Clinical Trials Experience

With over 18 years of experience conducting clinical trials, the Urology San Antonio Clinical Trials provides pharmaceutical study sponsors the high-quality, efficient data collection needed for FDA approval. Together, our certified Research Coordinators, Investigators and sponsors help develop better medications and treatments for patients around the world.

Conveniently located in central San Antonio with 4 additional private practice facilities, our centrally located Research facility conducts Phase I, II, III and IV clinical research studies. We not only fulfill but more often exceed enrollment goals to produce quality data for our sponsors. Our participants receive optimal patient care supervised by our onsite Principal Investigators. See the variety of Sponsors, Clinical Research Organizations (CRO) and Institutional Review Boards (IRB) we work with below.

“Urology San Antonio Clinical Trials has proven to be a valuable partner in our recent projects. Every member of the research team has shown great professionalism and responsiveness. We have been particularly impressed by how quickly they grasped our study requirements and even customized screening efforts for our studies.

They also were open to accommodate a few changes beyond the agreed scope to improve the quality of the study. Interim reports were shared periodically which helped us to review study outcomes, avoid misunderstandings, and therefore, achieve our goals.

We continue to be pleased with the contributions from this very capable site.

I highly recommend Urology San Antonio Clinical Trials as a reliable and trustworthy organization to conduct all types and phases of investigations, from initiation to completion.”
