The experienced team of Dr. David Weiss and Dr. Jennifer Lytle at Clinical Trials of the Rockies strives to bring neuropsychiatric research and other clinical trials to the Denver area and have been providing research studies in Denver since 2008.  We have an outpatient office where people in good health and people with mental health, neurologic, and other medical concerns have the opportunity to enroll in studies.  Our study team provides research studies in Denver and consists of two board-certified psychiatrists, two seasoned study coordinators, and a recruiter, who will educate all potential study participants about the potential benefits and risks of volunteering for a study.  Some people consider enrolling in studies to try medications that may not yet be on the market, some enroll in order contribute to society, and others enroll for entirely different reasons.  There are participants who enjoy having the regular visits and the close monitoring that are provided at no cost by being in a study, but people who dislike regular visits may not find a study is ideal for them.

Deciding whether a study is right for you is a two-way street.  On the one hand, Clinical Trials of the Rockies in Denver strives to give you as much information as we can about the specific study you are considering and about the study process so you can decide if you are interested.  We give you the opportunity to talk with a study coordinator on the phone and a physician usually talks to you on the phone or in our office before you officially start in a study with us.  On the other hand, we will ask you detailed questions about your symptoms, past history, and treatments to determine from our prospective if you have the potential to benefit from and if you may qualify for a given study.  We put your safety first. 

Your information is confidential.  If you would like us to communicate with your medical providers or to discuss your study participation with a trusted family member or friend, we are happy to do so with your written consent.  We do not communicate with your insurance company as all medication and visits are provided as part of a study.  There may be financial compensation for time and travel for participation in Clinical Trials or the Rockies research studies.
