Dr. Lerman and the team determine who can participate in their clinical trials after a comprehensive evaluation. To get accurate data, clinical trials have set criteria for their participants. 

The criteria may include age, symptoms, diagnosis, medical history, and previous treatments. To participate in a clinical trial at Gables Neurology, you must meet the set criteria. 

Gables Neurology is a full-service neurology practice dedicated to providing their patients the best treatments available. If they think you can benefit from the treatment provided in the clinical trial, they do their best to include you. 

However, in addition to the set criteria, clinical trial participants must strictly adhere to the research guidelines. That may include taking only the medication given through the trial and attending the office visits as scheduled.
