Improving Quality of Life for our Patients

Improving the quality of life for our patients

In the fall of 2008, Dr. Charles Brownlow founded Better Health Clinical Research, a sister company to Georgia Pain & Spine Care. His primary reasons for starting a clinical research site were to make cutting edge treatments available to his patients and the surrounding community, contribute to the advancement of medical science, and assist in the development of novel therapies for pain management. BHCR contracts with national and international pharmaceutical and medical device companies to conduct FDA-mandated clinical trials of investigational new drugs, new or modified medical devices, and existing drugs for new indications or populations. We recruit eligible participants from Dr. Brownlow’s pain management practice, referring local physicians, and advertising. Our participation in many area health fairs and charitable events not only raises awareness for our currently enrolling studies but also gives us a chance to give back to the community we serve. Since our inception in 2008, Better Health Clinical Research and Dr. Brownlow have conducted numerous industry-sponsored clinical trials in therapeutic areas including Cancer Pain, Chronic Low Back Pain, Lumbar Disc Herniation, Osteoarthritis Pain, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Peripheral Diabetic Neuropathy, Chronic Non-Cancer Pain, Gout, Migraines, Opioid-Induced Constipation, Sciatica, Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, Frozen Shoulder, Post-Amputation Pain and Post-Op Knee Pain After Total Knee Replacement. BHCR has developed a reputation of excellence among pharmaceutical sponsors and contract research organizations, many of whom return again and again with new trial opportunities. Numerous clinical trial participants, thoroughly satisfied with the level of study-related care they received, have enrolled in additional studies with us and have proven to be valuable sources for referrals.
