What our patients are saying about HRHR…

“The staff at the research center are wonderful. They are very attentive, friendly, and very helpful. The treatment seemed to have helped me somewhat, but not entirely; however, I hope they continue on the research and find better results in the future with other candidates. This has been a good experience.”

“The staff was always ready to answer any questions I might have had and was very pleasant.”

“Enjoyed being part of the study and hope it aids research being conducted in the area of the study.”

Danielle Marie, BAPatient Recruiter

Clinical Research is vital to the production and improvement of medical treatments and devices for the future. Without volunteers for these clinical trials, there is no advancement. We truly appreciate the sacrifice of each of our patients, and we recognize their health and safety as the most important factors. Our team of professionals treat each patient with care and compassion. There is no time limit when it comes to making sure they thoroughly understand and all of their questions are answered. HRHR is a wonderful environment for both our team and our patients. Come see us soon!

clinical trials for women exclusively

Women’s Health

Women have certain exclusive health concerns – breast cancer, cervical cancer, menopause, and pregnancy. In addition, depression and anxiety exhibit more frequently among female patients. Urinary tract conditions present more often in females, and sexually transmitted diseases can cause more harm to women.

Therefore we conduct clinical trials that are exclusive to women, and for more information on these trials contact us.

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 over 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.
