California still requires masks to be worn in health care settings. Patients, physicians and staff will be required to continue wearing masks at all Facey locations. Everyone over age 12 is now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in California and certain adults over 18 are eligible for a third booster shot if they received the Pfizer vaccine. Learn more.

For Patients 

Facey's Clinical Research Center is a dedicated research facility within Facey Medical Group staffed by highly trained individuals. The team is led by a doctor and also may include nurses, medical assistants, dieticians and others. All Facey providers are aware of our studies and communicate with the research center.

Facey is nationally respected and has conducted clinical studies for over eight years. We conduct mostly Phase III, IV and outcome studies. These studies occur much later in the drug development process and involve treatments that have been tested for many years.

Are clinical studies safe?

Volunteer safety is the highest priority of any research study. As a potential volunteer, our qualified staff will discuss the entire research process with you to help you fully understand the study participation. Participation in a clinical trial is completely voluntary and you can withdraw from a study at any time.

How is safety ensured?

Your medical condition is monitored during your participation in the study. Our staff keeps your doctor informed of your progress throughout. Clinical studies must be approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board, an independent committee outside of Facey.

Participating in a clinical study

Facey's Clinical Reseach Program is open to all. You don't need to be a Facey patient to participate. In fact, insurance is not required, nor are there any co-pays.

Through a clinical study, you may have access to a new treatment for your condition.

We invite you to contact us about our current clinical studies or to learn more about the clinical study process. Participating in a study is much like having a series of regular visits to the doctor’s office except that they are at no cost to you. In most cases, study medications and tests are also provided at no cost.

Please contact our Clinical Research Center to find out which studies may be right for you. All potential study participants must meet certain eligibility requirements. We look forward to having you join us in an important part of the progress in medicine!
