Center Overview:

Eastern Research Inc. is a dedicated site that has been enrolling patients since 2003.  We aim to promote investigative efficiency and patient comfort, as clinical trials are the source of medical progress.

Research experience:

For 16 years we have conducted trials of all sorts. From hypertension and osteoarthritis to crohns and gout. Throughout this time, we have had the pleasure of working with several sponsors/CROs. We always try to meet enrollment and, many times, far exceed it. Our screen failure rate is also usually below 10%.

Staff expertise:

Our hardworking and friendly staff consists of Katy Leal CRC, Marlene Quintana CRC, Raquel Gonzalez as clinical director, and Evert Gonzalez CRC. All of us have been working with research for over 16 years.  Our site has a rapid turnaround time on CTAs and budgets. In addition, we all speak both English and Spanish.

Patient demographics:

Although we are able to recruit all kinds of patients, our database predominantly includes middle aged Hispanic individuals. Eastern Research Inc. is located in the middle of a popular multicultural area. We recruit our subjects through our computerized database, radio, TV, newspaper, referrals, social media and from our physicians' private practices.
