Center Overview

River Birch Research Alliance, LLC is an independent clinical research company established in 1992. We specialize in conducting and managing clinical trial studies. Our company collaborates with several major and up-and-coming institutions in the pharmaceutical industry, to bring the best and newest drug therapies to market. Over the years, River Birch Research has developed a reputation of excellence and trust by exceeding our enrollment goals and by completing high quality work in investigational medical studies in the areas of: cardiovascular, gastroenterology, endocrinology, musculoskeletal, infectious diseases, rheumatology and dermatology. In particular, our rich experience in certain therapeutic areas have made us a leader, for example, in Diabetes, COPD, Osteoarthritis or Chronic Pain, Hypertension and other studies.

Our investigators and staff have carried out hundreds of clinical trial studies, some with over 20 years of experience in the field of Clinical Research. With the expansion of our physician team, we hope to bring new studies that benefit our growing patient community in areas of women's health, sports medicine, depression and anxiety, asthma and hormone deficiencies. RBRA's success is driven primarily by the quality of care offered to our patients by our physicians, clinical and nursing staff. We welcome you to come and visit us, and learn with us, as we strive to bring better health to the greater north Georgia community.
