ to my feedback. He discovered a spinal problem…and helped me a great deal to find a neurosurgeon, and be treated. My P.C.P. was totally useless. Thank God for Dr. Fisher…”

How important is Clinic Research really?
Behind every medicine and intervention that people have ever taken, are thousands of patients who have volunteered to participate in clinical trials, which have led to many breakthroughs in disease prevention and treatment in the last half-century. Without the willingness of these individuals, many would have suffered.
Ultimately, because “every medicine or medical device must be fully vetted through closely monitored and highly regulated clinical trials to insure their safety and effectiveness,” patients receiving medical care should be encouraged to participate in clinical trials. For those people who participate in clinical trials, they are the heroes that are helping to develop the new drugs, devices, biologics, and treatments for the future, and improving the care of all Americans.
Health Research of Hampton Roads has been on this journey for 20 years now, and we believe we’re making life better for those that suffer from incurable conditions. We’re looking forward to another 20 years with our community and the chance to end the scourge of currently incurable diseases. We’d love for you to join us on this journey.
