The research department at Psychiatric Associates has been conducting clinical trials in General Psychiatry and Child /Adolescent Psychiatry since 1999. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) ADHD/ADD, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Panic Disorder, Tourette's Syndrome and Headache. Since the Principal investigator and Sub-investigator are Board Certified in Child/ Adolescent Psychiatry as well as Adult Psychiatry, they can see a wide range of ages.

The mission of the Psychiatric Associates research department is to conduct clinical studies within the guidelines of Good Clinical Practice, obtain reliable, quality data and promote public awareness of research in mental health. Sponsors and monitors who have worked with us are impressed with our documentation and attention to detail, our prompt response to queries, and our efforts to adhere to the protocol. We enroll subjects who meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria of the protocol and who are deemed reliable, in a timely fashion. The average subject completion rate for our site is approximately 85%, with many studies having 90 to 100% completion rates. Marketing efforts are tailored to suit each protocol, making subject retention efficient and productive. Our clinicians are well regarded in the community and offer outreach programs that not only benefit the community, but also make the site's programs highly visible and accessible to those interested.
